Proud Day as al Wittenborg's IBA Programmes Awarded ECA Accrediation
It was a proud day for WUAS this week when all its International Business Administration programmes (IBA) received the Certificate for Quality in Internationalisation by the European Consortium for Accreditation in Higher Education (ECA).
The accreditation is valid until 29 March 2024.
The ECA is an association of recognised accreditation and quality assurance agencies in Europe. Their assesment report praised Wittenborg’s international and intercultural learning environment, calling it “above average”.
“The international composition of WUAS teaching and administrative staff as well as the international composition of the WUAS student body are remarkable and have a clear impact on the university’s international profile and the quality of studies. Staff and students together create a truly international and intercultural atmosphere at WUAS, which benefits all university members."
“The teaching methods are such that the students are enabled to achieve the intended learning outcomes, and the assessment possibilities allow the lecturers to check adequately on the modules' specific international learning outcomes. Job positions of IBA graduates prove that the WUAS’ internationalisation strategy for the IBA programme is successful. "
“Hence, the international and intercultural content in the programme fall on fruitful ground, as both lecturers and students can share their knowledge and experience in the classes against their personal cultural and societal backgrounds."
“The panel therefore deems that the Bachelor programme International Business Administration (BBA) of WUAS, Apeldoorn, deserves the Certificate for Quality in Internationalisation by ECA, the European Consortium for Accreditation.”
