Accreditation & Double Degrees

International Accreditation

IBCM was the first international higher education institution in Kosovo to obtain European institutional and programme accreditation. Accreditation has been awarded  by the German accreditation agency “Evaluationsagentur Baden-Wuerttemberg” EVALAG.  EVALAG accreditation is valid from January 2013 until 2016 (institution) and 2018 (programmes).

EVALAG accreditation certifies that IBCM meets highest European quality standards. EVALAG is a high level accreditation agency which is a full member of the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA).  EVALAG has also audited top German universities such as the University of Heidelberg and the University of Konstanz.

Double degrees

IBCM developed three high-quality academic programmes in partnership with higher education institutions in Denmark: Lillebaelt Academy of Professional Higher EducationTietgen Business College, and University College Lillebaelt. After several years of intense information and skills exchange, where the study programmes were adapted to the local context and staff and teachers received intensive training, the curriculum development stage of the partnership was completed in 2014. The programmes have now been fully handed over to IBCM.

The partnership with the Danish institutions is now operating on a maintenance level, with key Danish teachers continuing to implement their quality oversight of IBCM’s assessment and examinations process. By maintaining this agreement, IBCM students receive double degrees, meaning that they gain a diploma from both IBCM and from the relevant partner college in Denmark upon successful completion of their study programme.
