Quality Assurance

As an internationally accredited higher education institution, IBCM is committed to ensuring that our students receive a high quality education that prepares them for the world of work.

International accreditation

IBCM is accredited  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. To see the Institutional Accreditation seal please click here.

Double degrees

IBCM developed three high-quality academic programmes in partnership with higher education institutions in Denmark: Lillebaelt Academy of Professional Higher Education, Tietgen 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.

At IBCM, we are committed to transparency and accountability in all of our practice. We conduct annual surveys of our staff and student body, the results of which are shared with our community. We use the findings to direct training, development, and improvement within the college.
