UE Receives FIBAA System Accreditation

The University of Europe for Applied Sciences (UE) has received system accreditation from the Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation (FIBAA) and thus the right to award the seal of the Accreditation Council itself for the study programmes it audits. As such, UE joins the ranks of the few private universities in Germany that bear this seal of quality. The subject of the successful system accreditation is an outstanding internal quality assurance system of the university.

UE has established a comprehensive and convincing quality management system and has proven its effectiveness, according to the decision of the FIBAA Accreditation and Certification Commission. Furthermore, the commission praised the strong dialogue approach of the QM system, which is coordinated and exemplified by the staff of the Office of University Development and Quality Management. They ensure a continuous flow of information in all departments, which forms the cornerstone of a living quality culture, the report continues.

Prof. Dr. Maurits van Rooijen, Rector of the University of Europe for Applied Sciences, is pleased about the award from the external commission and sees the UE University in an excellent position for the future, stating: “The system accreditation is a big step for UE towards establishing innovative study programmes. We are very proud to be among the few private universities that have managed to be awarded so highly for their quality.”

In addition to the qualitative confirmation of teaching, the university will now be able to react even more flexibly to the needs of the economy and the job requirements of tomorrow.

“We are in close exchange with our practical partners from the economy and creative industries and can now incorporate new developments in the labour markets into UE study programmes even more quickly, thus equipping our students in the best possible way with appropriate job skills and preparing them for their everyday working lives,” Rector van Rooijen explains further.

Along with the opening of the new Potsdam campus, UE Innovation Hub, the system accreditation is an important milestone for the university, which will thus further expand its presence.
