ecbelogoInternational accreditation is one of the mechanisms for ensuring the quality of higher education in the European Higher Education Area.

Undertaking such accreditation is a free-will and independent decision of a higher educational institution.

In 2013, Alfred Nobel University was the first HEI in Ukraine that undertook international accreditation in the European Council for Business Education (ECBE, Belgium) and received the certificate of compliance of its MBA programme to European educational quality standards.

International accreditation guarantees that the diploma will be recognized all over the world.

Accreditation at the international level allows to increase the level of competitiveness of educational services and to really improve the quality of the study process through self-assessment procedures and implementation of recommendations provided by an independent institution for assessing the quality of higher education.

The MBA programme, which has been implemented in the International Business School IBS since 2009 at Alfred Nobel University, is the first and only MBA programme in Ukraine which meets the ECBE standards.
