Quality Assurance in Postgraduate Education

The importance of quality assurance and accreditation in postgraduate education has increased significantly in recent years, due to the enormous growth that has characterized continuing education as a whole. Given the ever-increasing range of studies on offer, recognized quality marks and seals of approval are major criteria for potential candidates in making an informed choice of a continuing education course that is of high quality and also meets their aspirations.
Objective external evaluation of the various continuing education courses makes an international comparison with other programs possible and goes a long way to meeting the quality requirement of transparency. This, in turn, leads to an increase in student and graduate mobility, allowing the program to claim international appeal as well. External certification or accreditation is also an indication of the academic weight of the institution and makes its awareness of quality assurance and the need for ongoing optimization transparent to the world outside as well. Currently, selected programs of the Continuing Education Center are accredited by

  • FIBAA ("Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation")
  • ASIIN ("Akkreditierungsagentur für Studiengänge der Ingenieurwissenschaften, der Informatik, der Naturwissenschaften und der Mathematik e.V.)
  • RICS ("Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors") and
  • CEPI ("European Council of Real Estate Professions")
