The Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders NVAO is highly enthusiastic about the International Business and Management Studies (IBMS) in Breda. So much so, that the IBMS intended exit qualifications were actually awarded the rating of excellent.
Generally, accreditation panels will only rarely rate individual programme components as excellent. This achievement leaves Dean of Avans School of International Studies Nies Rijnders with a great sense of pride: ‘This accreditation represents the culmination of years of teamwork.’
In addition to the excellent rating for intended exit qualifications, IBMS also scores well on all other components: learning environment, examinations and achieved exit qualifications.
The study programmes are accredited every six years.
