Avans is the first Higher Education Institution in the Netherlands which receives the FIBAA Premium Seal. The FIBAA Accreditation Committee for Programmes decided to award the Premium Seal to the bachelor programme International Business and Management Studies (IBMS) of the Avans School of International Studies (ASIS).
With its Premium Seal, FIBAA distinguishes study programmes, which have proven their excellent quality in studies and teaching. It provides those interested in studies, such as students, graduates, higher education institutions as well as the employment market with reliable orientation on the outstanding quality of the degree programme.
Strong focus on industry practice
The expert panel points out in the assessment report: ‘Detailed, convincing reasons are given for the way in which the programme is embedded into ASIS’s strategy through its emphasis on cooperation with international academic institutions, its internationality in general, and its strong focus on industry practice through co-operations with enterprises both in the region and in foreign countries.’
Nies Rijnders, dean of ASIS, stated to be very proud of this achievement and that he and his team will further the development of this business school in order to reach an even higher level of which both students and other stakeholders can benefit.
