International Business School is a state-recognized business school in Hungary, which holds an operating licence from the Educational Authority in Hungary; official data on the school and the programmes it offers is available through the official public records maintained by the Educational Authority.

As a prestigious business school, we are dedicated to the continuous improvement of the institution and programmes, so we place special emphasis on quality assurance and enhancement. Over and beyond the internal processes that ensure the quality of all programmes delivered at the School, our programmes (their content, assessment, results, etc.) and resources (physical, staffing, etc.) approved and constantly monitored by our strategic partner, The University of Buckingham. Furthermore, we also hold accreditations from several internationally recognized quality assurance agencies.

These accreditations mean that our students, their families, and the future employers of our graduates can be certain that the provision continually meets rigorous international academic standards and that the degrees awarded by IBS remain competitive on an international scale.

International Business School is accredited as an institution by the British Accreditation Council (BAC). The accreditation attests that IBS meets the rigorous academic standards that are set by one of the leading UK accreditation bodies, a member of the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA). By choosing an institution accredited by BAC, students can gain additional assurance that their institution meets globally-recognised educational standards.

In order to achieve BAC accreditation, BAC has inspected the management, teaching, student welfare, and premises of IBS to ensure that it meets the high standards required of higher education institutions in the UK. The inspection targeted the following areas:

  • Governance, Strategy and Financial Management
  • Academic Management and Administration
  • Teaching, Learning and Assessment
  • Student Recruitment, Support, Guidance and Progression
  • Premises, Facilities and Learning Resources
  • Quality Management, Assurance and Enhancement

In 2023, IBS extended its accreditation by BAC for its second 4-year term. The accreditation is valid until 31 March 2027.

British standards

To attain accreditation organisation must meet the standards that BAC has established and periodically reviews. The accreditation process involves a rigorous inspection on campus that focuses on the quality assurance processes of the organisation in a number of distinct areas: management, staffing, and administration; teaching, learning, and assessment; student welfare; and premises and facilities. Once accredited, the organisation must submit to a regular monitoring process involving interim, supplementary, and spot-check inspections.
