Our Accreditations

In pursuit of excellence in teaching and research, accreditations and rankings play a crucial role for EBS. We actively monitor our ranking positions and regularly seek the independent assessment of our activities and our institution as a whole through national and international accreditations. We are committed to continuously reviewing, evaluating and enhancing the quality of our degree programmes, research and executive education activities as well as our administrative support processes.

In May 2012, EBS Universität für Wirtschaft und Recht was granted 10-year accreditation by the German Council of Science and Humanities. This academic seal of approval is awarded to private higher education institutions whose teaching and research performance meet recognized academic standards. Depending on the outcome of the accreditation process, accreditation is granted for a maximum term of ten years.

The Council of Science and Humanities is one of the leading science policy advisory bodies in Germany. It advises the Federal Government and the governments of the German federal states on the development of science, research and higher education. During the Council’s multi-step accreditation process, which comprises the presentation of a self-report and an external peer review visit lasting several days, the institution is assessed across eight priority areas. These include the academic quality of teaching and research, infrastructure and facilities, as well as quality assurance and development. In awarding the 10-year accreditation, the Council highlighted EBS convincing growth strategy, the University’s outstanding success in the acquisition of third-party funding and its broad self-conception as an institution dedicated to education and research.



All study programmes at EBS Universität für Wirtschaft und Recht are state-recognized and accredited by the Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation (FIBAA). State approval of Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes is a prerequisite for accreditation by one of the ten accreditation agencies operating in German-speaking countries.

FIBAA specializes in the accreditation of business studies programmes. Accreditation by FIBAA is a multi-step process, in which an expert group appointed by the agency assesses the quality of the programme in hand. Assessment also includes an on-site visit by the team of experts, with a particular focus on the evaluation of the study programme’s international dimension, the career prospects for graduates from the programme and the practical orientation of courses. Accreditation is awarded for a term of five years. After expiration of this term the university is required to apply for re-accreditation and has to go through the assessment process once more. Re-accreditation is granted for a period of up to seven years.
