The Criteria for Accreditation
The Criteria, or Standards, for accreditation have been developed and approved by the membership of ECBE and are the tools used to identify the strengths and weaknesses of an institution and measure its overall effectiveness in carrying out its mission.
The criteria are designed to cover all aspects of teaching and administration within a department or faculty of economics, business administration or management of a university, as well as independent business schools.
Care has to be taken to allow for the differences of emphasis due to regional and cultural diversity within Europe. The application and maintenance of the standards is one of the chief roles of the Board of Commissioners that acts independently of the Board of Directors.
