European Council for Business Education
Our purpose is to support excellence in business education by actively encouraging experimentation and profoundly superior levels of teaching. In addition we provide an interactive forum, which addresses the educational challenges inherent in relationships between governments, business, industry and academia.
ECBE and Europe
Through its accreditation programmes ECBE ensures that accredited members meet the requirements of the EHEA as recommended by the European Commission following the Bologna Declaration. Beyond these requirements, emphasis is placed on the needs of students in the learning process. Outputs in terms of both knowledge and skills are evaluated and awarded credits at various learning levels, conforming to the European Quality Framework (EQF) guidelines.
By providing services for education worldwide, ECBE aims to improve the quality of Business Education.
