Subject and objectives of the procedure

The Institutional Strategic Management Accreditation focuses particularly on innovative, entrepreneurial and internationally oriented Higher Education Institutions (HEI). The procedure contains a comprehensive evaluation of the institutional strategy. Higher Education Institutions receive feedback on the future prospects of their structures and processes as well as impetus for further development. The relevant areas of the Higher Education Institution in this procedure are: 

  • Management;
  • Networking;
  • Teaching and Learning;
  • Research; and
  • Dynamics.

The procedure gives the Higher Education Institution a detailed evaluation of it’s strengths and weaknesses and shows the essential future opportunities and threats. This enables the HEI to identify and take efficient measures to achieve the self-imposed goals.

A successful Institutional Accreditation is valid for 6 years (initial accreditation) or 8 years (re-accreditation).
