ACCREDITATION: A GUARANTEE OF QUALITY
In order to ensure quality, study programmes are regularly reviewed. This is done by independent, external accreditation agencies that perform a similar function in the higher education landscape as the MOT in the assessment of test for cars. Only those instututions which have passed a successful accreditation will receive a certificate and thus an important quality feature.
The study programme International Tourism Management concludes with the academic degree Master of Business Administration from the Nürtingen / Geislingen University of Applied Sciences HfWU.
HfWU’s degrees are accredited by the German AQAS (Agency for Quality Assurance through Accreditation of Study Programmes) according to the guidelines of the Conference of Ministers of Education in accordance with the Bologna process for the approximation of European standards.
