We are delighted to announce the initial accreditation of the Bachelor of International Marketing & Logistics Administration (BIMLA) and Bachelor of Administration & Service (BA&S) Programme Set as well as the re-accreditation of the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and Bachelor of International Business (BIB) Programme Set at the International School of Economic and Administrative Sciences (EICEA), Universidad de La Sabana.
The Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and Bachelor of International Business (BIB) Programme Set was re-accredited by EPAS and praised the continuous emphasis on internationalisation, one of the EPAS cornerstones, as well as the high student quality and strong employment rates. At the programme level, the very positive feedback from stakeholders speaks to an excellent reputation.
Congratulating the EICEA on their success, the Director of EPAS, Jens Tøndel, said: “The institution continues in its commitment to quality assurance and it offers excellent premises together with the student learning environment. The EICEA’s undergraduate programmes offer practical relevance as proved by the employment rates of their graduates and prides itself on good corporate connections.”
The Bachelor of International Marketing & Logistics Administration (BIMLA) and Bachelor of Administration & Service (BA&S) Programme Set targets the high academic ability of its student body and assures individualised personal development of their students. The Peer Review Team acknowledges the strong student mobility numbers and the support for international mobility initiatives.
Catherine Pereira Villa, Dean of the International School of Economic and Administrative Sciences, shared her enthusiasm by saying: “We celebrate that the International School of Economic and Administrative Sciences is the first School in Colombia and Latin America to have obtained EPAS accreditation for all its undergraduate programmes in Management.
The accreditation from EFMD represents an achievement that will significantly contribute to our standing among Faculties and Business Schools in the region. Furthermore, it will allow us to improve our cooperation with internationally accredited partners around the world, which will encourage the development of our academic community, including faculty, students and administrative staff.”
“Our School is committed to offering specialized management programmes characterized by their practical relevance, internationalization, experiential learning, corporate connections, high employability and personalized education, which are some of the strengths highlighted by the peer review team. Our School will continue to work on quality assurance strategies, thus maintaining accreditation which is in itself a demanding task, because it requires constant improvement,” she concluded.
There are currently 111 EPAS-accredited programmes from 81 schools across 36 countries. For more information on EPAS visit www.efmdglobal.org/epas
