International School of Economic and Administrative Sciences, Universidad de la Sabana, blends its online strategy into the institutional one and aims to develop a hybrid teaching model putting students’ needs at the centre of attention.

The school’s pedagogical approach highlights the significance of constructivist learning environments, and more specifically, autonomous, active and collaborative learning. Furthermore, the institution has developed a comprehensive training on digital teaching methods for its faculty members and encourages learning communities for teaching and learning to enhance faculty interaction and sharing of good practice.

‘EOCCS certification is an objective confirmation of the high quality of online standards of our business school. This certification is even more significant in the present circumstances that surround the assurance of learning in online education and learners’ engagement. I would also like to congratulate EFMD for its fantastic EOCCS team led by Keith Pond and Antonia Lütgens who made the certification process both challenging and revealing, and allowed us to harness their insights as our school moves forward towards a competitive hybrid model,’ said Catherine Pereira, Dean of the International School of Economic and Administrative Sciences, Universidad de La Sabana, Colombia.

Instituto Superior San Ignacio de Loyola (ISIL) is an agile institution, who supports continuous course development and invests in staff training and resources. In 2014, the school has implemented a new strategy and methodology to drive the institutional online strategy with the goal of redesigning and updating its programmes and re-imagining education with technology.

The certified courses have a very practical approach and draw on the experience and corporate connections of the course teachers and developers. The course contents are close to the market and are designed with care and attention on the employability of students.

‘This certification for ISIL is a very important milestone in a journey we began six years ago with the objective to design and deliver quality and relevant online education. It is an honour to be a part of a select group of educational institutions that have received this recognition around the world and to represent Peru as the only institution to achieve it,’ said Jose Miguel Marchena, Innovation and Development Manager, Instituto Superior San Ignacio de Loyola S.A.

With 116 certified courses from 24 institutions in 14 countries, EOCCS presents an international quality benchmark for online courses worldwide.
