We’re extending our congratulations to OBS Business School, Spain, for their recent EOCCS re-certification!

The EFMD Certification Board granted the EOCCS re-certification to the following suite of five courses within the Master’s Degree in Innovation and Entrepreneurship:

  • Leadership and Change Management
  • Creative Thinking and Design Thinking
  • Creating New Business Models
  • Innovation in Processes
  • Product Management and Growth Hacking

OBS is a Spanish private and entirely online business school, founded in 2006, which is part of a larger corporate group named Grupo Planeta Formación y Universidades. The re-certified courses belong to the Master’s Degree in Innovation and Entrepreneurship, which is attractive for professionals in the process of building their careers.

The school continually enhances its online learning methodologies and takes a systematic approach towards faculty training for online teaching, and thus creates an effective ecosystem for faculty improvement. The institution provides a robust technological infrastructure and puts the student in the centre of the learning process.

The OBServatory seminar is another asset and a fruitful resource for the school. The seminar brings together an international network of deans, academic directors, lecturers and researchers with the aim to promote research and share experience regarding methodologies, management and technologies in online education.

Keith Pond, EOCCS Director, commented on the recent success: ‘We are glad to recognise once again the OBS Business School’s quality of the educational environment with regard to learning activities and their systematic provision of faculty training and guidelines for online teaching. This achievement confirms both the school’s commitment to excellence and continuous improvement.’

Casilda Güell, Dean OBS Business School, said: ‘We are very proud to find out that OBS Business School has been re-certified for another three years by EOCCS, by EFMD Global. OBS Business School is based in Barcelona and was born online in 2006. OBS is particularly proud of its pedagogical learning model and has a student-centred learning approach.

It is a great pleasure for OBS to be part of the EOCCS and EFMD community and we look forward to continue working with you in the future in order to further enhance the academic quality of our online academic proposal.’
