TAG-SB Renews Accreditation for Seven Years from the Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation
On the 25th of November, 2016 Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Graduate School of Business (TAG-SB)/ German Jordanian University MBA Program has maintained a seven-year renewal of its accreditation (valid until the end of Summer Semester 2022) from the Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation (FIBAA).
Following the renewal application, FIBAA Assessment Board conducted on-campus review of the MBA Program in October 2016, which culminated in their recommendation that accreditation be extended for the School’s MBA program. FIBAA Assessment Board evaluated the following five key issues with special focus on internationality, employability and economic relevance: program objectives, admission standards, contents and structure concept of the study program, academic environment and framework standards, and finally quality assurance.
The accreditation is granted to MBA Programs that maintain the highest standards of quality in teaching, research, policies, practices, and alumni and students achievements and it also serves as an official recognition that TAG-SB is guided by internationally recognized standards and best practices with the highest quality.
Dr. Mamoun Akroush, Dean of TAG-SB stated that FIBAA accreditation is an internationally recognized standard for the highest quality in business education and since this was a renewal of accreditation, the School was requested not only to meet the initial standards, but had to demonstrate its ongoing commitment to teaching excellence.
Dr. Akroush also stated that students studying at accredited school can be assured that the education they receive is high academic quality and professional relevance. TAG-SB graduates compete with other graduates from top ranked universities worldwide.
FIBAA is an internationally experienced institution for quality assurance. It awards its Quality Seal to higher education institutions and programs of high quality worldwide. Excellent performances, especially those that demonstrate a strong strategy-based and international profile, receive the FIBAA Premium Seal.
