It has become evident, nowadays, that higher education institutions have become subject to the competition and the transparency of academic achievement compelling them to take the academic reform into their own hands by attaining accreditation for their institutions.

On the 17th of November, 2009, FIBAA granted the Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Graduate School of Business (TAG-SB)/German-Jordanian University (GJU) a five years accreditation to its MBA program.

The Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation (
FIBAA), a Swiss non-profit agency for quality assurance with operative branches in Bonn (Germany) and Zurich (Switzerland), is an international accreditation agency mainly active in Europe that assists higher education institutions in further developing their Bachelor, Master, and Ph.D. programs, through an intensive accreditation process. This process aims at quality improvement and the accreditation of the program. It comprises the consultation to quality management, the appraisal of the program concerning its structure and contents and the fulfillment of the requirements which are needed to bestow the FIBAA-quality seal. FIBAA has been an active member in the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA) since 2002 and in the European Quality Assurance Register for Higher Education (EQAR).

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.

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.
