FIBAA - The Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation
The Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation (FIBAA) accredits Bachelor, Master's and, since 2003, "Diplom" courses in fields such as business administration, economics, business computing, engineering and business administration, business psychology, business law, etc. in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The courses are provided by public or state-approved higher education (HE) institutions or private HE institutions seeking state approval and the accreditation process is based on the law of the federal state or country concerned. With Bachelors and Masters being new degrees in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, FIBAA's work aims to ensure that the courses offer high quality and career relevance and that they are endorsed by both academia and the market. Its Foundational Council and Accreditation Council meetings are held in one of the three countries on a rotating basis. The Foundation's areas of activity are:
1) accreditation of Bachelor and Master's courses and
2) provision of information and advice on Bachelor and Master's courses to universities, students and companies.
Establishment of FIBAA
FIBAA was established in September 1994, initially with the goal of making the MBA (Master of Business Administration) market more transparent. In 1999, its remit was expanded to take in economics-related Bachelor and Master's courses in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
In workshops, the DIHT (Association of German Chambers of Industry and Commerce) and the BDA (Confederation of German Employers' Associations), academics and corporate representatives from Germany, Austria and Switzerland drew up methods for auditing and appraising courses, taking examples of international practice as their starting point. Together with the Swiss and Austrian trade associations, they created a Swiss foundation as the institutional framework for this new field of activity. Right from the beginning, academics and representatives of trade associations and companies from all three countries had seats on FIBAA's Council and Accreditation Commission and they were joined by trade unionists and student representatives in 1999. The Foundation Council also counts a Dutch academic and a Swedish company representative among its number.
International involvement
In 1997, FIBAA joined European Quality Link - EQUAL, the European association of national accrediting bodies for economics-oriented courses. FIBAA has played an active part in the association's work and the fruits of that work, such as the "European Guidelines for MBA programmes", the "Distance Learning Guidelines", a classification system for Master's courses, the "Bachelor Guidelines" and documents aimed at resolving specific issues, for example the documents on "Internationalisation" and "Research and Development".
EQUAL views itself as a "think tank" for EQUIS - The European Quality Improvement System. Rather than accrediting individual courses, EQUIS accredits business schools - those which are distinctly internationally oriented - in their entirety. Along with the other members of the EQUAL Board, FIBAA considers itself as an ambassador for EQUIS accreditations and sees one of its tasks as promoting the EQUIS concept in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Successful providers of courses with an international approach can help advance the internationalisation of the European HE sector and develop a quality culture.
FIBAA has been a member of ENQA and has been involved in the creation of ECA, the European Consortium for Accreditation, since 2003.
