Quality Management

Quality management at the FHNW School of Business makes an important contribution to the continuous optimisation of our core business in undergraduate/graduate and executive education as well as our research and services with a proven high impact in practice and research. Our mission and strategy guide our actions.

National and international accreditation

AACSB-logo-member-color-RGB.pngThe FHNW University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland as a whole is accredited by the Swiss Accreditation Council. In July 21, after a long period of preparation, the FHNW School of Business also received initial accreditation from AACSB - one of the most renowned accreditation organisations for business schools worldwide. The quality label "AACSB accredited" certifies that the school belongs to the top 6% of the world's business schools.

Students and participants of our executive education programmes benefit from the AACSB accreditation in two ways: On the one hand, they acquire their educational degree at a university that is distinguished for the quality of its educational programmes on the national and international stage. On the other hand, they benefit indirectly from the quality processes that have been set up to ensure innovative, high-quality teaching that is geared to the needs of the market.

We attach particular importance to reviewing the quality of our degree programmes and continuing education programmes. This is characterised by the fact that the competences to be acquired in the course correspond to the needs of the (current and future) labour market on the one hand and are actually learned by the course/programme participants on the other. To ensure and optimise these objectives, we are in constant exchange with stakeholders from practice and science. Progress in the learning process to acquire the skills to be achieved in the individual degree programmes and programmes is systematically and regularly reviewed (e.g. via the analysis of performance records).
