CeQuInt certificate for International Business & Management Studies and International Business & Languages
Monday 15 January 2018
In December, an international panel visited the course programs International Business & Management Studies (IBMS) and International Business & Languages (IBL) for the CeQuInt visitation. CeQuInt stands for 'Certificate for Quality in Internationalization', a European feature in the field of internationalization in higher education. This involves looking at aspects such as vision, strategy and goals for internationalization, training programs, international activities, testing, staff, students, services and research. Both study programs got the CeQuInt certification with 'excellent' and 'good' scores on the required five standards.
The panel expressed its strong appreciation for many facets, including the great enthusiasm and commitment that the panel found across the entire board, the consistent approach consistently confirmed and supported by all stakeholders and the fact that internationalization contributes to the quality of education. The programs are seen as forerunners in the field of internationalization.
Naturally, the both course programs are extremely proud of the result achieved. This outcome is the result of an approximately five-year process of consistent and strategic work on internationalization in all facets of the program; in the formal and informal curriculum and in relation to the larger organization. The course program is validated and further encouraged. At the same time, it makes the international ambition of NHL Stenden visible.
