Benefit from 30 years of experience in quality assurance and quality development in higher education

FIBAA is a nationally and internationally experienced quality assurance agency. Customer-oriented, efficient, fast and flexible work is one of its characteristics. FIBAA carries out evaluations in Germany in accordance with the State Treaty on the Accreditation of Higher Education Institutions (Studienakkreditierungsstaatsvertrag) and state law ordinances and internationally in line with the European Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ESG).

Economic & Practical relevance

Studies and teaching are not only measured by their academic quality, but also by their practical relevance and their references to professional practice. FIBAA was founded on the initiative of business associations and sees the promotion of employability and practical relevance as its trademark. In all of our committees and expert teams, we rely on a close connection between science and business. 

Customer orientation & flexibility

In the planning and implementation of all procedures, we focus on the customer with his or her special circumstances and preferences. With our wide range of services, we optimally cover the most diverse requirements. In addition to standardised tests, we also carry out individual evaluations and consultations. We will be happy to advise you on the special features of the individual procedures and clarify with you how your individual goals can best be realised.

Efficiency & short procedure duration

We design all procedures as efficiently as possible. From the submission of the self-documentation to the decision on accreditation or certification, the procedure takes on average only 4 to 6 months for a programme accreditation, usually only 4 months for a certification and approx. 12 months for a system accreditation or an institutional audit. 


Innovative spirit

Our customers are constantly developing innovative content, structures and formats to improve their study programmes - and we are happy to follow these paths. We see our quality criteria as an orientation framework that should leave room for individual solutions and which we are constantly developing further in comparison with new, even unusual approaches. 

Specialist expertise

As a specialist agency for the large field of economics, law and social sciences as well as management qualification, we have many years of experience with study programmes in these disciplines as well as with higher education institutions that have a profile focus here. In all procedures, we draw on our large network of proven subject experts. In addition, we actively participate in the discussion about quality standards in these subjects.


We see it as part of our mission to improve the transparency and comparability of qualifications for higher education institutions, other education providers, prospective students, employers and other interested parties. That is why we publish the results of the examination on our website after successful completion of the procedure. However, we also see transparency as an obligation for our own work processes. Therefore, we inform our customers before and during a quality process about each step of the procedure in detail.
