  • The accreditation of university degree courses: the sense and awareness of the reviewer
    The accreditation of recognised university degree programmes is an important process from an administrative, institutional and educational, as well as social and individual point of view. It brings to an end, at least temporarily, a cycle of renewal of university curricula that began in 2007 with legislation introduced that same year (Royal Decree 1393/2007). Given that it is an administrative measure, i.e. the outcome of accreditation means that a university degree will either be listed with or excluded from the Spanish register of higher education institutions and degrees (RUCT), it also has consequences for the universities and their faculties, departments and schools as regards what is taught in a curriculum and, ultimately, for the society promoting and supporting the whole process.

  • The accreditation of recognised university degree programmes: an assessment of the experience
    IQS School of Management, which comes under the Ramon Llull University, underwent the process of accreditation of three of its recognised degree programmes in the autumn of 2014, the outcome of which was favourable for all three programmes and for all aspects that were assessed.

    The three programmes, the Bachelor's programme in Business Administration and Management, the Master's programme in Industrial Business Management and the Master's programme in International Marketing and Sales Management, were validated in 2008, 2009 and 2012 respectively.
