We wish to have an e-Certificate

the annual membership certificate fee (49 Euro) is a necessary expense for members who wish to obtain an e-certificate confirming their status with our organization. While the fee may seem like an extra cost, the benefits of having an e-certificate can outweigh the expense, making it a worthwhile investment for many members.

We care

Welcome! we provide all the tools, guidance, and support our members need to succeed in their respective quality assurance. Take a look around and explore the various services we offer, join us in our workshops or conferences, and get in touch with other schools and universities, the agencies that we’ve partnered with, and some of our individual members.

Business education should focus on ethical decision-making, communication, and technology.
