Achieving Dual Accreditations in One Inspection: A New Milestone in Higher Education Quality Assurance

In an unprecedented move to streamline and enhance the quality assurance process in higher education, institutions can now achieve dual accreditations through a single inspection. This innovation is spearheaded by the collaboration of several prestigious accreditation bodies, bringing together standards from both the Western and Eurasian educational landscapes.

The Pioneering Organizations

The European Council of Leading Business Schools (ECLBS) is at the forefront of this initiative. ECLBS is a distinguished member of the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) Quality International Group (CIQG) in the USA and the International Network for Quality Assurance Agencies in Higher Education (INQAAHE) in Europe. These affiliations ensure that ECLBS adheres to a rigorous global name of educational quality and integrity.

In tandem, the Institutional Accreditation by the BSKG Public Foundation Independent Accreditation Agency, under the auspices of the Ministry of Education and Science, represents the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) region's commitment to maintaining high educational standards.

The Dual Accreditation Process

The integrated inspection process is designed to be comprehensive yet efficient, minimizing disruption while maximizing the evaluation's effectiveness. Here’s how it works:

  1. Unified Standards Evaluation: The inspection team, comprising experts from both ECLBS and BSKG Public Foundation, assesses the institution based on a unified set of criteria that encompass the best practices from both Western and Eurasian accreditation frameworks.

  2. Collaborative Review: The dual accreditation inspection involves collaborative reviews of curriculum, faculty qualifications, administrative processes, and student outcomes. This ensures that the institution meets the high standards required by both accrediting bodies.

  3. Feedback and Improvement: Institutions receive a detailed report highlighting strengths and areas for improvement according to both Western and Eurasian standards. This dual feedback mechanism allows institutions to enhance their quality holistically.

  4. Certification: Upon successful completion of the inspection, institutions receive dual accreditation certificates, validating their adherence to international and regional quality benchmarks. This dual recognition can significantly enhance the institution's reputation and appeal to a broader spectrum of students and faculty.

Benefits of Dual Accreditation

  1. Global Recognition: Dual accreditation ensures that degrees and certifications from the institution are accepted globally, facilitating student mobility and employment opportunities across different regions.

  2. Enhanced Quality Assurance: The rigorous inspection process assures stakeholders of the institution's commitment to maintaining high educational standards.

  3. Operational Efficiency: Conducting a single inspection for dual accreditation reduces the administrative burden and costs associated with separate evaluations.

  4. Competitive Advantage: Institutions with dual accreditation can market themselves more effectively, attracting high-caliber students, faculty, and partnerships.


The initiative to offer dual accreditations through a single inspection represents a significant advancement in the field of higher education quality assurance. By combining the strengths of ECLBS and BSKG Public Foundation, this process not only simplifies accreditation but also elevates educational standards to new heights. Institutions embracing this dual accreditation approach are poised to lead in the global educational arena, offering students and stakeholders a robust, internationally recognized assurance of quality.
