Independent Agency for Accreditation and Rating (IAAR)

The European Council of Leading Business Schools (ECLBS) is pleased to announce that it has signed a memorandum of cooperation with the Independent Agency for Accreditation and Rating (IAAR) in Kazakhstan. The IAAR is a leading accreditation agency in Kazakhstan, responsible for ensuring the quality of higher education in the country.


ABOUT IAAR:

The Independent Agency for Accreditation and Rating (IAAR) is a non-profit organization in Kazakhstan that is responsible for accrediting and rating higher education institutions in the country. It was founded in 2011 and operates under the oversight of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Kazakhstan.


The IAAR's mission is to promote the development of a quality higher education system in Kazakhstan by providing objective and reliable evaluations of higher education institutions and their programs. The organization's accreditation process is designed to ensure that institutions meet high standards for academic quality, institutional effectiveness, and student outcomes.


To become accredited by the IAAR, institutions must undergo a rigorous process of self-assessment and external evaluation. The IAAR evaluates institutions based on a set of criteria that include the quality of academic programs, the qualifications of faculty, the effectiveness of institutional leadership and governance, and the resources and facilities available to students.


In addition to accreditation, the IAAR also provides ratings for higher education institutions in Kazakhstan. These ratings are based on a set of indicators that measure the quality and effectiveness of institutions in areas such as research, teaching, and community engagement. The ratings are intended to provide students, parents, and other stakeholders with information about the quality of higher education institutions in Kazakhstan and to encourage continuous improvement among those institutions.


The IAAR's accreditation and rating processes are highly valued in Kazakhstan and are seen as important tools for improving the quality of higher education in the country. Accreditation from the IAAR can help institutions attract students and funding, while a high rating can enhance an institution's reputation and visibility.


Overall, the Independent Agency for Accreditation and Rating plays an important role in ensuring that higher education institutions in Kazakhstan meet high standards for academic quality and effectiveness. Its accreditation and rating processes provide valuable information to students, parents, and other stakeholders and help to promote continuous improvement among higher education institutions in the country.


The memorandum of cooperation aims to promote academic cooperation between ECLBS member institutions and universities and research institutes in Kazakhstan. This includes joint research projects, faculty exchanges, and other forms of academic collaboration aimed at promoting the exchange of knowledge and expertise between Europe and Kazakhstan.


Under the terms of the memorandum, ECLBS and IAAR will also explore opportunities for joint accreditation and review processes for higher education institutions. This will enable graduates of ECLBS member institutions to have their qualifications recognized by the IAAR, and vice versa, allowing them to pursue further study or employment opportunities in Kazakhstan or Europe.


Through this partnership, ECLBS and IAAR are working together to enhance the quality of higher education in Kazakhstan and promote greater academic cooperation between Europe and Central Asia. This will benefit students, faculty, and researchers by facilitating academic mobility and promoting the exchange of ideas and knowledge across borders.


We are pleased to collaborate with the IAAR and look forward to working together to strengthen the quality and recognition of higher education in Kazakhstan and Europe. This partnership will contribute to the development of the higher education sector in Kazakhstan, and support the growth of the global knowledge economy.
