Algebra University College received the initial program accreditation recommendation letter from the Agency for Science and Higher Education (ASHE) on July 30, 2015. The final accreditation for the professional master’s degree study program ‘e-Leadership MBA’ was issued by the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports of the Republic of Croatia on May 30, 2016.
In May 2019, we applied for partial amendments and modifications of the program. The program is currently executed under the reaccreditation recommendation, issued by ASHE on September 21, 2020.
Furthermore, Algebra University College has applied for a membership and accreditation of the e-Leadership MBA program with the Association of MBAs (AMBA).
In 2010, Algebra University College successfully underwent the institutional accreditation process managed by the NVAO (Netherlands – Vlaamse Accreditatieorganisatie), Accreditation Organization of the Netherlands and Flanders. It is important to point out that this was the first external audit of an internal quality assurance system carried out in a Croatian higher education institution. Since then, Algebra University College is the only Croatian institution compliant to the demanding higher education quality standards of one of the leading European accreditation agencies.
We are equally proud of our EHEA/ESG certificate (EHEA – European Higher Education Area – also known as ESG – European Standards and Guidelines), received from the Agency for Science and Higher Education (ASHE) in September 2012. The Croatian legal framework stipulates the implementation of such external audits in each accredited institution once every five years. The QA audit of a higher education institution is a periodic systematic procedure ascertaining whether the activities and the results of these activities, that make up the system of quality assurance of a higher education institution, are efficient and in compliance with national standards and the ESG. The audit also serves to evaluate the contribution to continuous improvement of quality and culture of education. In return, the development of the quality assurance system improves all of our activities, especially educational ones. Algebra University College successfully underwent this independent audit with the highest results, making it the first private institution within the Croatian education system to have been awarded this type of certificate. In addition, this certificate has confirmed that all educational activities, conducted by Algebra University College, are in accordance with quality and standards applied in similar university colleges in the European Union.
