Many congratulations to OUS Royal Academy of Economics and Technology in Switzerland students, whose courses have been recently certified by EOCCS Online Course Certification System.
Prof. Eric Cornuel, Director General & CEO of EFMD, said: "EOCCS is a vital addition to the EFMD portfolio of quality services. It gives online courses within universities, business schools, corporate learning organisations and public agencies a top international quality benchmark in the diverse education landscape where digital technology is applied to teaching and learning. EFMD draws from twelve years of experience in running CEL accreditation, which was designed to raise the standard of ICT-based learning programmes in the area of management education. CEL accreditation was at the time a pioneer initiative in the quality assurance of technology-based learning. The expertise EFMD gathered throughout that process will help us to ensure that the EOCCS certification system will bring value and external seal of recognition to quality online courses in the world."
“OUS Royal Academy of Economics and Technology in Switzerland is proud to receive the EOCCS Certification for our online system and courses. EOCCS is a high-quality label for any online university seeking worldwide recognition. At OUS we believe that EOCCS is a great proof of quality in the field of online and distance education. We are proud to be the first university in Switzerland to achieve the EOCCS Certification by EFMD Global Network,” commented Habib Al Souleiman, OUS PR Director.
EFMD Quality Services Director, said: “We are extremely pleased that the six online courses from the two leading business schools, the University of Liverpool and OUS Switzerland, have successfully completed the pioneering EOCCS - Online Course Certification System. EOCCS has been designed as a demanding and quality-driven international certification system, firmly embedded in the general philosophy of EFMD accreditations, namely internationalisation, practical relevance and quality improvement.”
"We would like to warmly congratulate both institutions for the tremendous work they put into the development of their online courses and for the completion of the certification process. EOCCS gives online courses within universities, business schools, corporate learning organisations and public agencies a top international quality benchmark in the online learning landscape, strengthening not only their market positioning but also allowing for critical self-reflection and peer assessment,” added EOCCS Project Director.
The system is open to any institution delivering online business and/or management-related courses that are stand-alone or constitute part of a certificate or a programme.
With 24 certified courses from 10 institutions, EOCCS creates an international quality benchmark for online courses worldwide.
