Certified quality management

Austrian universities of applied sciences are required to have their quality management systems audited every seven years. The independent, external auditors assess the functionality and performance of the quality management system. The evaluation process also opens up excellent opportunities for organisational development.

UAS BFI Vienna completed the certification process in 2017. Lasting about 18 months, it involved staff from almost every area of the university as well as students and part-time lecturers. Certification was awarded by the accreditation agency Evaluationsagentur Baden-Württemberg (evalag) on 6 October 2017. The audit provides the university with an important source of impetus to move forward in order to achieve continuous improvements.
