Recognition and Accreditation.
Recognized accreditations, awards, partnerships and memberships guarantee the excellent quality of the university and its study programmes. All study programmes are accredited by the independent accreditation agency FIBAA, and recently, five degree programmes were additionally distinguished with FIBAA's rarely awarded golden Premium Seal. IUBH is the first university in Germany to be awarded five premium seals.
The IUBH consistently achieves high ratings in assessment measures, including top marks in the current CHE-Ranking 2014 in all relevant categories. In the field of business administration the IUBH ranks as Germany's best private university of applied sciences with the most ratings in the top performing group.
The IUBH is a founding member as well as the only German university in the association "Hotel Schools of Distinction" and was the first and only private university to be awarded the UN Seal of Quality UNWTO.TedQual for its degree programmes in tourism. Additional awards and membership round off the quality profile.
