The IBR Global MBA has been accredited by the Foundation of International Business Administration Accreditation FIBAA) since 1999. It carries the seal of the German Accreditation Council.

Furthermore, IBR Global MBA students and graduates are proud of the fact that their MBA degree does not only have a regular FIBAA accreditation, but has been awarded with the prestigious FIBAA Premium Seal for the second time in June 2019. FIBAA recognises such MBA programmes with a premium seal that exceed by far accreditation quality requirements. To date, only few other MBA programmes have been awarded with a premium seal, and even less for the second time in a row.


FIBAA has been incorporated by the head associations of the German, Swiss and Austrian industries in 1994, five years before the Bologna Declaration set the foundation for programme accreditation in Europe. From the outset, FIBAA’s objectives were to bring transparency into management education and to develop quality criteria that would serve as benchmarks for employers to assess academic institutions.
