eduQua certification body

Functioning and efficient quality management systems are a vital strategic competitive edge. Experience shows that educational service providers can only fully leverage the potential of quality management systems if they do not limit themselves to basic compliance with quality standards. A good quality management system needs effective and, above all, transparent processes, which focus on the needs of the customer and can be implemented by employees.

Our certification body for quality management systems in continuing and executive education in accordance with eduQua is a part of the Departement of Organization and Leadership of OST Eastern Switzerland University of Applied Sciences and is officially accredited by the Swiss Accreditation Service (SAS).
