Accreditations

CESA School of Business is going through three accreditation processes towards achieving the highest standards of quality and internationalization.

  • Certification of the Library’s Quality Management System

    What is it about?

    The Quality Management System is a certification that recognizes the services CESA’s Library offers, nationally and internationally.

    What is the process?

    The certification consists in implementing a Quality System, which is evaluated and certificated under the standards of ISO9001:2008 norms, by an external organism. This body grants national and international recognition of quality services, in this case, the management of the Library towards CESA’s community.

    Benefits for the institution

    When achieving the Quality Management System Certification CESA will be granted national and international recognition for the quality of the services offered at its Library.

  • Institutional Accreditation

    What is it about?

    In Colombia, where there is great diversity in the offer of higher education, comprised of not only many different programs, but also significant differences in quality, the Institutional Accreditation has a strategic role within the policy oriented towards promoting the improvement of the Higher Education System.

    What is the process?

    This accreditation process is voluntary. CESA manifested its willingness to get institutional accreditation before the National Accreditation Council.

    Benefits for the institution

    Accreditation is the path towards the state’s public recognition of CESA, the quality of the institution, and the achievement of its goals and objectives.This is the time to compare the education offered, with the education recognized as valid and desirable.

  • International Accreditation

    What is it about?

    CESA School of Business is initiating an institutional process to achieve diverse international accreditations, known as the: "Triple Accreditation".

    What is the process?

    The process that began with the European Accrediting EFMD and its EDAF program consists of a preliminary accompaniment that provides CESA with the support of international Deans, who collaborate with the institution in order to reach international levels of quality in all its processes.

    Once the EDAF Certification is finalized, the institution may present itself to the appropriate accreditation process. On one hand, the EPAS Accreditation internationally validates the undergraduate Business Administration program, and on the other, EQUIS accredits the Institution and its diverse programs.

    Benefits for the institution

    This certification is part of the Quality and Internationalization process that CESA is going through.
