IBC-M developed three high-quality academic programmes in partnership with higher education institutions in Denmark: Lillebaelt Academy of Professional Higher Education, Tietgen Business College, and University College Lillebaelt. After several years of intense information and skills exchange, where the study programmes were adapted to the local context and staff and teachers received intensive training, the curriculum development stage of the partnership was completed in 2014. The programmes have now been fully handed over to IBC-M.
The partnership with the Danish institutions is now operating on a maintenance level, with key Danish teachers continuing to implement their quality oversight of IBC-M’s assessment and examinations process. By maintaining this agreement, IBC-M students receive double degrees, meaning that they gain a diploma from both IBC-M and from the relevant partner college in Denmark upon successful completion of their study programme.
- Marketing and Management/International Sales and Marketing and Environmental and Agricultural Management students receive degrees from Lillebaelt Academy of Professional Higher Education (EAL).
- Public Administration/Public Service Management students receive degrees from University College Lillebaelt (UCL)
At IBC-M, we are committed to transparency and accountability in all of our practice. We conduct annual surveys of our staff and student body, the results of which are shared with our community. We use the findings to direct training, development, and improvement within the college.
