NVAO Accreditation for 21 programs of the Tilburg School of Economics and Management

The Dutch accreditation organization NVAO has reaccredited all 21 programs of the Tilburg School of Economics and Management (TiSEM). NVAO concluded that the programs meet all requirements which are needed. These requirements are related to learning objectives, curricula of the programs, student assesments and the achievement of the learning outcomes. The reaccreditation is valid until June 2024.


Every six years, an academic degree program has to be reaccredited by NVAO.  All programs of TiSEM applied for this accreditation. The process included the writing of a Self- evaluation report by the Academic Directors, a site visit of an international panel of peers with meetings of internal and external stakeholders of the programs, a review report written by this panel and the final decision of NVAO.


TiSEM organized the NVAO reaccreditation in conjunction with the Continuously Improvement Review for the international accreditation agency AACSB. AACSB granted the reaccreditation in April 2017. Both accreditations stimulate TiSEM to keep working on maintaining the level of quality of the programs and to continuously improve and innovate.
