Quality Management in Higher Education and Administration
Quality management , as part of a strategic control mechanism, has become very important to universities and public administrative bodies. However, there are still not enough specialised training programmes in this area. This certificate course is uniquely tailored to the special requirements of QM in public institutions and aims to close the gaps in this sector.
Besides the essential insights into QM, the certificate course teaches in an extra-occupational and practice-oriented way the required skills to build and develop a comprehensive QM system.
