HALBAN GUtech’s Bachelor programmes of International Business and Service Management as well as Logistics have received full accreditation by the Accreditation, Certification and Quality Control Institute (ACQUIN) based in Germany, for the next five years. “We are delighted to announce the first accreditation of our bachelor programmes in International Business and Service Management and in Logistics. During the accreditation process the curricula were evaluated as well as the infrastructure, the academic staff, etc. Having these programmes accredited by a German agency shows their quality and allows our graduates to continue their studies in Germany. We are particularly proud that we received the maximum accreditation period for first accreditations, which is further evidence of the confidence the panel of German and Austrian experts had in our programmes and educational environment. We value their feedback and their suggestions which further strengthen the programmes,” said Prof. Dr. Armin Eberlein, Vice-Rector for Academic Affairs at GUtech. All BSc and BEng programmes are internationally accredited ACQUIN.
Both Bachelor programmes are aligned with international business trends in the Gulf region while being committed to Oman’s vision for sustainable development, entrepreneurship and innovation. The BSc in International Business and Service Management, focuses on the growing tourism and travel sector worldwide, and the BSc in Logistics focuses on transportation management, supply chain management and the logistics of goods, services, and related information between their point of origin and the point of consumption in order to meet customer’s requirements.
“Within the wider framework of international business studies, these two Bachelor programmes combine theory and practice bringing students in direct contact with real life business scenarios in both economic sectors which are earmarked to lead the diversification of the Omani economy and create the job opportunities for future generations as per Oman’s vision 2040,” said Prof. Dr. Heba Aziz, Dean of the Faculty of Business and Economics.
