Die Ergebnisse der diesjährigen Evaluationen sind sehr erfreulich, weil sie zeigen, dass die Heidelberg International Business Academy große Entwicklungsfortschritte vollzogen und ein anspruchsvolles akademisches Niveau erreicht hat.

 Auszüge aus den Berichten der External Examiner:
“HIBA is an exceptionally well organised institution with a considerable strength in its working culture. Staff are strongly committed to standards and to good pedagogy.”
“Students work is of a very good standard and is comparable to that of students in similar UK and European institutions. ”

 “The organisation and presentation of work, and the standard of English in the level 3 assignments, is commendable. ”
 “In the three languages, the business correspondence part of the course is very professionally taught and students are capable of writing business letters in English, French and Spanish with very few mistakes, using sophisticated epistolary conventions of the countries concerned. A further area of excellence was the German into English translation; students displayed excellent receptive skills and some were able to write fluent and elegant English too. ”
“The students continue to have very good industry and operational knowledge and awareness of current management issues.”
“..  it is evident that teachers know their students well, remain committed and enthusiastic in their work …”
“I was particularly impressed by the quality and the quantity of the feedback on so many scripts. The comments were not merely used to justify the grade awarded but were constructive and put students in the right direction.”
“Exemplary practice here.”
“The curriculum is well designed and current, and has been further refined this year.”
“The course materials … are of a very high standard indeed.“
“Students work is of a very good standard and is comparable to that of students in similar UK and European institutions.”
“…there was evidence of increasing creativity and willingness to explore more contentious and challenging topics amongst the level 3 work, which was very good, and another indicator of the maturity of the programme …”
“The students demonstrate a willingness to engage with challenging topics and a range of assessment processes. They also show a good understanding of the practical relationship between their academic effort and business in practice.”
“In the three languages, the business correspondence part of the course is very professionally taught and students are capable of writing business letters in English, French and Spanish with very few mistakes, using sophisticated epistolary conventions of the countries concerned. A further area of excellence was the German into English translation; students displayed excellent receptive skills and some were able to write fluent and elegant English too.”
