International QA audit procedures

At the request of the International School for Social and Business Studies (ISSBS), Celje, Slovenia, the Agency for Science and Higher Education initiated an external quality asurance audit procedure of ISSBS in September 2014. After audit activities and deadlines have been agreed upon by both ISSBS and ASHE, ASHE Accreditation Council appointed a panel of experts that carried out a site-visit to the institution on 26-27 March 2015. First audit report was adopted in May and submitted to ISSBS in June 2015. During the follow-up phase, ISSBS implemented panel’s recommendations, and upon the completion of this phase in January 2016, the panel drafted the Final audit report on the level of development of ISSBS’s quality assurance system. The report was published on the Agency website in March 2016.
