International accreditation

The Network of International Business Schools (NIBS) is an association of 70+ schools of business from leading universities around the world. We collaborate to provide outstanding, internationally-oriented business education that prepares students to succeed in the global economy.



The BSc in Tourism and Catering and the MSc in Tourism Management programmes are accredited by the internationally recognised Institute of Hospitality, a prestigious organisation in the field of accreditation of hospitality and tourism programmes, supporting high quality training and lifelong learning. The Institute’s members are in all sectors of the industry and its’ accredited academic programmes can be found in all corners of the globe including Canada, many EU countries, UAE, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, New Zealand and Australia. 

CIPR the UK-based global professional body of PR professionals, has a thorough procedure for checking the content and delivery of academic programmes in relationship with public relations and communication. Our BA Communications and Media Science academic programme became the first academic programme in Central and Eastern Europe to be recognised by the CIPR, recognising the quality of the content and the delivery.

Current and prospective students of the BA Communications and Media Science programme of BBS FIMB, regardless whether they study in Hungarian or in English, can refer to this quality seal when applying for jobs in the field of communications and media worldwide, as an evidence of studying on a programme meeting the expectations of the profession and industry. Our students and graduates can become individual members of CIPR (subject to application fees / grades) and have access to a variety of benefits: professional materials, trainings, certification programmes, networking opportunities and professional events.
