The Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS), awarded the official accreditation to the AUBiH this April. Due to ACICS’ demanding and rather rigorous standards in terms of quality of education, this accreditation is fully recognized by the United States Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).
In 100 years of existence, ACICS has accredited a number of renowned institutions of higher education in the United States and the rest of the world. Having been accredited in USA which enjoys a global prestige in higher education, AUBiH with campuses in Tuzla, Sarajevo and Banjaluka became the first and the only university out of the former republics of Yugoslavia and the rest of Southeast Europe recognized practically urbi et orbi.
Apart from the classical teaching system, the AUBiH has licensed and accredited education degrees of Distance Learning, so that students from all over the world can access online lectures and examinations via the latest electronic systems.
Getting U.S. accreditation has certainly been facilitated by the fact that the AUBiH is one of the universities in the region which, for many years now, has kept high quality of teaching combining the standard of higher education in both, Europe and the United States. It should be added that Turkey's State Agency for Higher Education (YOK) also licensed AUBiH diploma, thus "opening the door" for AUBiH to the ever growing market of education and employment in Eurasia.
Besides the distinctive quality of teaching in English, digitization of the university etc., AUBiH has pioneered in BiH so called “case study” method of instruction known world-wide as the one most adapted to the challenges of modern life. Moreover, despite the global economic crisis, AUBiH is continuously trying its best to offer tuition for new students adjusted to their real economic possibilities in order to provide necessary incentives for education and development in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the wider region of Western Balkans.
