Regulation from the dutch Government
The dutch government regulates and accredits regular bachelor education and academic education. Several entities have been set up to draw up the regulations and enforce them, for example by assessment panels. The Dutch-Flemish Accreditation Organization (NVAO) is the only organization recognized by the government and is responsible for guaranteeing the quality of the Dutch and Flemish higher education programs.
Post-HBO, bachelor, master and doctoral education in the form of post-master and post-bachelor education is not accredited by the government. In order for a study program to be accredited by the government, subsidies and college funds options must also exist. MBA programs and NIMA programs are also not accredited by the government. There are organizations active outside the government that grant certain MBA programs the status of accreditation.
Beeckestijn Business School has a CRKBO registration (Central Register of Short Vocational Education) from the government and is included in this central register. The quality audit for inclusion in this register was performed by Lloyds. This registration allows Beeckestijn to invoice its participants VAT-free (if desired).
