Quality Management

Starting with the concept of quality of Aalen University, the quality management of the Faculty Management and Business Science (FMBS) is understood as an interface between the central department for quality management and the study areas and study programmes of the Faculty.

The quality management of the FBMS combines the findings from the practical implementation for the central level during the exchange of these departments and thus allows an improved result verification of quality targets. Secondly, the quality management of the faculty supports the study areas and their study programmes in the consistent implementation of the necessary instruments.

Besides the already resistant consolidated interest of students, employees and professors (e.g. through the class speaker, meeting and student surveys) belongs the establishment and collaboration of an Industrial Advisory Council of the FBMS as an external evaluation committee (advisory council) to the mentioned sector. This allows both: cross-border study programme exchange with professional practice, as well as an effective organisation of these exchanges.

The consistent implementation of the necessary instruments is based on the successful quality assurance in the study programmes of the Faculty. In particular, a comprehensive best practice experience is available, which will allow to perform the tasks more efficiently, and will conserve the resources of the faculty at the same time. The faculty has been supporting the study programmes with the implementation of teacher evaluation, student surveys and external rankings (notably the CHE ranking), in which the concerned study programmes of the faculty have achieved excellent results in the past. 

Currently, the FBMS’s quality management is concerned with the execution of tasks in the ongoing system accreditation of Aalen University. The aim of all joint efforts is a clear-sighted adoption and development of quality standards in research and teaching to the constantly changing environmental conditions. All of this serves one single aim: to prepare our entrusted students adequately for the requirements of today's complex working world.
