AQAS is an independent and professional agency for external quality assurance in the field of higher education located in Cologne, Germany. AQAS was founded in 2002 and has since accredited more than 6,500 study programme, including numerous programmes outside Germany.

AQAS has audited in countries in four continents, e.g. Austria, France, Turkey and Moldova, Chile, Oman, Kazakhstan, Russia, as well as Ghana and Niger.

The accreditation will be held from March 2nd to March 6th, 2020. The agenda of the accreditation will be the discussions with the Senior Management of UPI, Faculty of Management, and teaching staffs of the four study programme of Faculty of Economics and Bussiness Education. The assessors also had a campus tour around UPI; to Isola Building, Islamic Tutorial Centre, University Medical Centre (Polyclinic), Laboratory School (Labschool), UPI Central Library, ICT Directorate, Sports Arena, UPI’s Education Museum, and tour to Faculty of Economics and Business Education A and B buildings.
