MDH's degree-awarding powers in Economics secured

Oct 14, 2013 | Education

MDH's Bachelor's degree programme in Economics maintains a high quality and the degree-awarding powers are thereby secured, according to a new assessment by the Swedish Higher Education Authority, UKÄ.

Up to the turn of the year 2013-2014 the UKÄ is evaluating the quality of all higher education programmes leading up to a degree. The programmes receiving an assessment of deficient quality will be followed up after one year, after which the University has the opportunity of presenting the measures taken to remedy the deficiencies.

MDH's Bachelor's degree programme in Economics received the assessment of deficient quality a year ago. Examples of the measures MDH has taken during the year were to increase the number of laboratory hours and digital exercises, created better contacts between teachers and students, and also reviewed the examination components.

MDH has now received the positive news that these measures render high quality status to the programme.

- It's very pleasing to see that the work MDH has done during the past year to secure high quality of the programme has been rewarded. It's of the greatest importance to MDH that all our programmes maintain high quality, says Vice-Chancellor Karin Röding.
