EOCCS Certification Board

The EOCCS Certification Board is composed of academic and corporate representatives of high profile organisations that are stakeholders in the quality improvement of management education. It evaluates the Review Panel Reports on online courses that are being put forward for certification, and based on recommendations made in the reports, makes the final decision to confer EOCCS certification upon those business and management online courses that have demonstrated excellence at an international level. The Certification Board normally meets four times a year.
