MAB

The Hungarian Accreditation Committee is a national-level, independent body of experts tasked with the external evaluation of the quality of educational and related research activities and the internal quality assurance (QA) systems of higher education institutions in Hungary. It operates within the scope of the Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG). The Board is comprised of 20 higher education experts, students and external stakeholders and is the highest decision-making board. It determines the by-laws, rules of procedure, organisational framework and evaluation and accreditation criteria and procedures, and passes resolutions on accreditation decisions. Expert committees and a Secretariat contribute to its operations.

In addition, the MAB has two statutory boards, a Financial Supervisory Board and a Board of Appeals. The latter board of three independent members handles appeals against the MAB’s decisions and, in line with internal regulations, may deal with complaints against procedures. An International Advisory Board provides guidance and recommendations for the MAB’s work.

The MAB scope of activities extends to

  • initial (ex ante) accreditation of new institutions
  • initial evaluation of education and learning outcome framework requirements of Vocational Education and Training (VET) programmes
  • initial evaluation of education and learning outcome framework requirements of Bachelor programmes;
  • initial evaluation of education and learning outcome framework requirements of Master programmes;
  • initial accreditation of VET programmes;
  • initial accreditation of Bachelor programmes;
  • initial accreditation of Master programmes;
  • initial accreditation of new doctoral schools at universities;
  • accreditation (ex post) of institutions in five-year cycles;
  • accreditation of doctoral schools in maximum five-year cycles.

The MAB may evaluate running Bachelor and Master programmes if requested by an institution or the ministry. Additionally, it evaluates applications for awarding university professor positions.

The National Higher Education Act of 2011, lists some 70 higher education institutions operating in Hungary. In order to receive state recognition and to issue degrees, all higher education institutions, including private ones, must be accredited. Denominational higher education institutions receive state financing similar to state institutions and are accredited but the MAB’s mandate pertains only to secular programmes. Foreign higher education institutions are also required to be evaluated in order to receive license to operate from the Educational Authority of the Ministry of National Resources. A precondition is that they are legally recognized as HEI in their home country.

Mission statement

The Hungarian Accreditation Committee is a national expert board for monitoring, safeguarding and evaluating the quality of teaching, scientific research and artistic activities in higher education.

Its key task is to provide evaluation services to facilitate high standards of learning in Hungarian higher education institutions and to promote quality assurance to support all levels of education and all stakeholders involved. The MAB works in line with the laws relevant to higher education, performs the tasks assigned to it, meets the ESG 2015 criteria and proceeds in line with the objective, complex and modern guidelines developed by its disciplinary committees and the MAB Board. Through its activities, the MAB promotes the independence of operations. It applies, develops and/or adapts assessment methodologies conforming to international standards. The MAB’s work as an expert, accreditor, analyst and submitter of proposals follows the values specified in the international standards, is based on objective criteria and is independent, unbiased and free from politics. Through all of its activities, the MAB endeavours to solidify the quality culture of higher education institutions in order to improve the standards of Hungarian higher education and strengthen its international reputation.

Throughout its processes, the MAB consistently applies the ESG quality assurance criteria and adheres to the values adopted by ENQA and reflected in the MAB Strategy

(1) Transparency: the MAB makes the principles underlying its decisions and analyses public, and publishes its position statements as well as the criteria used in its decision-making and analysis.

(2) Independence: autonomy in its operations ensures and facilitates the high standards and recognition of the work performed by the MAB, while its independence as an organisation guarantees respect and support for the autonomy of higher education institutions.

(3) Cooperation: the MAB regularly consults higher education stakeholders and works with higher education bodies, peer agencies in quality assurance and reputable international quality assurance organisations.

(4) Integrity: the MAB acts in an irreproachable, fair, unbiased, objective and professional manner at all times.

Key goals:

  • To protect all stakeholders in higher education with regard to quality.
  • To support the improvement of quality standards in higher education.
  • To report on the quality of higher education to the government and to Hungarian society.

The MAB performs quality certification services by assessing whether an institution or programme meets the quality criteria specified and published by the MAB in advance. The MAB will grant accreditation to an institution or programme if it meets these criteria. The core activity of the MAB is therefore the accreditation of institutions.

Additional tasks include the evaluation of university professor applications, commenting on the doctoral and habilitation policies of institutions, and formulating opinions on various issues concerning the quality of higher education.

  • Standards and guidelines for quality assurance in the European Higher Education Area

The MAB has been in numerous international events and organisations in quality assurance in higher education, and upholds extensive connections with individuals and organisations involved in international quality assurance. As part of its work in this area, the MAB contributed to the development of various quality assurance principles of the Bologna Process, including the ESG (Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance in the European Higher Education Area).

MAB has been a member of ENQA (European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education) since its establishment in 2002. Since 2008 the MAB undergoes an evaluation coordinated by ENQA to assess its compliance with the ESG as a condition of membership. The president, secretary general and staff members of the MAB regularly attend the General Assembly of ENQA, held every 6 months, and its various forums and seminars, thereby contributing to to the evolution of quality assurance in the European Higher Education Area.

Staff members of the MAB have been elected to the ENQA Board on various occasions, and have also participated in the evaluation of quality assurance agencies in other countries. Based on its compliance with the ESG, the MAB applied for listing in EQAR (European Quality Assurance Register) and has been in the Register since 2018.

The MAB was a founding member of CEENQA (Central and Eastern European Network of Quality Assurance Agencies in Higher Education), the Secretariat of which operated out of the MAB until 2016.

The MAB has also been an active participant in the institution evaluation programmes (IEP) of the EUA (European University Association). It has been involved in the work of its Board from time to time, and a MAB employee is regularly invited to be on its international visiting panel.
