The Examinations Board at the EA – The Entrepreneurship Academy is the body that objectively and expertly determines whether or not a student meets the conditions set by the education and examinations regulations in relation to their knowledge, insight and skills required to obtain a degree.
It holds a fundamental role in monitoring the quality of the examinations, since it determines, in an objective and expert manner, whether or not a student meets the final attainment level of the BBA program. For this, their independence is essential and our Examinations Board operates independently from the management team.
All members hold high expertise on the content of our BBA program (understanding of the educational programme’s subject matter), on the assessment expertise (how to ensure quality) and on the legal and procedural aspects of how the assessment takes place.
