QUALITY POLICY - UNDERGRADUATE STUDY PROGRAMME
The Department of Accounting and Finance in collaboration with the Office of Quality Assurance Unit (MODIP) and the relevant services of the Institution has harmonized the Quality Policy of the Undergraduate Program (PPS) with the Quality Policy of the University of Macedonia.
At the same time, the Quality Assurance Policy (PDP) of the Department of Accounting and Finance is shaped, changed, improved and adapted to the current conditions and requirements, and feedback is constantly received by the active participation of all members of the Department (teaching staff, students, administrative staff)
The PDP of the Department is drawn up to support, in general, the academic content and the scientific orientation of the Curriculum (PS) offered by the Department but to also continuously guarantee the high quality of the produced educational, scientific, research and academic work, in accordance with the international academic standards and good practices of the European Higher Education Area (EXAE) as well as in compliance with the principles of the Quality Assurance Authority (ADIP) and compliance with current legislation.
The charting of the PDP of the Department focuses on the promotion of the objective and the subject of the Curriculum (PS) as well as on the achievement of the strategic goals that are set each time, through procedures and actions, with the ultimate goal of their continuous development and improvement. A key component of the Department's PS is the PPS which reflects and highlights the basic scientific and academic identity of the Department.
