EMPLIOS is an international accreditation and auditing organization for higher education institutions. We evaluate an institutions' methodology dedicated to improving student employability and preparing them for their chosen career.
Employability is at the heart of our accreditation, as it should also be the main objective of Higher Education: to prepare students to begin and maintain their chosen career in the best conditions.
We created our methodology alongside a wide range of businesses (entrepreneurs, SMEs, and large companies) to identify the job markets' most in-demand skills and talents. We've created a 360º dynamic evaluation model that considers both qualitative and quantitative factors spanning over 500 criteria. This thorough audit allows us to judge the effectiveness of the pedagogical methods that directly affect a student's employability. We divide them into ten standards.
We audit degree-granting institutions at the Masters level or higher. Every audited institution receives an "EMPLIOScore" on a reference scale.
EMPLIOS only accredits the institutions with the highest standards of professionalization (scored A, AA or AAA)
