MAB and ARACIS reach cooperation agreement.


On 15 December 2021, the Presidents of the Hungarian Accreditation Agency (MAB) and the Romanian Agency for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ARACIS) signed a Memorandum of Cooperation between the two organizations.

The agreement will promote quality higher education in Romania and Hungary and further develop the existing cooperative relations between the two quality assurance agencies. In the future, MAB and ARACIS will participate in joint projects, organize professional exchange programs, publish in each other’s publications and support each other’s work through the regular exchange of experience.
