Abstract
From 2004 to 2007 period the Corvinus University of Budapest has developed and introduced a modern and consistent quality assurance system. The new model takes the concepts of the TQM and EFQM as its foundation. An essential part of the system is inquiry of the opinions of staff members, students, institutions and individuals with external relations, and regular feedback based on these results. In the 2007/2008 academic year the CUB participated in two external accreditation/evaluation programmes. The institutional accreditation by the Hungarian Accreditation Committee took place (conducted every 8 years), and in 2007 the CUB applied for an institutional evaluation by the European University Association. The aims, legal status and central points of the two evaluations are different from each other. The statements prepared through the two types of processes arrived to similar conclusions on several issues. The proposals compliment each other and emphasise various viewpoints.
