Compliance with the Bologna Declaration

Recognizing the importance of the European and International dimensions in education, SMC underwent the process of adapting to the criteria of the Bologna Declaration, which regulates the standards and transferability of credits and degrees in Europe. SMC fully complies with the criteria set forth in this international convention.

Accredited degrees are recognized within learning institutions, colleges, and universities on an international scale. An accredited degree is however not a guarantee for enrollment and acceptance at other universities or businesses. Students are also advised to check with their local authorities on the recognition of the program and degree.
