Proof of recognition as a Higher Education Institution: Build Bright University was founded in the form of Faculty of Management and Law (FML) in year 2000. FML has the populous pool of overseas graduated professors and lecturers, mainly in developed countries such as Australia, USA, France, Canada, UK, and other European countries, who could effectively impress most public learners and researchers into the Faculty. The pool then formed an academic board of the Faculty which played important role in internal quality controlling process, developing, and reviewing the Faculty's curriculum and training programs that meet both local and international market and industry's needs.

This fast and dynamic growth has put FML in a very strong competitive position and in year 2002, FML has changed its institutional position from faculty to the university which offered multi-disciplinary courses to serve the interests of many kinds of learners and researchers. The university took the name as Build Bright University (BBU), publicly known as the university that builds bright knowledge and skills for all. With the country's strong growth in economy from both local and foreign investments during the following years together with the name as the best quality provider, BBU has experienced rapid development and expanded its popularity amongst the public throughout the country and the region.

Today the university has a reputation for its quality excellence in selected fields including Business administration and management, Languages, Information Technology, Tourism and Hospitality, Political Sciences, Law, and especially in Civil Engineering in which our graduates have landed in good jobs. The university has also been selected for inclusion in the list of universities that have achieved an outstanding performance in meeting the requirements of the "ACC (Accreditation Committee of Cambodia) Assessing Committee Plan" done by a pool of ACC assessors.

Internally, BBU has a strong working staff for the Quality Assurance Office and Foundation Year Department. In fact, Dr. Elenida and Ms. Chhim Ratha have attended the APQNâ??s Workshop and Conference 2 times in the past. One in February 2009 in Vietnam and the other one in March 2011 in Bangalore, India.
I have also attended APQNâ??s Conferences in Shanghai, China (March 2006) and Bangalore, India in (September 2006).

Moreover, BBU has around 30 internal assessors and 20 external assessors (external assessors who work for ACC). They all work very actively throughout the year in order to respond to the requirements of the ACC and to keep the reputation of the university as the best quality education provider in Cambodia.

At BBU, we often organize cascading workshops and run our annual conference to maintain our quality of education. We have always received very positive feedback from the Accreditation Committee of Cambodia (ACC).

In summary, BBU has tried our best to be very active in Quality Assurance. We hope by joining your network (Asia Pacific Quality Network), we will learn more on how to better our internal quality and stay in-line with our neighboring countries especially universities in APQNâ??s network in terms of quality education.
