EFMD + RimaOne_QAA

The currently daunting times press all types of institutions to rethink their modes of operation and even their strategies.

Strategy is closely interlinked with an institution’s quality assurance processes and its accreditation journey. Each school is led by its distinct mission and vision differing across regions and the markets it caters to, while the ultimate goal is to consolidate the different variables into a coherent narrative driven by the underlying factor of quality.

When launching the Quality Assurance Academy (QAA) last year – an EFMD GN programme held in partnership with RimaOne – we were building on this very premise: How to manage quality in its multiple dimensions across a wide range of activities within a business school?

This year, we are launching a virtual series of moderated discussions building on expert knowledge, best practice cases and common topics viewed through the prism of quality assurance – strategy, accreditations, leadership, data analytics, effectiveness of learning and teaching in an evolving world, report writing skills and others.

Today, the aspect of quality is expanding further and will undoubtedly include additional provisions such as preparedness of an institution and its operational continuity in times like these.

Are you ready to join us alongside the experts and get involved in peer learning, discussions and to build a community of peers?
