International Accreditations as Drivers of Business School Quality Improvement
Bryant, Michael
Journal of Teaching in International Business, v24 n3-4 p155-167 2013
Business schools are under pressure to implement continuous improvement and quality assurance processes to remain competitive in a globalized higher education market. Drivers for quality improvement include external, environmental pressures, regulatory bodies such as governments, and, increasingly, voluntary accreditation agencies such as AACSB and EFMD. A case study based on French management schools is presented to demonstrate this impact, and globally, management education is shown to have benefited from specific accreditation standards. Future challenges include the risk of standardization and institutional isomorphism, research relevance and quality, and the consequences of globalization on accreditation criteria.
