Using International Accreditation in Higher Education to Effect Changes in Organisational Culture: A Case Study from a Turkish University
Collins, Ian
Journal of Research in International Education, v14 n2 p141-154 Aug 2015
International accreditation is now a significant yet controversial issue in global higher education. This case study looked at the experience of an intensive English language preparatory programme within a university in Turkey going through an accreditation by a foreign institution, and assessed to what extent the project managed to foster changes in its organisational culture. While it was clear that most felt the accreditation had a significant impact, there was much less clear evidence of changes in organisational culture.
