The Strategic Purposes and Significant Effects of Quality Assurance in German Higher Education: A Comparative Perspective
Tanaka, Masahiro
Higher Education Management and Policy, v18 n3 p140-159 2006
This paper attempts to explain how the German higher education system strategically used quality assurance, through the new system of accreditation, to offer globally recognisable degrees such as the Bachelor's (Bakkalaureaus) and Master's (Magister) degrees. We also discuss the types of effects that this strategy has produced on the current structure of the German higher education system. In order to strengthen this discussion, the fundamental impacts of quality-related funding on the system's structure are scrutinised.
