Workshop: Beginning your journey towards AMBA Accreditation

How do we know that the higher education we provide today as Business Schools meets or exceeds the expectations of all stakeholders, including students, faculty, employers, regulatory agencies, and internationally recognised accreditation organisations like AMBA?

What polices, practices, procedures, and leadership concepts are in place to ensure that the academic institution is meeting all of its obligations relative to quality, or at least a plan that is clearly understood which states what activities need to be undertaken for continuous improvement and achieving high quality?

Answers to these key strategic questions will be provided during this dynamic and interactive three day workshop on Beginning the journey towards AMBA accreditation.

By using real-world examples based on the best practices and lessons learned from more than 500 academic institutions from throughout the world, delegates will explore and explain the essential elements and principles associated with academic quality and programmatic accreditation. All participants will be involved in developing clarity regarding their specific aims for quality, AMBA accreditation, and excellence in higher education.

Key topics for this workshop include:

  • Defining your institution’s mission, vision, and values
  • Leadership and strategic planning
  • AMBA accreditation principles
  • Quality assurance
  • Internationally recognised program and institutional accreditation
  • Student Learning – learning outcomes management and assessment
  • Preparing action plans

The recommended participants for this programme include individuals involved in activities related to quality assurance, both academic and operational, for higher education organisations. This should include programme managers, department chairs, deans, directors, and other key leaders who will be involved in the accreditation process.

Workshop learning objectives include:

  1. Understanding how assessment of educational courses and programs is used to achieve higher education goals, objectives, and learning outcomes.
