“EPAS process is a very disciplined and structured process. Participation in the process by two of our programmes - Bachelor Studies in Finance and Master Studies in Finance - resulted in the improvement of the programmes, first of all, by strengthening corporate relationships, secondly, by identification of the factors driving the quality improvement, and thirdly, by the progress in the internationalisation of the programmes.”
Prof. Krzysztof Jajuga, Head of Bachelor and Master Studies, Faculty of Management, Computer Science and Finance, Wroclaw University of Economics, Poland
Prof. David Asch, Associate Director, Quality Services & EPAS Director, commented: “We are delighted to welcome two new Institutions from Poland and France into the EPAS community. Programme Accreditation from EFMD is one of the most effective ways to certify the quality of a programme in the field of business and management. The EPAS accreditation process involves an extensive self-assessment, a visit of an international peer review team and a very experienced jury evaluating the assessment and findings of the peer review team to determine whether the programme should be granted accreditation. Accreditation is about excellence and continuous quality improvement linked to the strategy, vision and leadership of the School. It is also forward looking and helps a School to set a quality agenda for the future.”
EPAS was launched in 2005 and in 10 years has had a considerable impact on the quality of business schools programmes all over the world. As of October 2015, 97 accredited programmes from 71 institutions across 31 countries have been awarded EPAS accreditation.
