EFMD Deans Across Frontiers (EDAF)
EFMD Deans Across Frontiers (EDAF) aims to assist Business Schools to develop further through mentoring of the institution’s Senior Management Team.
As with the accreditation systems (EQUIS and EPAS), the school will undergo a Self-Assessment and Peer Advisory Process. Following the assessment by the Peer Advisory Team, the School will benefit for a three-year period of mentoring by an experienced former Dean and will progress towards defined development objectives.
The EFMD will assure the effectiveness of the process through systematic progress tracking. It is expected that some funding will be available for participating schools that cannot afford to cover all the costs of this service.
EDAF is a further endeavor of EFMD to raise the standard of management education worldwide. It is not only targeted at the very best Business Schools of the world but also at Business Schools in the early stages of quality development both in developed and developing countries.
Since EFMD possesses a network of recently retired deans or associate deans who now have more time available to pass on their accumulated wisdom where needed, they could be mobilised as deans willing to work across frontiers in support of this project (EDAF).
The EDAF system is offered by EFMD and run through its Quality Services Department as a quality improvement system complementary to its EQUIS and EPAS accreditation systems. However, it should be underlined that EDAF is not an accreditation but a mentoring system.
The first School that successfully completed the EDAF evaluation stage and entered the mentoring process is the Colleges of Business Administration - University of Business and Technology, Jeddah, Saudi-Arabia.
We congratulate CBA-UBT on their commitment to institutional quality development.
