Event Details

We have designed this workshop as a virtual learning opportunity for School representatives to engage with our EFMD Programme Accreditation experts and get hands-on learning experience through case discussion. The workshop is designed to cater for the needs of Schools whose programmes are yet to gain eligibility as well as those who have already done so and are preparing for their Peer Review Visit. Colleagues new to EFMD Programme Accreditation in Schools with a Programme that has already been accredited are also very welcome to participate. There will be a heavy focus on groupwork and Q&A sessions as well as on an external speaker who will share their experiences in programme accreditation. Participants will be encouraged to ask questions regarding the accreditation process and to interact with their peers and the speakers throughout.

The workshop consists of two modules:

  • One common core module for all participants that will cover EFMD Programme Accreditation process as well as the standards and criteria
  • Two parallel focused tracks: one for Schools in the Pre-eligibility stage and one for Schools in the Post-eligibility stage

The online workshop contains two sessions that are planned for 28 February and 15 March 2024. During the first session, the experts will explain the format, required preparation and the documents that will need to be considered in preparation for the second part of the workshop. The first session will also provide an overview of EFMD’s Programme Accreditation process and the Standards and Criteria. Participants will already have the opportunity to meet and network in small groups. During the second session, attendees will work with an actual Datasheet and Self-Assessment Report of an EFMD accredited school.

In this workshop you will learn how to:

  • Interpret and apply the Standards and Criteria
  • Navigate the key stages of the accreditation processes in the Pre-eligibility or in the Post-eligibility stage
  • Prepare a good Datasheet (for Schools in the Pre-eligibility) or a good SAR (for Schools in Post-eligibility)
  • Organise a Peer Review Visit focusing on the Visiting Schedule and the Base Room

This workshop is for you 

  • If you are in the early stages of the process or thinking about Programme Accreditation and trying to understand what it takes
  • If your School is eligible for EFMD Programme Accreditation and you are preparing an initial accreditation visit
  • If your School holds EFMD Programme Accreditation and you are preparing a re-accreditation visit
  • If you are new in your accreditation role

Keep in mind

We will admit a limited number of participants to facilitate the small-group learning experience and close interaction with the experts. Registration will be based on a first-come-first-served basis. Only one representative per institution may initially register. A second representative from the same institution wishing to participate will be placed on a waiting list and registered based on availability.
