Event Details

We have designed this workshop as a virtual learning opportunity for School representatives before and after eligibility to engage with our EFMD Programme Accreditation experts and get hands-on learning experience through case discussion. There will be a heavy focus on teamwork and Q&A sessions, allowing each participant to ask any questions they may have regarding the accreditation process and to interact with their peers through breakout sessions.

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 is planned for June 18 and will be preceded by a mandatory briefing session on 4 June 2021. During the briefing, the experts will explain the format and required preparation, and the available working documents. Participants will already have the opportunity to meet and network before the workshop start. During the workshop 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 maximum of 30 participants to enable a better learning experience for you and to facilitate close interaction with the experts and other participants. Registration will be based on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to limited availability, only one representative per institution may initially register for the workshop. A second representative from the same institution wishing to participate will be placed on a waiting list and allowed to attend only if the 30 participant limit is not reached.

The workshop is for participants representing their academic institution only.
