The EFMD Quality Assurance Academy (QAA) enters its next edition in September of this year. This program has been designed and is directed by Ulrich Hommel, Founding Partner of XOLAS. He also facilitates the module on project management.

The QAA is a comprehensive training offer for business schools’ quality assurance professionals. It focuses on developing leadership competencies and managerial skills to meet the diverse professional challenges encountered daily in quality assurance/quality management (QA/QM) work in business schools. The QAA cuts across all major quality assurance frameworks to develop and refine the participants’ understanding of the underlying methodologies and their purpose. Therefore, it is seen as a general qualification opportunity rather than training to support a specific accreditation project.
