Ulrich Hommel serves again as the Director of the EFMD Global’s Fall edition of the Quality Assurance Academy (QAA), a high-level training opportunity for quality assurance professionals in business schools. It is the third round following the inaugural (face-to-face) edition at Corvinus University in 2019 and the virtual second edition earlier in the year. For more information, click here.

The QAA 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.

The QAA design has been built around the needs of business schools, but professionals filling similar roles on the university level or in other faculties may find this program also attractive.
