Accreditation Forum 2018

View full event details and booking page



Book your place today for our next annual Accreditation Forum on 27 - 28 September, taking place in France's "Capital of the Alps", Grenoble. Over two days, accreditation professionals will come together to hear from our accreditation team of experts and external speakers who will present on the accreditation process and criteria.

Our guest speakers, including AMBA's Academic Consultant Professor Mark Oakley, will also share their experiences of, and answer questions about, the challenges they've faced in their own accreditation journeys and the solutions they’ve discovered. This means you will gain detailed insight and insider advice about everything in relation to accreditation.

A series of informative sessions will cover topics including:

  • the structure of the accreditation process,
  • what it takes to make an accreditation submission successful,
  • the best ways to gather data and write reports, and
  • case studies of best practices in this area.

By the end of the forum, you will have all the information necessary in order to apply for accreditation or re-accreditation and to make sure your School is ready for the accreditation assessment visit. You’ll go away with not only a sense of greater knowledge, but also an improved network.

While we put together the programme for this year, you can still view the 2017 programme. Just follow the link below:
