Santiago Iñiguez de Onzoño
- President and Dean, Instituto de Empresa, Spain
The accreditation of Instituto de Empresa by a respected international body like the Association of MBAs has brought numerous advantages with far-reaching implications. Self-evaluation brings the opportunity to obtain an unusually integral view of how your organisation works and where it is heading. Furthermore, it is a unique exercise in that it requires teamwork on an organisational scale, serving as an invaluable tool to measure real levels of progress in key areas. The aspirant school's own conclusions plus the observations of the Association's peer review team constitute a powerful combination that makes for continuous improvement and constantly higher standards.
As for the accreditation itself, reactions of candidates, students and recruiters make it clear that the Association's logo is seen as more than an accessory. It stands for a firm commitment to quality in management education, and it does so on an international scale.
