Wahlgrén and Hirsilä selected as EPAS reviewers

Director Asta Wahlgrén and Head of Department Matti Hirsilä have been selected as academic reviewers for EPAS peer review visits by the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD), which is an international expert organisation that assesses business education and develops management.

The EPAS assessment highlights the academic quality of education and its relevance to working life; the assessment is extremely holistic. Themes include strategy and management, pedagogy and teaching staff, the planning, implementation and results of education, and quality management.

EPAS Peer Review Teams include both academics and corporate members from different countries. 

EFMD is an international membership organisation, based in Brussels, Belgium. It has over 800 member organisations from academia, business, public service and consultancy in 81 countries.

JAMK´s International Business Degree Programme gained its first EPAS accreditation in 2012. The first accreditation was the first recognition of a bachelor-level programme at a university of applied sciences in Europe in the history of the EFMD. In 2015, the International Business Degree Programme gained the accreditation for the second time.
