Worldwide Recognition for the Helsinki School of Economics

18.04.2007
The Helsinki School of Economics (HSE) was awarded AACSB accreditation on 12 April, 2007. This is another first for HSE, as no other Nordic business school has yet achieved the prestigious international accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). HSE Becomes the First Nordic Business School to Receive AACSB Accreditation.

The Helsinki School of Economics (HSE) was awarded AACSB accreditation on 12 April, 2007. This is another first for HSE, as no other Nordic business school has yet achieved the prestigious international accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). In the current round of accreditation, HSE was the only European School to be accredited alongside eight other business schools, six located in the United States, who met the strict demands of the internationally acclaimed standards organization.

AACSB accreditation is further proof to students, applicants, employees, partners, corporations and benefactors that HSE's educational programs and related services are truly world class. Preparing for and ensuring future compliance to the accreditation guidelines forms a solid base for internal discussion and improvement within HSE's university and partner networks. One key function of participating in the AACSB accreditation process, in line with the Finnish government’s top university-program, is guaranteeing the school's continuing development.

Triple international accreditation a notable achievement

Now also accredited by the AACSB, HSE has been tested by all three international standards organizations that certify business schools. The previous certifications are from the European EQUIS and the Association of MBAs. This third certification, often referred to as the ‘triple crown’ raises HSE into a category shared by only about 20 other universities, such as the London Business School and the HEC School of Management in Paris.

Demanding requirements for accreditation

Accreditation requires that each business school fulfil strict quality standards for leadership, success in meeting educational goals, and communication between staff and students. The standards must also be integrated into the school's mission statement. Compliance is judged by deans experienced with business education from other international business schools.

AACSB internationally respected

The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) was the world's first and is still the largest accreditation organization for business schools. Since its conception in 1916, accreditation has been awarded to 549 business schools in 31 countries. In addition, the organization supports educational improvement by organizing seminars around the world. Its headquarters are located in Tampa, FL (USA).

Im Focus: The pyrenoid is a carbon-fixing liquid droplet

Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.

Im Focus: Highly precise wiring in the Cerebral Cortex

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.

The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...

Im Focus: Ultrafast snapshots of relaxing electrons in solids

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!

When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...

Im Focus: Quantum Sensors Decipher Magnetic Ordering in a New Semiconducting Material

For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.

Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
