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: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

Im Focus: Fraunhofer ISE Develops Highly Compact, High Frequency DC/DC Converter for Aviation

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
