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: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...

Im Focus: Quantum-physical Model System

Computer-assisted methods aid Heidelberg physicists in reproducing experiment with ultracold atoms

Two researchers at Heidelberg University have developed a model system that enables a better understanding of the processes in a quantum-physical experiment...

Im Focus: Glacier bacteria’s contribution to carbon cycling

Glaciers might seem rather inhospitable environments. However, they are home to a diverse and vibrant microbial community. It’s becoming increasingly clear that they play a bigger role in the carbon cycle than previously thought.

A new study, now published in the journal Nature Geoscience, shows how microbial communities in melting glaciers contribute to the Earth’s carbon cycle, a...
