Internationalisation: Curtin Verhoeff Model (template)

Internationalisation: An approach to setting indicators of achievement

Internationalisation within higher education business schools is a mulit-dimensional concept. EFMD, within the EQUIS Standards, provides a framework for Schools to assess and measure internationalisation (Chapter 8 of the EQUIS Standards).  A model to further build on this framework has been devised by Helen Verhoeff at Curtin Business School (Australia) and, with her kind permission, this template is shared in this downloadable PDF file.

Please note, any use of this template framework should acknowledge the Curtin Verhoeff Model.

Links to the EQUIS Standards can be found here. (Link valid at 15/4/2024)

Accreditation Fees & Costs – April 2024

By | Resource

Accreditation Costs

There are several facets to the costs of accreditation:
  1. Payments made to the relevant accreditation bodies and comprise a mix of membership fees, accreditation fees and other expenses etc.  These are relatively fixed and easy to estimate (see link below).
  2. Staffing and advisory costs to support accreditation.  These are harder to estimate, and depend on several factors. For example:
    • Will there be an accreditation team with sufficient time and experience to manage the full accreditation process?
    • Are there additional faculty allowances given to accreditation?
    • Will the School require some external input, to support the internal resources?
  3. Investment Costs:  These vary hugely from school to school and naturally depend on each School’s strategic priorities.  Of course, strategic investment costs are not always linked to accreditation: Some strategic decisions will be made regardless of accreditation plans.  Others may only be made as a consequence of accreditation.

QED has listed the costs and fees associated with each of the accreditation bodies (#1 above), valid as of March 2024.  These can be viewed here.
