I first got acquainted with Joanne Hession in 2007 during an EPAS review in Eastern Europe where we served as Peer Reviewers. I was impressed by her extensive expertise on the main business school accreditation procedures.

QED carried out a Gap Analysis in order to help Surrey Business School assess where we stand with respect to a potential EQUIS accreditation. Within a short period of time, the team gained a superb overview of the School and the context in which we operate. Their many years of experience and their in-depth knowledge of the international business school landscape was evident throughout their work. They kept a professional and impartial perspective as expert advisors throughout the process. In addition to delivering a thorough and well-structured report, they also presented their findings to diverse audiences in the School, and in doing so, they struck exactly the right tone. Beyond the Gap Analysis process, they have always been available for advice, insight and information. I know I can lean on them with respect to all matters relating to accreditation and wider institutional development.
