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. As Dean of ESSCA she did some fruitful consulting work for me and we have continued to cooperate steadily through various EPAS consulting missions during which I have always admired her professionalism and the soundness of her judgment.

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.
