Accreditation

For Business Schools, gaining and maintaining the prestigious 'triple accreditation' from AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS is a complicated and time-consuming task. Self-assessment reports (SAR) typically run to over 100 pages, comprising numerous chapters. Gathering the detailed evidence from many sources is difficult enough, but there is often a need for strict editing and checking of information. For example, to accomplish a consistent tone of voice, avoid too much repetition or ensure all guidance criteria have been addressed. This is where Kathryn's senior management experience and editing skills come into their own. Reporting and presenting strategic guidance to senior leadership teams and governors has equipped her with good judgment, an advanced analytic mind, methodical approach and outstanding communications skills. She can act as a 'critical friend', editing your SAR and providing impartial suggestions to improve content and identify any gaps in the submission.
