The business world is changing rapidly, and as organisations are adapting to an economic age of unlimited potential, Business Schools must ensure they can keep delivering the required talent to fuel the future economy.
BGA’s educational membership is centred around giving Business Schools the tools to succeed by offering cutting-edge consultancy and mentorship services that use the principles of BGA’s Charter.
Our tools and services available to BGA member Schools have been structured and tailored to help Schools gain a competitive advantage and a leading edge to help serve their core markets of students and employers. This is achieved by supporting continuous improvement, impact on individuals and society, and the ongoing teaching of responsible management.
Our benefits are focused on:
• Institutional development
• Networking and international collaboration
• Exposure and awareness
Details of BGA member School benefits can be found in our membership brochure, which is easily downloadable, just click the brochure download button.
The Charter is comprised of BGA’s nine key principles, deemed as necessary for Business Schools to meet the demands of the future economy. Inspired by the UN’s principles for responsible management and external employer needs, the Charter forms the ecosystem that houses all the guiding principles used in the BGA validation and accreditation processes. Every Business School that joins BGA will be required to show a commitment to meeting the spirits of the Charter.
BGA’s membership will provide you with access to an array of quality improvement services designed to further enhance Business Schools. These services include desktop reviews that highlight strengths and weaknesses in Business School programmes, benchmarking data for effective comparison, mentorship from leading Business School professionals, and practical online and onsite development workshops.
Few accreditation and membership organisations bring influential business leaders, high profile partners, and Business School professionals together. BGA combines a wealth of input guidance and thought leadership from leaders such as Indra Nooyi, outgoing CEO of PepsiCo and Peter Tufano, Dean of Saïd Business School.
Having the opportunity to network with fellow Business School professionals and peers from across the world is vital for developing partnerships and learning from each other. BGA believes that the most effective networking takes place when people have stories to share. That’s why we pick both exciting and inspiring locations to host our events, and we balance workshop sessions with tours and social dinners to foster authentic engagement between professionals.
No other Business School accreditation and membership agency offers free membership to students and graduates. Business Schools who become members of BGA will unlock complimentary membership for their current students. Students receive services to nurture and enhance professional development and responsible management, as well as events and online networking and a raft of lifestyle perks.
Business Schools that become members of BGA will receive access to BGA’s validation and accreditation services, both designed, based on detailed methodology, to enhance institutions’ quality by putting in place a Continuous Impact Model with a focus on the impact on students, graduates, employers and society.
