Today’s rapidly evolving business environment requires Business Schools to be agile and innovative. With BGA membership, Business Schools receive some of the most sought-after advice, mentoring, and resources to enhance and develop the quality of their institution, promote uncompromising values of social responsibility, and be at the forefront of innovative education.
Whether your Business School is on the path to becoming a validated or fully accredited Business School, or simply is looking to further enhance its programmes, BGA’s Bronze membership comes packed with benefits to help your realise your Business School’s potential.
A desktop review is an evaluation of a select aspect of your Business School, such as your current marketing and admissions strategy, or a current undergraduate programme. It thoroughly reviews everything against BGA’s Charter principles, best industry practice, and industry trends, and comes with specific recommendations on what your Business School can do to improve against each criteria. Following the completion of a desktop review, members can schedule a video or phone call with a BGA representative to follow up with comments on how to achieve the recommended changes.
Our desktop reviews are handled directly by our academic consultants who carry decades of experience consulting and accrediting Business Schools around the world.
With an added fee, Business Schools can leverage a unique network of mentors, all current or former deans, at well-established institutions. The mentorship programme can be started after completion of a desktop review, which highlights areas of needed improvement. The mentorship programme allows Business Schools to:
1) Learn from experienced and highly-qualified Business School professionals who can share their knowledge on how to further your Business School’s ambitions
2) Develop new skills and acquire valuable information for faculty and staff
3) Establish a 12-month strategic plan with the help of the mentor
4) Expand their networks by connecting to the mentor and any other relevant parties
The webinars, presented by thought-leading educational and business professionals from around the world, focus on how the Business School can enhance its strategy in several areas such as marketing and recruitment of students, building supportive and powerful alumni networks, and incorporating groundbreaking teaching methods.
Webinars run on a monthly basis and are available to all your faculty and professional staff. And don’t worry if you miss a webinar, all of them are archived in the exclusive membership portal and can be accessed any time.
