In the aims to provide high quality of academic programmes at GSB which has an international perspective, GSB had become a full member of ABEST21 (The Alliance on Business Education and Scholarship for Tomorrow, a 21st Century organization) since 2011.
On 8th March, 2014, GSB has been granted the accreditation status of ABEST21 for its MBA programme. ABEST21 also recognized GSB as a business school with the excellence in practice of sustainable learning and interdisciplinary teaching.
ABEST21 was established as a non-profit organisation on July 1, 2005, and recognised as a business accreditation agency for business schools by Japan's Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) on October 12, 2007. To date, the number of member institutions and the number of represented countries have more than doubled, with ABEST21 membership now comprising 76 business schools and 6 companies from 18 different countries.
The mission of ABEST21 is to advance management education of business schools on a global basis by encouraging mutual cooperation among its member institutions. The mission can be accomplished through the following goals:
- 1. Sharing the information on curricular and teaching materials between the member institutions.
- 2. Promoting joint research projects, joint courses, international symposium and global classroom opportunities.
- 3. Providing advice and coordination for the member institutions in the research activities and encouraging the members to continually strive to advance the global business education.
- 4. Facilitating the continuous improvement of the business education through accreditation.
BENEFITS OF BEING A MEMBER OF ABEST21
In an age of globalisation and increasing rates of change, particularly in information and communication technologies, the demands on educational resources has never been greater. No single institution can recruit, develop or retain all the required resources to cover every aspect of management education. As such, business schools are challenged as never before to develop and maintain first-class management programmes. This is the reason ABEST21 envisage a Global Knowledge Network of business schools dedicated to the sharing of knowledge and skills, the development and application of new technologies, and the advancement of management theory and practice. By sharing the diverse strengths of all ABEST21 members, it is hoped that synergies are created which can significantly improve the quality of management education at every member institution.
