Denmark’s internationally respected Copenhagen Business School (CBS) is working towards Advance HE accreditation for its staff development programme – the Assistant Professor Programme.
Accreditation will mean that the CBS will be able to confer Fellowship on successful participants of that programme. CBS is an Access Member of Advance HE and has already supported a number of its staff in their Fellowship applications. To date it already has seven Fellows.
Advance HE is now supporting the CBS with meeting the requirements of Advance HE accreditation and the development of an action plan to achieve this.
Jacob Ravn, Director, Teaching and Learning at CBS, said, “We have been exploring Fellowship as a means to reward and recognise teaching excellence as well enhancing a mind-set of continuous professional development in teaching.
“Fellowship, underpinned by the Professional Standards Framework, works really well for us as a robust and internationally recognised model. We’re looking forward to achieving the next step and being able to confer Fellowship through our own programme.”
Ian Hall said, “We’re delighted to be working with CBS. It’s fantastic to see the commitment of the staff who have already achieved Fellowship and of those working towards submitting their development programme for accreditation. We’re very excited about this work coming to fruition.”
CBS is Denmark’s largest educational and research institution within business administration and economics in a wide sense. The University is committed to providing business-related education programmes and continuing education for the public and, in particular, the private sector.
Programmes are based on a strong and internationally renowned research base which CBS works consistently to strengthen. CBS has a Center of Excellence, funded by the Danish National Research Foundation, and has received five European Research Council Grants.
