The Role of Quality Assurance in Higher Education Management: A Case Study of American College of Dubai, UAE
The purpose of this case study is to present the importance of quality assurance in improving the administration of higher education institution. We use the academic program re-accreditation of the Bachelor of Business Administration program (BBA) of American College of Dubai, UAE as a case study. We first present the quality assurance framework of United Arab Emirates- QF Emirates. We then demonstrate the alignment of our program to the specific requirements of QF Emirates. The key components to this alignment include learner experience, teaching effectiveness, quality management processes, and institution’s long-term goals, and strategy. Finally, we demonstrate the benefits of the re-licensure project to ACD.
