QED and Hardcastle & Associates announce strategic alliance

QED and Hardcastle & Associates are delighted to announce a strategic alliance, marking the growing relationship between these two higher education advisory firms.


This alliance marks a growing synergy between the services offered by the firms and creates opportunities to work jointly on projects for the benefit of our higher education clients. Joanne Hession of QED commented “QED has been working with higher level business schools across six continents for over 20 years – with a particular focus on international accreditation. A key part of many schools’ quality improvement strategy links to professional services, and this is an area where we believe our alliance with Hardcastle & Associates creates an opportunity to expand the expert resources and expertise for our clients”.


Speaking on behalf of Hardcastle and Associates, Sarah Hardcastle stated “We have long believed that it is the lens of accreditation that helps many business schools focus on the changes they need to make to be more successful and have greater positive impact. We are delighted to be able to draw on the considerable accreditation expertise of QED as part of our ethos to share knowledge, experience and networks with our clients.”
