First ICAPA Accreditation

There are no tags

Logo_CIAPA_DEFAfter nearly a decade of analysis and deliberation, IASIA established the International Commission on Accreditation of Public Administration Education and Training Programs (ICAPA) in August, 2012. Chaired by Professor Allan Rosenbaum, a Past President of IASIA, the Commission is responsible for developing and initiating procedures for the accreditation of public administration education and training programs.

The Commission’s activities are based upon and build upon, a set of standards developed by a joint United Nations/IASIA task force which was initiated by the United Nations in 2005. This task force held hearings throughout the world and over 1,500 individuals participated in meetings that resulted in the development of the final report of the United Nations/IASIA Task Force on Standards of Excellence for Public Administration Education and Training.

ICAPA and IASIA are pleased to announce that the first programs which have gone through the international accreditation process have been granted full six year accreditation. These programs are the Professional Master’s in Public Administration of the Brazilian School of Public and Business Administration (EBAPE) in Rio de Janeiro and the professional Master’s in Public Administration program of The Business Administration School of São Paulo (EAESP). Both programs completed the ICAPA accreditation process earlier this fall.

The two schools, which are components of the Getulio Vargas Foundation (FGV), officially requested ICAPA accreditation and submitted their self-assessment reports. This was followed by a site visit carried out by a ICAPA team of experts. The site visit team submitted its final report to the Commission (ICAPA) which unanimously granted full six year accreditation to both the EBAPE and EAESP programs.
