Industry report executive summary

  1. 1. PACUCOA and the Accreditation of Philippine HEIs EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Higher education in Philippines is both highly diversified and pluralistic, whereprivate Catholic institutes, coexist with Protestant non-sectarian establishments alongwith public institutions due to the unique history of the Philippines. It was realized byvarious private educators in 1951 of the need of accreditation to enhance the quality ofeducation through a system of standards, continuous monitoring and implementation,and self assessment done on a voluntary basis. It was envisioned that throughaccreditation, appropriate guidance shall be provided to parents and students seekinghigher education. Also, this shall enable greater co-operation among higher educationinstitutions (HEIs). On this premise, PACUCOA was established to ensure qualityaccreditation for private non-sectarian HEI bodies. This report aims to look at the accreditation process and the benefits as providedby PACUCOA, and its impact on private HEIs as part of the Industry Programcommissioned at AIM. This report does an analysis of the current situation of theAccreditation process by studying the key macroeconomic drivers and the recent reformsand historical background on the Education system of Philippines. One of the keyobjectives is to meet the challenges of globalization and where strategies are especiallycomplex because of expansion of markets beyond national borders. Therefore, educationmust help individuals to perform tasks for which they were not originally trained, toprepare for a nonlinear path, to improve their team skills, to use informationindependently and, finally, to lay the basis of complex thinking linked to the realities ofglobalization and a knowledge-based economy. This report further traces the development of accreditation among HEIs inPhilippines and PACACUA’s relation with other bodies and international standards likeWashington and Bologna Accord. The key industry players for Higher Education, SWOTAnalysis and key success factors for Accreditation and quality improvement are discussed.Learning Team 5, MM 2011-B
