Why is Accreditation Important

In nearly every country, higher education is controlled and monitored by the national government, which promulgates higher education policy. As free markets, open frontiers, and individualism spread around the world, however, many nations are adapting their higher education systems to the more liberal, competitive and diverse. Today, higher education is emerging as a diverse, competitive, decentralized "system," with vibrant private and public sectors in which colleges and universities enjoy comparatively high autonomy. Accreditation is one of the major factors to monitor education quality behind this global trend. Accreditation reflects the comparative advantages of numerous and diverse institutions and methods of higher education, and respects their core values of autonomy, self-governance, scholarship, and the assurance of academic quality through peer review or accreditation.

Employers, parents, students, and others look to accrediting organizations for consistent and reliable information about educational institutions. There is no single model for providing information about education quality that is so important for public accountability. The accreditation from the Education Quality Accreditation Commission want to relate each educational institution own structure and procedures with an efficient way to guarantee their accountability
