There is great interest in Mexico (and elsewhere) in international forms of accreditation as institutions of higher education seek to improve quality, enhance reputations and create partnerships with US institutions that will promote student and graduate mobility.

How can Mexican institutions that are not internationally accredited improve their opportunities for partnerships?
