Summary In studies investigating quality in higher education institutions, it is important that quality is defined and that quality perceptions are clearly revealed.  The purpose of this study is to determine the perceptions of Turkish academics in relation to their views about quality in higher education.

The measurement tool, 'Quality in Accounting Education Survey' which is developed by Watty (2006) and is based on thequality approach of Harvey & Green (1993) was used as a data collection instrument.  Research data was collected from interviews with 64 academics who are in Business Administration Departments of Economics and Administration Faculties of Gazi University, Ankara University, Hacettepe University and Middle East Technical University that are located in Ankara - the capital city of Turkey.  According to research findings, academics from universities in Turkey adopt the perception of quality as excellent/elistist.  This finding is in contrast to the views of academics in Australia who revealed a student-centered transformation perception of quality.
