Accreditation

EQUIS

The Faculty of Business and Economics is fully accredited by the European Quality Information System (EQUIS).

EQUIS is the leading international quality assessment, improvement and accreditation system for higher education institutions in management and business administration. Its fundamental objective, which is linked with the mission of the European Foundation for Management Development, is to raise the standard of management education worldwide.

Rather than focus on MBA or any other specific programmes, EQUIS is broad in scope, covering all programmes offered by a given institution, from first degree to PhD. Recognised worldwide, EQUIS has accredited 82 institutions in 28 countries in its first seven years of existence.

AACSB

The Faculty of Business and Economics is also accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International, an association of educational institutions, businesses and other organisations devoted to the advancement of higher education in management. It is also the premier accrediting agency for collegiate business schools and accounting programmes worldwide.

It is important to note that not all members of AACSB International have achieved accreditation. Only those that have been found to satisfy its accreditation standards are permitted to identify themselves as Accredited Members, a distinction that fewer than five of the world’s business schools have achieved.

Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS) Membership

Membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is the highest recognition a business student anywhere in the world can receive in a business programme accredited by AACSB International.
