About the School
The School of Business and Economics is currently working towards AACSB accreditation (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, of which Loughborough University is a member), which will provide excellent opportunities for partnering with universities and institutions in the United States.
In addition Loughborough is among just 1% of business schools in the world to be EQUISaccredited (EQUIS stands for the European Quality Improvement System and is the leading international business school accreditation system worldwide). For more information about the School’s other international accreditations, please visit our Accreditations page.
International research forms an integral part of the School, where research of international importance is fundamental to our research ethos.
Exciting research collaborations between members of other academic institutions are on-going and include such countries as Australia, China, Germany, India, Iran, Malaysia, the Netherlands, Finland, Italy, New Zealand, Sweden, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Turkey, Russia, Spain and the United States.
Please refer to our Research pages for details on our international research activities.
