School of Business and Economics amongst 1% of business schools worldwide to achieve triple accreditation

The School of Business and Economics has been awarded five years of accreditation by the European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS).

EQUIS is the worldwide leading system of quality assessment, improvement and accreditation of higher education institutions in business administration and management. The School was benchmarked against other institutions on a number of factors including their ethics, research, corporate engagement and internationalisation.

This puts the School amongst only 1% of other business schools across the world that has achieved a triple accreditation of EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA.

Professor Stewart Robinson, Dean of the School of Business and Economics said:

“We are delighted with the news that the School of Business and Economics has been reaccredited for five years. EQUIS accreditation is very important to us as an internationally minded business school, and we have worked consistently to improve the quality of our activity, which was first recognised by EQUIS in 2008.”

In addition to EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA accreditations, the School is also a proud signatory of the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) and holds a Small Business Charter award for its activities in entrepreneurship and SME engagement.
