Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB)
AACSB accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in management education. It represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. Institutions that earn accreditation confirm their commitment to quality and continuous improvement through a rigorous and comprehensive peer review. Accreditation follows a rigorous process, which assesses all aspects of a School’s operations and activities including research, teaching and their contribution to the wider business community.
EFMD Quality Improvement System (EQUIS)
EQUIS is recognized as one of the top gauges of standards in management education in Europe and beyond, and is awarded by the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD). EQUIS accreditation demonstrates not only that the School’s activities are of a very high quality, but also that the School has a very strong international dimension. The EQUIS award is made after an assessment of the entire School, including its taught programs, executive education provision, innovation, marketing and interaction with the business world.
Business School Impact System (BSIS)
The Business School Impact System is the first comprehensive impact assessment tool for business schools. Launched in 2014, the BSIS framework provides 120 indicators to assess a school’s impact on the financial, economic, societal, and image aspects of the local environment. The BSIS process helps a school measure the tangible and intangible benefits that it brings to the local community.
