EQUIS Reaccreditation for 12 Leading Business Schools

EFMD would like to warmly congratulate the following schools who have recently been reaccredited by EQUIS: equis2013

“To be accredited for the 4th time by EQUIS and always for 5 years is a great success not only for EMLYON but also for EQUIS. Thanks to the evolution of the EQUIS criterias and the different recommendations made by the four peer reviewers, EMLYON has been and will be able to improve day after day its global quality. It is a masterpiece for the global education sector.”
Prof. Bernard Belletante, Dean, EMLYON Business School

"We are very proud of our third consecutive full re-accreditation for another period of five years. From our initial EQUIS accreditation in 1998, RSM has used accreditations to maintain and enhance the quality of its services – resulting in a triple crown status. Actually, the school itself was one of the 19 pioneer schools launching EQUIS and its subsequent accreditation procedures. We strive for excellence, and accreditations are certainly a means to help achieve this. Thank you EQUIS peer review team – and thank you RSM team that made this happen again!"
Prof. Dr. Steef van de Velde, Dean, Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University

"We are proud to achieve EQUIS 5-year reaccreditation for the third time  -- a strong endorsement that the management education offered by Nanyang Business School is of the highest international standards and an affirmation of our mission to nurture global leaders for a sustainable world."
Prof. Ravi Kumar, Dean, Nanyang Business School, Nanyang Technological University

"The UWA Business School is pleased to have gained EQUIS re-accreditation, confirming our place as a leading global business school. As part of UWA's drive to be in the world's top 50 universities by 2050, the UWA Business School is committed to attracting the best students and staff from around the world, and delivering the highest quality teaching and research. The UWA Business School's EQUIS re-accreditation reflects the hard work and dedication of all our staff, students and partners and is an affirmation of the many positive outcomes the School is achieving in business education."
Prof. Phil Dolan, Dean, Business School, The University of Western Australia

"We are delighted that EFMD, an esteemed international arbiter of quality, has awarded the Monash Business School EQUIS reaccreditation for five years. We would like to thank the peer review team for recognising our commitment to excellence in management development internationally through our research, education and service activities."
Prof. Colm Kearney, Dean, Faculty of Business and Economics, Monash University

“The reaccreditation of our Faculty by EQUIS for the next five years is a testimony to our continuous effort to promoting quality business education in Hong Kong and in Asia.  Our strengths are showcased through the rigorous process of reaccreditation assessment.  This worldwide recognition will further foster our strategic role as a leading business school and further instil in our potential students, employers as well as stakeholders that we are one of the number one choices for first-class education on business and economics.  I would like to thank the EQUIS Awarding Body, the Peer Review Team and many of our colleagues who have contributed to this success. The EQUIS reaccreditation has brought new insights to our Faculty and will help shape our strategy to move onwards and upwards.”
Prof. Eric Chang, Dean, Faculty of Business and Economics, The University of Hong Kong

“Aarhus BSS is very pleased with the decision and is looking forward to a  continued expansion of relationships and networks with other EQUIS accredited schools. Being part of such network has contributed to keeping us ahead of the needs and demands within management education and its future development.”
Prof. Svend Hylleberg, Dean, Aarhus University, School of Business and Social Sciences

Prof. Michael Osbaldeston, the EFMD Director of Quality Service added, "I would like to congratulate the schools that have gone through the reaccrediation process. If you are a student, parent, recruiter or have an interest in business education then the first and most important credential to look for in a school is does it have accreditation from EFMD."
