EFMD-Awards-EPAS Nottingham

EFMD would like to warmly congratulate 

Nottingham Business School, Nottingham Trent University, UK : BA (Hons) International Business who have recently been awarded EPAS accreditation.

Melanie Currie Head of Undergraduate Programmes at NBS said, "We are delighted to have achieved EPAS accreditation for our International Business Suite of Programmes, as the course team have carefully crafted the content, delivery and international aspects of this programme to offer an exceptional international experience for our students."

Baback Yazdani, Dean of NBS added, "The process of EPAS accreditation has been extremely valuable to the School and we are delighted to have achieved the 5 year accreditation which provides an excellent platform for us to build upon."

The EPAS process considers a wide range of programme aspects including:

  1. The market positioning of the programme nationally and internationally
  2. The strategic position of the programme within its institution
  3. The design process including assessment of stakeholder requirements – particularly students and employers
  4. The programme objectives and intended learning outcomes
  5. The curriculum content and delivery system
  6. The extent to which the programme has an international focus and a balance between academic and managerial dimensions
  7. The depth and rigour of the assessment processes (relative to the degree level of the programme)
  8. The quality of the student body and of the programme’s graduates
  9. The institution’s resources allocated to support the programme
  10. The appropriateness of the faculty that deliver the programme
  11. The quality of the alumni and their career progression

EPAS has established itself as EFMD's Programme Accreditation system, next to the well-known EQUIS system, EFMD’s institutional accreditation service.  The feedback from the market has been tremendously positive, which is clearly reflected by the EPAS numbers after only 7 years of regular operation. Currently we have 82 accredited programmes from 62 institutions in 27 countries. 26% of the total are (E)MBAs, 31% are Masters, 28% are Bachelors, 2% are Doctoral Programmes and 12% are non-Bologna country-specific programmes.
