“The prestigious five-year EQUIS accreditation is an affirmation of the world-class quality of IIMB -- the school, its processes and its programmes. Our interactions with EQUIS over the last six years have been invaluable on this journey,” said R. Srinivasan, Director of Indian Institute of Management Bangalore.
Gerard George, Dean of SMU LKCSB, said: “I am extremely proud that our School has received the EQUIS re-accreditation for 5 years. It demonstrates EFMD’s strong vote of confidence in the high international standards and excellent quality of our School’s faculty, programmes and research, as well as the strong network and deep engagement that we have with the business and academic fraternity.”
“The re-accreditation reaffirms the strong value proposition that we offer to all our students. It also firmly positions us in the ranks of leading business schools around the world, such as the London Business School and Judge Business School, Cambridge, in the United Kingdom; INSEAD in France; IE Business School in Spain; and IMD in Switzerland,” he added.
Pro-Vice Chancellor and Executive Dean of the University of Exeter Business School, David Allen said: “We are extremely pleased to have been granted the coveted 5 year accreditation from EFMD. This award certifies the quality of our institution and is testament to the talented and dedicated staff that makes this place an exceptional place to work and study. This accolade adds weight to the Schools plans as we enter the New Year with ambitious aspirations to build on our reputation as a world-class institution.”
Martin Schader, the EQUIS Director, added, “I would like to congratulate all the schools for a successful EQUIS reaccreditation. EQUIS accreditation ensures a rigorous quality improvement process, benchmarking the School against international standards in terms of governance, programmes, students, faculty, research, and foremost, internationalisation, ethics, responsibility and sustainability, as well as corporate engagement. There are currently no substitutes for such an in-depth assessment of quality and all the schools should be commended for their commitment to excellence.”
