EFMD would like to warmly congratulate School of Management, National Taiwan University of Science and Technology and TUM School of Management, Technische Universität München which have been awarded EQUIS accreditation.

“We are delighted to welcome TUM School of Management into the community of EQUIS accredited schools. TUM School of Management is an excellent example of a profound strategic transformation into an internationally renowned institution. It is a true pleasure to congratulate on the success of a school who has moved up the quality improvement ladder, from having its Bachelor in Management and Technology programme accredited by EPAS (EFMD Programme Accreditation System) three years ago to achieving the leading international recognition for the whole institution,” commented Eric Cornuel, EFMD Director General & CEO.

Gunther Friedl, the Dean of TUM School of Management added: “Since we were founded 15 years ago, we have striven for excellence which is now confirmed by the EQUIS accreditation. In the last five years particularly, we have transformed our school into a strategically run and international competitive management school. The EFMD accreditation processes, first EPAS and now EQUIS, helped us to rethink and continuously improve processes and programmes at TUM School of Management. With our unique mission to research and teach on the interface of management and technology, we are confident to contribute strongly to the EQUIS community.”

“This journey has been a very valuable learning experience, for me personally, as well as for the entire School of Management and all its stakeholders. The process is great for internal improvement and offers excellent networking opportunities to learn from peer schools. By periodic and quality evaluation, we hope to create more positive impact on society,” commented Pin Luarn, the Dean at the NTUST School of Management.

“The School of Management at the National Taiwan University of Science and Technology is one of the leading business schools in Asia, with a distinctive expertise in areas of management that are closely aligned to technology and engineering. There is no doubt that its strong corporate connections and high-quality students will allow the School to continuously advance in the quality improvement process as part of the community of EQUIS accredited schools,” added Martin Schader, the EQUIS Director.

The list of re-accredited schools is available here.

EQUIS accreditation ensures a rigorous quality improvement process, benchmarking the School against a set of 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. EQUIS has now accredited 172 schools across 42 countries.
