Corvinus Business School became EQUIS accredited

Congratulations to Corvinus Business School at the Corvinus University of Budapest who has been EQUIS accredited!

The Corvinus Business School is regarded as the national leader in business education and research with a rich history of corporate connections. The school has recently been accredited by EQUIS – EFMD’s leading international system of quality assessment, improvement and accreditation of higher education institutions in management and business administration.

The institution has been continuously improving the quality of all its components: the faculty, staff, students and programmes; which has been recognized through the accreditation process. Martin Schader, Associate Director at EFMD Quality Services, explained: “It is evident that the school is led strategically and managed professionally. The school has made notable advances, culturally and academically, as evidenced by curriculum and programme development, programmes taught in English, German and Hungarian, enhanced quality and productivity, and progressive internationalisation.”

The school’s alumni and corporate connections are exceptional. The school can pride itself on the deep and long-standing engagement with the business community in Hungary, including global firms and multi-national businesses. This is furthermore reflected in the corporate relevance of its programmes.

Zita Zoltay Paprika, Dean of Corvinus Business School, commented on the recent accreditation: “Twelve years ago we have joined EFMD with a dream of becoming an EQUIS accredited business school. In the past decade, we have made significant progress by completing two successful EPAS programme accreditations. Recently our effort was acknowledged by an EQUIS ‘crown’. This achievement is the result of the fruitful cooperation of our fantastic academic and professional staff. Corvinus Business School has become the first Hungarian higher education institution globally recognized by EFMD. It’s a real honour to become a member of the EQUIS family.”

EQUIS is a rigorous tool to assess, certify and improve the School’s quality in ten key areas, including governance, programmes, students, faculty, research and, foremost, internationalisation, ethics, responsibility and sustainability as well as corporate engagement.
