Not only in its programmes but also in all other activities, the school puts a strong emphasis on topics of ethics, sustainability and responsibility.

“The School is very pleased to receive this re-accreditation. The EQUIS process provides us with an opportunity to benchmark against the highest international standards. That’s something that our students, alumni and employers value very highly,” commented Edward J. Snape, Dean of the School of Business, Hong Kong Baptist University.

The Director of Quality Services and EQUIS, David Asch, said: “Congratulations to all the successfully re-accredited schools. They continue in their vision of providing high-quality education and research in the continuously changing environment.”

“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.”
