EQUIS – EFMD Quality Improvement System – is the leading international system of quality assessment, improvement and accreditation of higher education institutions in management and business administration. EQUIS has established its prestige and recognition worldwide and has accredited the top 1% – 187 schools across 44 countries– since its launch in 1997.
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 connections with practice. 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.
