We are extending our congratulations to the University of Liverpool Management School, Liverpool, United Kingdom, and welcome the school to the pool of EQUIS accredited institutions.

Alfons Sauquet, Quality Services & EQUIS Director, said: “The school’s achievements in widening participation are particularly commendable. The institution is fully aligned with its founding mission and continues to create a palpable social impact.”

Beyond the commitment to social contribution, the University and School demonstrate that their pledge to being a “connected, global institution” with “world-wide influence and impact” is not coming at the expense of a contribution to the region.

The school also managed to develop a truly collegiate environment. Whether they are faculty, administrators, or students, individuals clearly feel empowered by the inclusive, transparent and equitable nature of the institution.

Julia Balogun, Dean of the University of Liverpool Management School, commented: “The University of Liverpool Management School is truly delighted to now have EQUIS accreditation. We feel this consolidates our position as an internationally recognised and globally connected management school, consistent with our vision. The EQUIS accreditation supports our future growth trajectory as we continue to develop our international reputation and reach.”

There are currently no substitutes for such an in-depth assessment of quality.

EQUIS has now accredited 187 schools across 44 countries. More information is available on efmdglobal.org/equis.
