Warmest congratulations to Faculty of Behavioural, Management and Social Sciences, University of Twente, The Netherlands; MIB Trieste School of Management, Italy and Bristol Business School, the University of the West of England, United Kingdom for all having successfully completed the EPAS re-accreditation process.

Programme accreditation from EFMD is one of the most demanding yet effective ways to certify the quality of a programme in the field of business and management.

We are happy to announce that the quality of the following programmes was accredited:

The mission and core values of this programme are clear: innovation and the development of an entrepreneurial mindset. The varied curriculum helps students develop academic rigour alongside practical skills. The dedicated faculty members support students as they complete their capstone projects – culminating in academic experiences that demonstrate the maturity of graduates of this programme.

The reaccredited Master in Insurance and Risk Management enjoys a strong reputation in the insurance and financial industries. The programme is praised for its strong corporate focus and corporate involvement. Highly expert and engaged faculty members attract an international body of students, who further their personal and professional development during the programme.

The Bristol Business School provides state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities and enjoys good corporate connections and engagement. The high student satisfaction ratings only serve to confirm the high level of commitment from faculty and staff associated with this reaccredited programme.

Ray McDowell, Interim Dean, Faculty of Business and Law, commented: “We’re very gratified at Bristol Business School that our International Business programme meets the rigorous quality standards of the EPAS scheme. The continuous improvement expectations that underpin the scheme have focused our attention in ways that ensure we develop the programme to deliver increasing benefits to our students.”

Jens Tøndel, EPAS Director, commented on these recent success stories: “I would like to congratulate the institutions to have successfully gone through the thorough EPAS reaccreditation process and proven their commitment to ongoing advancement. Through EPAS, we are happy to offer strategic guidance for the quality improvement and future development of the schools’ programmes.”
