EQUIS accreditation is the most comprehensive institutional accreditation system for business and management schools. It is acknowledged worldwide by potential students, faculty, employers, corporate clients and the media; often a pre-requisite for entry into the ranking system. EQUIS accreditation ensures rigorous quality control that benchmarks a school against international standards, in terms of governance, programmes, students, faculty, research, internationalization, ethics, responsibility and sustainability, as well as engagement with the world of practice.

EQUIS has now accredited 189 schools across 44 countries. More information is available on efmdglobal.org/equis.
