About EFMD Programme Accreditation

EFMD Accredited is a comprehensive programme accreditation system for business and/or management degrees and courses, including face-to-face, blended and online provisions. It constitutes a benchmark for what is considered an internationally recognised and peer-reviewed programme.

Key values of the programme accreditation:

  • Respect for diversity: We believe in and respect different models of business programmes and business schools in our assessment and accreditation system.
  • An international dimension: We believe in the international dimension of business programmes. Programme content, teaching materials, delivery methods (including virtual interactions), together with international partnerships, and the diverse backgrounds of faculty and students alike, can all contribute to the students’ international learning experience.
  • Responsible management: We believe in the importance of ethics, sustainability and responsibility. Different elements should be embedded in each programme’s policies, operations, teaching and research.
  • Connections with practice: We believe in the practical relevance of programmes and look for practice-based learning experiences for students through project work, internships and the like. On top of that, the relevance of business programmes is illustrated and facilitated by the involvement of senior management and professional practitioners in governance structures, programme development, delivery and research endeavours.

The accreditation covers all facets of programme provision: from its institutional, national and international environment, through its design, delivery, outcomes and impacts, to its quality assurance processes.

EFMD Programme Accreditation helps schools strive for excellence in an ongoing improvement process following each accreditation or re-accreditation visit.
