Become an accredited business school

We believe that MBA, DBA and Master's Degree programmes must maintain the highest quality and also be current with changing trends and innovation in all industry sectors. This is why unlike other accreditation bodies, like AACSB and EQUIS we accredit the programmes directly.

We work with business schools to accredit MBA, DBA and Master's Degree programmes globally, against defined criteria and include input from a variety of stakeholders including business school staff, students, graduates and employers. Accredited programmes are reviewed at least every five years to ensure that quality and improvements are continuous.
