The School of Management has been successful in its re-accreditation from EQUIS.
The European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) is the European Foundation for Management Development’s leading international system of quality assessment, improvement and accreditation of higher education institutions in management. Its fundamental objective is to raise the standard of management education worldwide.
EQUIS examines institutions as a whole. It assesses not just degree programmes but all the activities and sub-units of the institution, including research, e-learning units, executive education provision and community outreach.
Professor Richard Elliott, Dean of the School of Management said:
“We are very pleased to remain within this elite club of Business Schools and the award is testimony to the continued quality of the School’s output.”
