Renewed EQUIS accreditation for the School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg

News: Dec 19, 2017

The School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg has been awarded a five year re-accreditation by EQUIS. The EQUIS accreditation is a prestigious international quality stamp that the School of Business, Economics and Law has had since 2004, with re-accreditations in 2009, 2014 and now again in 2017. Over the years, the requirements for accreditation have continued to increase. Today, there are approximately 150 EQUIS accredited business schools in the world.

The evaluators' overall assessment of the School is ”a high quality institution of education and research, positively impacting business and society within Sweden and around the world.”

“It is an honour to have been awarded re-accreditation for a further five years, it is a proof that the School maintains a high quality in an international perspective" says Per Cramér, Dean of the School of Business, Economics and Law. "Being accredited means that we can compete for the best students and researchers in the international arena, and is a prerequisite to collaborate with high-quality business schools around the world."

The accreditation ensures a rigorous quality improvement process, benchmarking the School against a set of international standards within all dimensions of the School, and foremost, internationalization, sustainability as well as engagement with the surrounding society.

The School of Business, Economics and Law is also accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and the Association of MBAs (AMBA) and thus one of about 75 business schools in the world - and the only one in Sweden - which is what is commonly called "tripel crown" accredited.

EQUIS is run by the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD), an independent, non-profit-making network organisation open to both corporations and universities.
