University of Bradford School of Management is part of an elite group of business schools worldwide with the triple-crown of accreditations - AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS.
Our School of Management MBA courses have been endorsed by the NHS Leadership Academy to deliver the NHS Master's in Business Administration (MBA) programme, as announced in a speech by the Secretary of State in 2016.
AACSB Accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide.
Less than 5% of the world's 13,000 business programs have earned AACSB Accreditation.
AACSB-accredited schools produce graduates that are highly skilled and more desirable to employers than other non-accredited schools.
We were among the first business schools in the UK to receive portfolio accreditation for all our MBA programmes (including full-time, executive part-time and distance-learning MBAs) from AMBA (Association of MBAs).
All our Management MSc programmes are among the relatively small number of programmes to have received pre-experience master's in general management (PEMM) accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA).
We have the prestigious EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System) - the leading international system of quality assessment, improvement, and accreditation of higher education institutions in management and business administration, run by the European Foundation for Management Development.
The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), the leading UK professional body for HR specialists, accredits our BSC (Hons) and MSc Human Resource Management programmes, in recognition of them meeting rigorous academic and professional standards. Our programmes provide the underpinning knowledge required to achieve professional levels of CIPD membership.
The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) accredit our MSc in Finance and Investment, our MSc in Financial Management, our BSc in Accounting and Finance, our BSc in Economics and our BSc in Financial Economics. This means that, by successfully completing your degree, you are eligible for exemptions from some ACCA fundamental level examinations.
