Bradford continues to be among world's best accredited by EQUIS


The University's School of Management has again achieved accreditation by the European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS), reaffirming the school's capacity to offer the highest standard of business education.

The has held the EQUIS accreditation since 2000 and has therefore retained its triple crown status which fewer than 90 Business Schools across the world have secured.

Zahir Irani, Dean of the Faculty of Management and Law at the University of Bradford said: “The School of Management is delighted to have been reaccredited with EQUIS for the 7th time. We look forward to remaining part of the EFMD family and in learning from and contributing to the Business and Management landscape”

To achieve EQUIS accreditation, schools must demonstrate academic distinction, close connections with the corporate world, and commitment to innovation in teaching and program design. Schools are also evaluated on their ability to create learning environments that promote leadership and entrepreneurial skills, as well as a sense of global responsibility.

EQUIS is one of the world’s three leading quality accreditations for higher education in business. Bradford is extremely proud to hold all three – The Triple Crown – including the Association of MBA’s (AMBA) and the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business AACSB, making it one of only 59 Business Schools in the world to have earned this crown.

EQUIS accreditation is run by the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD), a global non-profit promoting international business education. The awarding body consists of leaders from top universities and corporate executives.
