The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) Accreditation Board has re-accredited Cranfield School of Management for a further period of five years.

The decision means that Cranfield maintains its position as one of the elite business schools worldwide to hold a triple accreditation from AACSB, AMBA (the Association of MBA) and EQUIS (The European Foundation for Management Development’s Quality Improvement System).

Professor David Oglethorpe, Pro-Vice-Chancellor and Dean of Cranfield School of Management said: “Retaining the AACSB accreditation is recognition of our excellence in leadership development, real-world focus, societal impact and extensive industry relationships. The dedication of our talented staff is integral to our success, and this achievement is testament to their hard work.”

The Accreditation Board was impressed with the successful development of the Mastership programmes, the well-aligned mission and aspiration of the School and the School’s engagement with industry partners and alumni.

AACSB accreditation is known worldwide as the longest-standing, most recognised form of specialised accreditation that an institution can earn.
