The European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) Accreditation Board has voted to confer the EQUIS Accreditation label upon Cranfield School of Management for a further period of five years.

The decision means that Cranfield continues to be one of an elite group of schools worldwide to hold the triple accreditation of AACSB International (the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), AMBA (the Association of MBAs) and EQUIS.

Professor David Oglethorpe, Pro-Vice-Chancellor and Dean of Cranfield School of Management, said: “We are honoured to retain our EQUIS Accreditation – this is a testament to the hard work and efforts of our staff who should be congratulated on the result. Along with our other accreditations, this endorsement continues the global recognition for our excellence in leadership development, powerful industry links and real-world focus.” 

The Accreditation Board was impressed with the significant progress made since the School was last accredited in 2015 and took particular note of the quality of Executive Education and close connections to the corporate world. The united faculty community at Cranfield was also highlighted.

EQUIS accreditation is the most comprehensive institutional accreditation system for business and management schools. It is acknowledged worldwide by potential students, faculty, employers, corporate clients and the media, often being a pre-requisite for entry to rankings.
