Schulich Receives Highly Prized EQUIS Accreditation
Schulich has received a third consecutive five-year EQUIS accreditation from EFMD (The European Foundation for Management Development).
EQUIS, also known as the European Quality Improvement System, is widely regarded as the premier quality designation for business schools. Institutions accredited by EQUIS must not only demonstrate a high level of quality in all dimensions of their activities, but also a high degree of internationalization, close connections to the corporate community, and responsible business management.
EQUIS has two levels of accreditation, with five-year accreditation being the highest level. Only business schools that meet all of the EQUIS quality standards are awarded EQUIS accreditation for a period of five years.
“EQUIS accreditation is recognition of the quality of our programs, our students and our faculty by one of the most prestigious and highly regarded accrediting organizations in the world,” says Detlev Zwick, Dean of the Schulich School of Business. “I wish to thank all of the members of the Schulich community who took part in the very demanding accreditation process.”
