Newly-accredited schools include China's SWUFE and France's ESC Rennes

The European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD) has announced that it has awarded EQUIS accreditation to three new business schools.

The newly-accredited business schools are China's Southwest University of Finance and Economics (SWUFE), France's ESC Rennes, and the University of Groningen, which is in the Netherlands.

SWUFE's accreditation brings the number of schools in China that are accredited by EQUIS to 17. SWUFE, however, is the first business school in the western part of the country to receive this distinction. The school offers a range of MBA programs in Chinese and English.

With the new EQUIS accreditation, France's ESC Rennes is now one of a select group of business schools to have the "triple crown" - accreditation from AMBA, AACSB, and EQUIS. ESC Rennes offers an Executive MBA program.

The University of Groningen is the fifth business school in the Netherlands to receive EQUIS accreditation. The school does not offer any MBA programs, but does have a range of MSc options in English.
