Adam Smith Business School Awarded EQUIS Accreditation

Adam Smith Business School Awarded EQUIS Accreditation

School is the third in Scotland to become triple-accredited

The University of Glasgow's Adam Smith Business School has been awarded EQUIS accreditation by the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD).

With the new accreditation, the school is now "triple-accredited;" that is, it has accreditations from EQUIS, AMBA, and AACSB.

Along with the University of Edinburgh Business School and Strathclyde Business School, Adam Smith becomes the third business school in Scotland to be triple-accredited. Less than one percent of the world's business schools are triple-accredited.

In total, EFMD has awarded EQUIS accreditation to some 156 business schools across 40 countries.

To become accredited by EQUIS, business schools must undergo a rigorous review and improvement process, involving a self-assessment, a peer review, and an evaluation.
