EQUIS Accreditation Awarded to Two Business Schools

Russia's SKOLKOVO and Canterbury Business School in New Zealand are now EQUIS-accredited

The international accreditation organization EQUIS has announced that it has awarded accreditation to two business schools, both of which offer MBA programs. Here are the newly accredited schools:

Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO: founded in 2006, the school offers both MBA and EMBA programs. This is the second business school in Russia to be awarded EQUIS accreditation; the first was St. Petersburg University, Graduate School of Management.

New Zealand's University of Canterbury Business School, based in Cristchurch, which offers an MBA program. With this EQUIS accreditation, Canterbury joins an exclusive list of triple-accredited business schools, meaning that it holds accreditation from all three main international accreditation organizations (EQUIS, AACSB, and AMBA.) Some four other business schools in New Zealand hold EQUIS accreditation.

To receive accreditation from EQUIS, a business school must undergo a rigorous review process, which looks at quality indicators across ten areas, including corporate engagement, sustainability, faculty, and more. Over 180 business schools in 44 countries currently hold EQUIS accreditation.
