EFMD would like to warmly congratulate Adam Smith Business School within the University of Glasgow who have just been awarded EQUIS accreditation.

This takes the number of accredited schools to 156 across 40 countries.

"The Adam Smith Business School, indeed the University of Glasgow, are extremely pleased and excited with the EQUIS accreditation award. As a consequence of undertaking the accreditation process, the School has learned much and has much to build on. We look forward with greater confidence in our efforts to enhancing further the standing and performance of the School, and to engaging fully with EFMD and the EQUIS team," said prof. Jim Love, Head of Adam Smith Business School, University of Glasgow, UK.

EFMD is delighted to announce that further ten Schools from eight countries have been successfully reaccredited by EQUIS. Please read here what the Deans of reaccredited Schools say about the achievement.

Prof. Michael Osbaldeston, the EFMD Director of Quality Services & EQUIS Director added: "We are delighted to welcome Adam Smith Business School, University of Glasgow, into the community of EQUIS accredited schools. EQUIS accreditation ensures a rigorous quality improvement process, involving a thorough self-assessment, a visit of an international peer review team, and finally a very experienced Awarding Body evaluating the assessment and findings of the review team to determine whether the School should be granted accreditation. EQUIS benchmarks the School against international standards in terms of governance, programmes, faculty, students, research, and foremost, corporate engagement, internationalisation and ethics, responsibility and sustainability. There are currently no substitutes for such an in-depth assessment of quality and all the schools should be commended for their commitment to excellence."
