Business School awarded EQUIS Accreditation
20 Jun 2013
The University of Sydney Business School has achieved re-accreditation from the prestigious European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) Awarding Body, the quality assurance arm of the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD).
Regarded as one of the most rigorous accreditation programs in the world, this recognition of the quality of the University of Sydney Business School cements its standing amongst the world's best providers of business education.
"The Business School is delighted, and extremely proud, to receive accreditation from EQUIS once again," said Professor Tyrone Carlin, Co-Dean of the Business School. "This is another significant milestone for the University of Sydney Business School, and highlights our ongoing commitment to building a globally recognised business school, capable of delivering world-class education to our students."
"This achievement is reflective of the excellent work being done by the academic and professional staff of the Business School," Professor Carlin continued. "Additionally, EQUIS Accreditation confirms the investment we are making in the future of the Business School, through infrastructure projects like the Abercrombie Precinct Project, and our ongoing efforts to attract the very best academics and students."
EQUIS accreditation is awarded following an extensive self-review, the preparation of a self-assessment report, and an international Peer Review Team visit, which was completed in early 2013.
The University of Sydney Business School joins 141 universities worldwide with EQUIS accreditation, including eight Australian institutions, only two of which are from New South Wales.
