School of Business was again granted EQUIS accreditation for five years
The school got praise for having reached the development objectives of the ongoing period. These included transdisciplinarity, the sense of identity with the school on the part of its stakeholders, and the strong research culture.
‘I am delighted to say that the School of Business has reached its development objectives and progressed in many areas. Passing the evaluation process indicates that we meet demanding international quality criteria. Accreditations are based on continuous learning and the evaluators' feedback points the school in the right direction in further development. A big thank you to everyone involved in the accreditation process,’ says Dean Timo Korkeamäki.
The School of Business has been EQUIS accredited since 1998. The continuity of the accreditation is evaluated regularly by extensive assessment of the university’s activities and results.
EQUIS accreditation is granted for either three or five years. The School of Business has always been accredited for a period of five years. The development objectives for the next five-year cycle will be determined later this autumn.
In addition to EQUIS, the School of Business also holds the AACSB and AMBA accreditations. Only around one percent of the world's business schools hold this so called 'Triple Crown' status, which the School of Business has held since 2007 and was the first one in the Nordics to hold.
