EQUIS accreditation for King's Business School

EQUIS is a prestigious, internationally recognised benchmarking system for business schools

EQUIS Accredited Logo

King’s Business School has earned accreditation from EQUIS, the prestigious business school accreditation system run by the European Foundation for Management Development.

EQUIS accreditation benchmarks institutions against rigorous international standards covering the quality of their governance, education programmes, students, staff and research. It assesses the extent of an institution’s internationalisation and engagement with the world of practice, as well as how it demonstrates commitment to ethics, responsibility and sustainability through its activities. The accreditation process is designed to ensure on-going improvement following each accreditation or re-accreditation visit. 

King’s Business School secured its EQUIS accreditation having applied for the first time following its evolution in 2017 from a department of Management Studies to a fully rounded business school. This initial accreditation will be for a three year period.

We are very proud to join the EQUIS community within just five years of becoming a business school; it is a mark of the rigour of our education and research and of our commitment to continuous improvement. The emphasis that EQUIS places on reaching demonstrable standards in areas like internationalisation, ethics and engagement with the world of practice is particularly important to us as we strive to work with businesses and our students and alumni to address societal challenges and have a positive impact around the world.– Professor Stephen Bach, Executive Dean, King's Business School

With this accreditation, King’s Business School joins a peer group of 206 EQUIS accredited schools across 46 countries globally. The School also achieved its first accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business earlier this year.
