Posted on Monday 19th May 2014

Birmingham Business School at the University of Birmingham has been awarded accreditation by the AACSB (the internationally renowned Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) confirming its place in the top elite of global business schools.

Birmingham Business School along with just a handful of the world’s business schools - now holds the gold standard of ‘triple-crown’ accreditation from the AACSB, the Association of MBAs (AMBA) and the European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS).

Robert D. Reid, Executive Vice Precedent and Chief Accreditation Officer of AACSB International commended the Schools success achievement by commenting: “It takes a great deal of commitment and determination to earn AACSB Accreditation. Business Schools must not only meet specific standards of excellence, but their deans, faculty, and professional staff must make a commitment to ongoing continuous improvement to ensure that the institution will continue to deliver the highest quality of education to students.”

Birmingham Business School is already world renowned for the quality of its research and teaching. With students representing over 60 countries currently studying at its main campus at the University of Birmingham and our courses being taught in a range of international business schools, together with an international faculty and global alumni community of around 23,000 graduates – the School has a global footprint that ensures worldwide impact.

Simon Collinson, Dean of Birmingham Business School added “Birmingham Business School has a global reputation for its approach to business. We were founded to improve the way businesses were managed and our partnerships with global companies, organisations and people ensures we are carrying on that proud tradition of borderless and boundary-free innovation”.
