University of Exeter Business School accredited by prestigious international body
The University of Exeter Business School has joined an elite group of international institutions to achieve the coveted “triple crown” accreditation status. Following a rigorous assessment process it has gained accreditation from The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), based in the United States.
Having already gained accreditations from EQUIS and AMBA, the University of Exeter Business School has now officially gained triple accreditation – also known as Triple Crown accreditation – granted by the three largest and most influential business school accreditation organisations worldwide. This prestigious triple accreditation is only held by less than 100 business school’s globally – fewer than 1% – placing Exeter among the very best worldwide.
Speaking about the accreditation Pro Vice-Chancellor and Executive Dean of the Business School, Professor David Bruce Allen, says, “At the University of Exeter Business School, our mission is to deliver outstanding and innovative business education and research that address the major challenges confronting businesses and society. Gaining AACSB accreditation demonstrates our commitment to continuous improvement within all that we do, and highlights the high-quality and hard work of our academics and professional staff and the positive impact this has on our students and partners.”
AACSB is the longest-serving global accrediting body for business schools, and the largest business education network connecting students, educators, and businesses worldwide. Synonymous with the highest standards of quality, AACSB accreditation inspires new ways of thinking within business education globally and, as a result, has been earned by only 5% of the world’s schools offering business degrees at the bachelor level or higher.
Executive Vice President and Chief Accreditation Officer of AACSB International, Stephanie M Bryant, says, “We congratulate the University of Exeter and Pro Vice-Chancellor and Executive Dean David Allen on earning accreditation, and applaud the entire Exeter team—including the administration, faculty, staff, and students—for their roles in earning this respected honour. The University of Exeter’s commitment to earning accreditation is a true reflection of their dedication—not only to their students, alumni network, and greater business community, but to the higher education industry as a whole.”
The University of Exeter Business School, based in Exeter and Penryn in Cornwall, has approximately 3,900 students, studying courses in Management, Economics, Accounting and Finance and teaches the world leading Exeter MBA.
