Nottingham University Business School has reached a tremendous milestone after receiving an accreditation from AACSB International — The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) for all three of its locations in the UK, China and Malaysia. This puts the Nottingham University Business School in a world-class position as the only business school in the UK to hold the ‘triple crown’ title for its operations on every campus.
The prestige ‘triple crown’ accreditation signifies high standards, quality and reputation for business schools worldwide. It’s made up of the 3 most influential accrediting organisations — AACSB in the United States, AMBA in the UK, and EQUIS in Europe. AACSB was the final accreditation that the University of Nottingham needed to complete its treble.
“AACSB’s accreditation of our three campuses in the UK, China and Malaysia, marks us out as one of an elite group of business schools that are triple accredited across multiple campuses. AACSB accreditation will enable the school to continue to evolve and improve in the future," remarked Professor Duncan Angwin, Dean of Nottingham University Business School UK.
In order to be awarded the AACSB accreditation, business schools have to undergo a rigorous review process conducted by their peers in the business education community, ensuring that they have the resources, credentials, and commitment needed to provide students with a first-rate, future-focused business education.
Nottingham University Business School was first awarded Association of MBAs (AMBA) accreditation in 1993 and has successfully been re-accredited by AMBA ever since. The EQUIS accreditation (the EFMD Quality Improvement System) was first awarded in 2010 with successful renewal in 2021. EQUIS is granted by the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD).
