How does a business school move from being national to global? How can a school form partnerships and alliances across the globe to share experiences, faculty, students and knowledge? Becoming recognised in a world where there are at least 11,500 university business schools is difficult, but one thing is certain – accreditation by a major accrediting body indicates that the school is a member of a set of special management education institutions. There are three major accrediting bodies that are known around the world: EFMD (with EQUIS and EPAS), AACSB and AMBA. Accreditation brings with it many benefits, including a demonstrable signal that the school is committed to continuous quality improvement. This presentation, bringing together representatives of all three of the major accrediting bodies, discusses the benefits and value of international accreditation from the perspective of each body.
