Accreditations and Rankings

The accreditation team is proud to be within the 1% of business schools in the world to hold AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA accreditations. As well as the triple accreditation crown, we are recognised by other professional accreditations for our subject areas of Management and Accounting and Finance, and other industry bodies, including Athena Swan to support and transform gender equality within higher education and research, and PRME to nurture responsible leaders of the future.   

Our rankings activities are vital to ensuring a high standard of teaching within our School. Rankings enables our prospective students to measure the relative value of our degree programmes. Our programmes are currently ranked by The Financial Times, The Economist and QS, three of the most prestigious rankings organisations. 

We follow the legacy of Adam Smith by developing enlightened, engaged and enterprising graduates and contribute to the University’s strategy: World Changers Together.
