AU’s College of Business Administration was granted full membership into EFMD on December 5, 2018. EFMD, the accrediting body of EQUIS and EPAS, is a global network of business schools and corporations dedicated to enhancing excellence in management education and development globally. Based in Brussels, with offices in Asia and the Americas, EFMD has nearly 900 member organizations from academia, business, public service and consultancy in 88 countries.
An accreditation from EFMD is one of the best and most complete ways to certify the actual quality of a business school or a corporate university. The accreditation processes lead to improvement through the necessity for organisations to meet internationally agreed quality standards. The quality is assessed by Peer Review, which is a form of international benchmarking. Recognition comes through the award of an EFMD accreditation, acknowledged worldwide by potential students, employers, clients and the media.
