Hult awarded EQUIS accreditation and triple crown status
We’re pleased to announce that our National Advisory Board Member, Hult International Business School, has recently been awarded EQUIS accreditation, officially achieving the coveted “triple crown” accreditation status.
This means that Hult is now recognized by the three most prestigious international accrediting bodies: AACSB, EQUIS, and AMBA. They are the first and only business school in the U.S. to achieve this status.
What is EQUIS accreditation?
EQUIS is a global accreditation scheme for leading institutions of business education. It is granted and run by the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD), whose mission is to raise the standard of management education worldwide. It is arguably one of the most rigorous of international business school accreditation schemes, taking several years to prepare for the process of accreditation.
EQUIS makes a comprehensive and holistic assessment of the school, looking not only at the degree programs offered but also at the activities of the institution—from teaching, research, and business connections, to executive education provision, community outreach, alumni relations, student opinion, and administration resources.
EQUIS has a particular focus on internationalization and relevance, looking at a school’s connections with the real world of global business. EQUIS-accredited institutions are expected to have an innovative learning environment that develops leadership as well as entrepreneurial skills and fosters a sense of global responsibility.
What does it mean for Hult?
Hult now joins the 1% of business schools worldwide to be triple accredited, confirming their standing as one of the best schools globally. This new accreditation stands as a testament to the quality of their forward-thinking, global approach to education, and the ongoing success of their graduates across the world.
