WBS sets high standards in both research and teaching. We have won acclaim and approval from all the leading national and international assessors and accreditation bodies. We are proud to be part of an elite group of global business schools who have triple accreditation from AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA.
AACSB members are only AACSB-accredited if they are able to satisfy a wide-ranging, rigorous set of quality standards. As such, Warwick Business School is able to demonstrate that it provides a relevant, challenging curriculum delivered by faculty of a high calibre, and excellent educational and career opportunities. The graduates we produce are therefore highly skilled and very desirable to employers.
We were the first institution in the UK to be accredited by the US -based Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. We have been accredited by them since 1999.
AMBA accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement in postgraduate business education and is earned only by the best programmes. In a crowded and complex market, our accreditation demonstrates quality and ensures that students’ investments are rewarded with the finest business education available.
The Association of MBAs has accredited the MBA since 1970.
We are accredited by the Chartered Institute for Personnel & Development (CIPD). CIPD accreditation is the foremost award in the fields of Human Resource Management and Employment Relations, demonstrating not only the rigorous academic and professional standards students on our Human Resource Management and Employment Relations courses meet, but also that our graduates are equipped with the knowledge, skills and proficiencies in demand by employers.
