EFMD Awards EPAS Accreditation to Three New Programmes in Australia, France & the UK

/ -- BRUSSELS, BELGIUM--(Marketwired - Oct 19, 2016) - Editors Note: There is an image associated with this press release.

We are happy to announce that the EPAS accreditation has been recently awarded to three institutions from Australia, France and the United Kingdom.

Currently, more than 100 programmes are accredited by EPAS across 35 countries worldwide.

Three programmes from the Graduate School of Business and Law, College of Business, RMIT University, Australia, EDC Paris Business School, France & Bristol Business School, Faculty of Business and Law, University of the West of England, UK have been recognised by the EPAS quality label.

"The Graduate School of Business and Law at RMIT University is delighted to achieve EPAS accreditation for our MBA (Executive) programme. EPAS accreditation challenged the school to examine in detail the design and delivery of our programme, programme outcomes and quality assurance processes," said Mark Farrell, Head of the School. "EPAS is the beginning of the journey and we need to constantly improve if we are to remain competitive. If you are a business school that has not yet taken the step towards EQUIS accreditation and are unsure if you are ready, I would strongly recommend that you consider EPAS in the first instance. The result will be a much improved programme, and a deeper understanding of the benefits of rigorous external accreditation."

"We are honoured to receive EPAS accreditation and delighted to take part in the community of EFMD accredited institutions," commented Jean-Marcel Jammet, Managing Director & Dean of EDC Paris Business School. "The accreditation process has been a great opportunity to rethink our internal processes and offer better services to our students."

"I am absolutely thrilled to have secured EPAS accreditation for our BA International Business Course. The accreditation is an important commendation of the quality of the programme and it reflects our commitment to internationalisation, corporate engagement and continuous improvement," added Donna Whitehead, Pro-Vice Chancellor and Executive Dean at Faculty of Business and Law, UWE.

The EPAS Accreditation Board has also reaccredited the Master in Insurance and Risk Management programme at the MIB Trieste School of Management, Italy.

David Asch, EFMD Associate Director of Quality Services & EPAS Director, commented: "We are delighted to welcome three new institutions to the community of EPAS accredited programmes. The programme accreditation from EFMD is one of the most demanding yet effective ways to certify the quality of a programme in the field of business and management. We would like to also warmly congratulate MIB Trieste for their reaccreditation. All four schools have made tremendous progress in terms of the development of their programmes and should be commended for their strive for excellence."
