Accreditation

We have relentlessly worked on materializing the unique learning experience we boast into something more than a promise, a reality.

In the pursuit of excellence, we have managed to rise to the top tier of educational facilities. We now wear the “triple crown” accreditation (AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS) as an accolade to mark our standing as one of the exclusive 1% of world-class international business schools to receive this distinction.

Nevertheless, our crusade does not stop there, it is a lifelong commitment. We are always working on expanding our register of local and international accreditations.

What this means to you? 
The accreditations we acquired are a global benchmark of quality and ensure that your degree will be recognized throughout the world. They serve as official confirmation of the quality of our organization, our faculty and staff, our programs and the degrees we deliver. Essentially, it means that:

  • Programs are up-to-date and meet current business needs.
  • Programs are delivered by a qualified faculty.
  • Degrees are internationally recognized and meet international standards.
  • Companies recognize the quality of our degrees.
  • Our programs do in fact reflect our commitment to quality and continuous improvement.

In other words, when we talk about our high-quality standards and global reputation... you don’t just have to take our word for it!
