European Quality Improvement System
The European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) is a school accreditation system. It specializes in higher education institutions of management and business administration, run by the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD). As of June 2012, EQUIS has accredited 138 business schools in 38 countries around the world.
Object of the accreditation
The accreditation is awarded to business schools based on general quality. The process also takes into account the business school's level of internationalization, which is not a strict requirement for accreditation by the other two major international accreditation bodies: AACSB and AMBA. So far all fully accredited EQUIS business schools applying for AACSB accreditation have succeeded, which has not been the case the other way.
EQUIS accreditation can be granted conditionally for three years (with annual progress reports required) or unconditionally for five years.
