Triple accreditation, also known as Triple Crown accreditation, of schools of business is the combined accreditation of three major accreditation bodies – the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business in the United States, the Association of MBAs in the United Kingdom, and the EFMD Quality Improvement System in the European Union. Approximately 100 business schools worldwide, or about 1% of all business schools, are triply accredited.[1]
