CBS recently received a renewal of its EQUIS accreditation for another five years, CBS’ staff intranet, CBSshare reports. EQUIS – the “European Quality Improvement System” – is the leading international benchmark for quality, improvement and the accreditation of institutions of higher education in the fields of business and leadership.

CBS still top-notch enough to get maximum reaccreditation time
With the maximum five years reaccreditation of its EQUIS rating, CBS has documented a high standard in all areas covered by the EQUIS review. These areas include CBS’ internal and external management, autonomy, strategic positioning, programme quality, students, research, staff contribution to society, financial and human resources, degree of internationalisation and partnership with the business community.

The reviewers were especially impressed by the quality of CBS students, the development within research and publication and the school’s international reputation.

Needed: Administrative simplification and better IT systems
The reviewers did point out, however, that CBS could benefit from administrative simplification, better IT systems, the development of a stronger alumni network, as well as the establishment of more extensive relationships with foreign companies.

These areas are already a priority in CBS’ new strategy, and the feedback from EQUIS is therefore a clear confirmation to the leadership team overseeing planned future developments.

CBS’ first EQUIS accreditation dates back to 2000. Read more on the school’s work with accreditation and rankings here. Or find out more about EQUIS here.
