Salford Business School course receives prestigious accreditation

Thursday 20 September 2012
Salford Business School has become the sixth British business school with Educational Planning and Assessment System (EPAS) accreditation.

Salford Business School has been awarded the European Foundation for Management Development’s (EFMD) prestigious EPAS accreditation for its MSc in International Business.

EFMD is one of the three leading international accreditation bodies of quality in management education which evaluates any business or management programme that has an international perspective. Their EPAS accreditation is based on international benchmarking and a comprehensive review that only recognises programmes of the highest global standards.

Professor Amanda Broderick, Dean of Salford Business School, said: “With member business schools represented across more than 80 countries, the fact that Salford Business School has become the sixth British business school with EPAS accreditation, out of 56 worldwide, is a considerable achievement of which we are most proud.

"Recognition of the quality standards, internationalisation, corporate connections and sustainability of this programme is particularly timely as it corroborates the recent innovation to our new ‘lifestyle learning’ postgraduate portfolio.

“The advanced curriculum of this programme and entire portfolio has been carefully designed to realise the career aspirations of our graduates and advance knowledge for next generation business practice in the digitally connected economy.”
