Accreditation

Lancaster University Management School is in the top 1% of business schools in the world to hold triple accreditation.

Being triple accredited is a recognition of the quality of everything we do from the three most influential business school accreditation bodies (AACSB, EQUIS and the Association of MBAs).

AACSB

AACSB is the leading American business school accreditation body, which has accredited all of the USA's top business schools such as Harvard, Stanford and Wharton amongst others. AACSB is becoming global in its reach. LUMS received initial accreditation in 2008 and we were recently reaccredited for a further five years.

EQUIS logo

EQUIS

EQUIS is the leading European business school accreditation kitemark, managed by the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD). Like AACSB, EQUIS is becoming global in reach. The EQUIS process requires, in particular, that internationalisation and strong organisational relationships are embedded in the School's activities. LUMS was first accredited in 2003 and was re-accreditated for a further five years in 2013.

The Association of MBAs

LUMS has been accredited by AMBA since 1996. The Association of MBAs, although UK-based in its origins, is the only accreditation body to focus on MBA programmes around the world. Lancaster's Full-time MBA and Executive MBA programmes, and the MSc in Management, are all accredited by the Association of MBAs.
