Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB) has received the highest level of 5-year EQUIS re-accreditation by the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD), receiving the highest seal of excellence in business management education any institution can achieve.
The EFMD Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) is the leading international system of quality assessment, improvement and accreditation of higher education institutions in management and business administration. Its fundamental objective, linked to the mission of EFMD, is to raise the standard of management education worldwide.
Dr. Xiang Bing, Founding Dean of CKGSB says, “We are honored and proud to receive a further 5-years EQUIS re-accreditation. This recognition is a testament to the quality we place on management education, our emphasis on academic rigour and faculty research. I’d like to thank our dedicated professors and staff for their commitment to building an institution that not only offers programs that are global in perspective, but to producing a generation of business leaders who are socially responsible. This award encourages us to continue our pursuit for academic excellence, to experiment and innovate, and to promote more inclusive economic development and social advancement for global, common and long-term good.”
The EFMD Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) was created in 1997 with a commitment to internationalisation, respect for diversity and the importance of corporate connection. The goal of EQUIS is not only to provide accreditation for business schools but to improve the quality of management education around the world. Starting with 19 pioneer schools in Europe, EQUIS accreditation now encompasses 197 accredited schools in 45 countries. Since January 2013, the EQUIS assessment process has fully embedded ethics, responsibility and sustainability. EQUIS assessment respects diversity by accepting wide differences in the organisation and delivery of management education, understanding each local context’s uniqueness.
