Royal Holloway’s School of Business and Management achieves AACSB accreditation

  • Date06 May 2021

Joining an exclusive group of less than 6% of the world’s business schools, the School of Business and Management at Royal Holloway, University of London, now holds business accreditation from AACSB International.

The School of Business and Management’s dedication to high quality research, excellent management education and commitment to having a positive impact upon management policy and practice has been recognised by AACSB International.

For over 100 years, AACSB accreditation has represented the highest standard of quality in business education in the world. As the longest-serving and largest business education network, AACSB connects lifelong learners, educators and businesses worldwide.

Professor Gloria Agyemang, Head of School, said: “Our School of Business and Management is delighted to have achieved accreditation by AACSB International.

“This accreditation journey has provided us with an opportunity to reflect upon and showcase our high quality research, excellent management education and commitment to having a positive impact upon management policy and practice.

“The ethos of continuous improvement that underpins the AACSB accreditation process is one that the School has truly embraced, putting us in an even stronger position going forward. The success of our bid for accreditation is testament to the hard work and dedication of academic and professional services colleagues, students, alumni, and external stakeholders, as well as the invaluable support received from our AACSB Mentor, Peer Review Team members and Staff Liaison.” 

Enhancing the School of Business and Management’s vision to be recognised internationally as a centre of excellence for inspiring and empowering students and staff to realise their full potential for the benefit of society, AACSB accreditation also ensures continuous improvement and provides focus for schools to deliver on their mission, innovate, and drive impact. 

Stephanie M. Bryant, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB, said: “AACSB accreditation recognises institutions that have demonstrated a focus on excellence in all areas, including teaching, research, curriculum development, and student learning.

“We congratulate Royal Holloway and Head of School Professor Gloria Agyemang on earning accreditation and applaud the entire School of Business and Management team—including the administration, faculty, staff, and students—for their roles in earning this respected honour.

“Royal Holloway’s commitment to earning accreditation is a true reflection of their dedication—not only to their students, alumni network, and greater business community, but to the higher education industry as a whole.

“Today’s students are tomorrow’s business leaders, and the addition of School of Business & Management to the network of AACSB-accredited business schools will have a lasting positive impact for their institution, both locally and globally.”
