The only Triple Crown accredited business school in Sweden!

In 2016, the School of Business, Economics and Law received a third international accreditation – AACSB. It thus becomes the only business school in Sweden that is what is popularly referred to as “Triple Crown” accredited. In this exclusive group includes, among others, London Business School, Antai at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, INSEAD in France and Copenhagen Business School. The School is already EQUIS and AMBA accredited. Along with AACSB, these are the three most prestigious international accreditations for business schools. They are different in nature and complement each other. Only around 70 business schools in the world (approx. 0.5%) have all three distinctions and are thus popularly referred to as “Triple Crown” accredited.

On the 19th of October 2016 we celebrated being Sweden’s only Triple Crown Accredited Business School:

Sweden’s only AMBA-accredited MBA programme


The School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg has been granted international AMBA accreditation for its Executive MBA programme. The School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg is thereby the only Swedish business school to have been accredited by the Association of MBAs (AMBA). This guarantee of quality is internationally considered to be the highest level of prestige an MBA programme can get.

The Association of MBAs (AMBA) is an international independent organisation that accredits postgraduate business programmes at business schools worldwide. AMBA accreditation defines a global standard for MBA programmes and only 238 business schools have thus far (2016) received AMBA accreditation, which equals less than two percent of all business schools in the world.

The assessment is based on the quality of the education, curricula and interaction with the participants. AMBA accreditation guarantees that the programmes are of a high standard and reflect current trends and innovations within postgraduate business programmes.

EQUIS – a quality stamp

The School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg is proud to be awarded the EQUIS-accreditation. Executive MBA programmes are a well defined and mature product. In Europe, programme requirements are defined and monitored by the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD), which awards an EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System) accreditation to schools with programmes that meet their standards. The EQUIS seal of approval has been granted to 130 business schools around the world.
