We are happy to announce that the EPAS accreditation has been recently awarded to three Institutions from Canada, Estonia and the United Kingdom. We are delighted to welcome two new countries, Canada and Estonia, to the EPAS pool.

Currently, more than 100 programmes are accredited by EPAS across 35 countries worldwide.

Four programmes from Faculty of Management, Laurentian University, Canada, Estonian Business School, Estonia & Faculty of Business, Oxford Brookes University, UK have been recognised by the EPAS quality label.

Dr. Stephen Havlovic, Dean of the Faculty of Management, Laurentian University, declared: "The international EPAS accreditation of our undergraduate business programs is a visible assurance of quality for current and future students, alumni and employers. As a bilingual university working in a very competitive higher education environment, it was important for us to be globally recognised for the excellence of our programmes."

Prof. Arno Almann, Rector of the Estonian Business School, said: "This is enormous recognition for EBS. It shows that the quality of our studies is up there with the very best business schools around the world. Such accreditation represents validation of what we’ve done to date in developing our study programmes and in ensuring the quality of our teaching and the competitiveness of the education we provide."

"We have always valued highly the rigour of the EPAS accreditation process in cross-checking our own quality assurance and delivery systems and helping us to achieve our aspiration of providing an outstanding student experience at all levels of study," added Mr. Chris Blackburn, Pro Vice-Chancellor & Dean of the Faculty of Business, Oxford Brookes University.

Further eight programmes from seven Institutions have been reaccredited by EPAS. Please read here [https://www.efmd.org/blog/view/1053-eight-programmes-successfully-reaccredited-by-epas ] what they said about the achievement.

I would like to also congratulate the seven Institutions that have successfully gone through the EPAS reaccreditation process. The programme accreditation from EFMD is one of the most demanding yet effective ways to certify the quality of a programme in the field of business and management. We would like to warmly congratulate all schools for the tremendous work they put into the development of their programmes and for the completion of the accreditation process."
