The IQS School of Management has earned renewed accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), an international recognition for the quality of the programmes at IQS, which the association itself publicly reported on 8 February.

IQS first earned AACSB accreditation in 2007. Since then, IQS has renewed and maintained its status with no reservations, and all bachelor's, master's, and doctoral programmes in the IQS School of Management remain fully accredited.

The Peer Review group that conducted the evaluation highlighted the international dimension at IQS, recognizing that, in addition to being visible in the profile of its teaching staff and in the number of international students, it is strongly exemplified in the joint programmes IQS offers with foreign universities, such as the Joint Master in Global Entrepreneurial Management or the Marketing and International Business degrees that enable students to obtain a dual or even a triple international degree.

The accreditation also merits congratulations for the synergies between the two faculties at IQS (the School of Engineering and the School of Management), which are reflected in a variety of areas, including their joint initiatives through the IQS Tech Factory entrepreneurship centre. Other aspects highlighted by the evaluators included the pedagogical innovation, research efforts, and intellectual contributions at the university.

The AACSB is an American organization that recognizes excellence in the business schools that it accredits following rigorous quality control of educational management. AACSB accreditation supports the internationalization of programmes with prestigious universities and mobility for IQS School of Management students as it enables them to do exchanges with the best universities in the world. By earning renewed accreditation, the IQS School of Management stands firmly positioned among the world's elite business schools.
