School of Business, Economics and is Law re-accredited by AACSB


After an extensive assessment by AACSB, the School of Business, Economics and Law is re-accredited for another five-year period. The School is aligned with all AACSB standards and has undergone extensive development since the latest AACSB accreditation in 2016.

AACSB is a prestigious international accreditation of business schools which, in addition to being a hallmark of quality, is also a valuable instrument in the work of continuous development of our operations. The School of Business, Economics and Law was accredited in 2016 and has now successfully undergone a re-accreditation.

In their report, the Peer Review Team praise the School's strategy development and the clear focus on sustainability issues, our continuous improvement of quality in research and education, and our ability to respond to current societal challenges and to collaborate with the surrounding society.

The School of Business, Economics and Law is accredited by AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA and is thus one of only about 100 business schools in the world that are what is called "Triple Crown accredited".

"Accreditations strengthen our reputation and confirm that we live up to high academic standards in an international context. Accreditations are often a prerequisite for being able to collaborate with the best business schools in the world, for example on student exchange. They are also valuable in the recruitment of students and faculty", says Per Cramér, Dean of the School of Business, Economics and Law

The work with accreditations is about continuous quality improvement and quality assurance of education, research and collaboration with the surrounding society.

“The recommendations and comments we have received from the Peer Review Team are very valuable for the School's continued development”, says Per Cramér.

About the AACSB accreditation

AACSB is of American origin, but today there are over 900 accredited business schools in more than 50 countries. The AACSB accreditation is process-oriented and the school’s mission is central. The School of Business, Economics and Law received its first AACSB accreditation in 2016. From 2022, the AACSB accreditation also means that the School thereby fulfills the national evaluation requirements for higher education prescribed by UKÄ. The evaluation group therefore also included a student representative from another university.
