EFMD Global Network

An accreditation from EFMD is one of the best and most complete ways to certify the actual quality of a business school or a corporate university. The accreditation processes lead to improvement through the necessity for organisations to meet internationally agreed quality standards. The quality is assessed by Peer Review, which is a form of international benchmarking. Recognition comes through the award of an EFMD accreditation, acknowledged worldwide by potential students, employers, clients and the media.

As support to their accredited school members EFMD offers Highered a strategic initiative to all school members as the Official EFMD Global Career Services Platform.

EFMD is a global, membership driven organisation, based in Brussels, Belgium, with offices in Asia and the Americas.
