Our School of Management MBA courses have been endorsed by the NHS Leadership Academy to deliver the NHS Master's in Business Administration (MBA) programme, as announced in a speech by the Secretary of State in 2016. 


AACSB

AACSB logo AACSB Accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide.

Less than 5% of the world's 13,000 business programs have earned AACSB Accreditation.

AACSB-accredited schools produce graduates that are highly skilled and more desirable to employers than other non-accredited schools.


AMBA

AMBA logo We were among the first business schools in the UK to receive portfolio accreditation for all our MBA programmes (including full-time, executive part-time and distance-learning MBAs) from AMBA (Association of MBAs).

All our Management MSc programmes are among the relatively small number of programmes to have received pre-experience master's in general management (PEMM) accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA).


EQUIS

EQUIS logo We have the prestigious EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System) - the leading international system of quality assessment, improvement, and accreditation of higher education institutions in management and business administration, run by the European Foundation for Management Development.


CIPD

CIPD Logo The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), the leading UK professional body for HR specialists, accredits our MSc in Human Resource Management, in recognition of the fact that it meets rigorous academic and professional standards. Our programme provides the underpinning knowledge required to achieve professional levels of CIPD membership.


ACCA

ACCA logo The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) accredit our MSc in Finance and Investment, our MSc in Financial Management, our BSc in Accounting and Finance, our BSc in Economics  and our BSc in Financial Economics. This means that, by successfully completing your degree, you are eligible for exemptions from some ACCA fundamental level examinations.
