In early 2015, MSF Program was granted an initial 3-year EPAS accreditation and in 2018, a 5-year re-accreditation by European Foundation for Management Development or EFMD (a globally-recognized accreditation body for business schools, business school programs, and corporate universities).  Moreover, Chulalongkorn Business School [CBS] is also awarded with the world-class AACSB accreditation which represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. Less than 5 percent of the more than 16,000 schools worldwide granting business degrees have earned AACSB Accreditation. This is solid proof of CBS’s highest standard of teaching and research quality, and CBS will continue to play an active role and strive for excellence on the global stage. In addition to AACSB accreditation, Chulalongkorn Business School is also awarded with the world-class EQUIS accreditation by European Foundation of Management Development (EFMD), joining fewer than 200 EQUIS accredited schools worldwide. This is further proven CBS’s excellent academic development that attracts high-quality students as well as well-structured academic programs.
