*The Triple Crown of accreditations means we have international accreditation from the world’s foremost accrediting bodies – AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA. Just 1% of business schools worldwide have this Triple Crown endorsement, so it puts us among a select group of institutions globally and means the Business School is benchmarked against the best in the world.

In addition, reviewers interview staff and students to ensure they’re receiving consistent and valid information.
