Important milestone In AACSB accreditation
The School of Business and Economics is currently working on gaining our AACSB accreditation. The initial self-evaluation report, an important step in this process, has recently been approved by the AACSB.
Accredited schools must meet very strict quality standards and are widely known as the best business schools in the world. Therefore, they attract the best students, local and international. We are very pleased that we have reached this important milestone!

On Friday 15 March, we celebrated this positive news from AACSB with all our colleagues from the School of Business and Economics with cake and a speech by Dean Arjen van Witteloostuijn.
