At its largest annual event, held between 5 and 7 June 2019 in Lisbon, in front of over 600 delegates from all over the world, the EFMD – European Foundation for Management Development (the European accreditation association that awards the EQUIS accreditation) appointed Prof. Dr Metka Tekavčič, the Dean of the School of Economics and Business, University of Ljubljana, an EFMD Board Member. This was an expression of extraordinary honour and recognition for the Dean, her work and for the School of Economics and Business over the past years.

The Brussels-based EFMD awards the EQUIS accreditation and is the largest international foundation for management development, comprising nearly 900 institutional members from the academic and business communities in more than 86 countries. The EFMD is established and globally recognised as an accreditation organisation for quality and for assessing the impact of quality on the management of business schools, business programmes and on-line programmes. The EFMD confers the highest international quality awards – the EQUIS, EPAS and CLIP international accreditations – along with the EOCCS international certificate.

The EQUIS international accreditation: The SEB LU has already been awarded the EQUIS accreditation five times, first in 2006 and then it was extended in 2009, 2012, 2015 and the last for 5 years in 2018. EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System) is the world’s leading accreditation for business and economics schools and is awarded by the EFMD. An EQUIS-accredited school is the epitome of academic quality and professional appropriateness, co-operation with the corporate world, international dimensions of the study programmes, students, the teaching staff and researchers, research excellence and socially responsible conduct.

More than 960 schools from around the world are EFMD members, yet only 182 of them hold the EQUIS accreditation, thus placing our school on an even higher ranking. This accreditation proves the SEB LU’s excellence in all areas of its operations: management of the institution, creation of an effective learning environment, study programmes and delivery, care for the development of students , the faculty and expert staff, research, education for managerial staff, internationalisation, social responsibility and links with the corporate world.
