Henley maintains its position in the top 1% of business schools worldwide


Henley Business School has achieved full EQUIS re-accreditation for another five years from the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD). In doing so, Henley maintains its triple-accreditation status (AACSB, AMBA, EQUIS), and remains one of the top business schools in the world.

One of only a handful of UK business schools to hold triple-crown accreditation from the UK, European and US accreditation bodies, Henley has once again demonstrated its commitment to exceeding standards of excellence and dedication to continued improvement.

Areas identified as best practice and regarded by EQUIS as being above the level required include Henley’s corporate connections, particularly relating to the topic of real estate and Henley’s Centre for Coaching. Also recognised was Henley’s World of Work Institute - a large-scale interdisciplinary forum bringing together industry and faculty in the co-creation of knowledge around the future of work.

Reflecting on the re-accreditation, Professor Elena B. Spasova, Dean of Henley Business School, said: “Retaining our position as a top global business school is an excellent outcome for Henley and we’re delighted to be re-accredited for a further five years. Achieving this benchmark of international excellence reinforces our status as one of the best business schools in the world, offering students a high-quality learning experience with access to world class faculty and research along with unparalleled connections to industry.

“This re-accreditation is testament to all the hard work of our faculty, staff and students across the School – and I’d like to thank all for their commitment to Henley’s continued success.”

The recent announcement follows a comprehensive assessment by EQUIS which took place in January 2024. EQUIS is an internationally recognised accreditation ensuring continuous improvement and quality within business schools. Its rigorous peer-review process signals the school’s overall quality, viability and self-improvement commitment to students, employers and academic partners worldwide.
