School of Business receives European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) accreditation for another three years

工商管理學院再獲歐洲質量發展體系頒發三年認證

The School of Business recently received the European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) accreditation from the European Foundation for Management Development for another three-year term. With this re-accreditation obtained from EQUIS following the initial recognition in 2013, the School of Business has become one of the few business schools worldwide to hold accreditations from the three major management education associations, namely EQUIS, the US-based Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), and the Association of MBAs (AMBA) in the UK. This multiple accreditation status reflects the School’s high level with regards local and international benchmarks, and represents its continuous commitment to excellence.

The EQUIS reviewers visited the School of Business earlier this year and examined all aspects of teaching and learning, research as well as management of the school as a whole. The Peer Review Team was impressed with the School’s excellent performance in teaching and learning, and its growing research output and quality. Their feedback was positive, in particular its praise of the School’s strong commitment to teaching quality and care for students, underpinned by HKBU’s ethos of whole person education. The School also received re-accreditation from AACSB for another five-year term in March this year.

The EQUIS accreditation was founded by the European Foundation for Management Development in 1997. It places an emphasis on the international dimension of business schools’ activities, their interface with the corporate world, and ethos of promoting responsible management. Its approach to quality assessment is rooted in a respect for diversity in institutional and cultural contexts.

工商管理學院最近獲得歐洲管理發展基金會的歐洲質量發展體系 (EQUIS) 頒發認證,為期三年,是學院繼2013年後再度獲得該會的認可資格,成為全球少數同時獲得三項國際商管教育認證機構,包括EQUIS、美國國際商學院促進協會(AACSB) 和英國工商管理碩士課程協會 (AMBA) 所認可的高等大學商學院,代表學院的商管教育質量保證系統達致高規格水平,持續符合國際學術指標。

EQUIS評審專家學者於今年初到訪浸大工商管理學院,就學院的教與學、學術研究與校務管理等方面進行質量評估。評審團隊十分欣賞學院的整體教與學表現,並讚揚其學術研究成果在質與量兩方面正不斷提升。評審報告指出,學院一直秉持浸大全人教育的理念,並將理念融入課程,有效實踐優質教育,配合學生的學習需要。學院於本年3月亦剛再次獲得AACSB為期五年的認證。

EQUIS由歐洲管理發展基金會於1997年創立,旨在致力加強商學院的國際化發展,與商界建立緊密的聯繫和合作,以及提倡責任管理教育。EQUIS認證質量評估範疇涵蓋學院的整體發展,採用嚴格標準,並會因應受評估機構所位處的地域文化,作出適當調整。
