The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) has extended the accreditation of ESMT Berlin for another five years.

ESMT was first accredited by AACSB in 2012. The AACSB accreditation is the longest-standing form of specialized accreditation that business schools can receive. This voluntary process involves an intensive external review of each business school’s mission, the qualifications of its faculty and their curricula, and the programs themselves. With this accreditation, AACSB recognizes that ESMT meets rigorous standards and is committed to maintaining and continually improving the quality of its business programs.  

The international accreditations AACSB, AMBA, and EQUIS  form the “Triple Crown” and represent the highest quality distinction for business schools worldwide. ESMT is one of only four business schools in Germany to be awarded the “Triple Crown.”
