The College of Economics and Political Science reached an important Milestone in its pursuit of educational excellence and received EQUIS Accreditation Eligibility on November 17, 2016. EQUIS is part of the EFMD: The Management Development Network, which is an international not-for-profit membership organization based in Brussels, Belgium which includes over 800 member organizations from academia, business, public service and consultancy in 81 countries. The College was selected as only 25% of the applications sent to EQUIS for eligibility consideration in the 2015 round. EQUIS eligibility now places CEPS among the best business schools, which must demonstrate the highest quality in teaching, student learning, corporate connections and international engagement. This outstanding achievement is due to the very best teamwork and efforts of all CEPS faculty, Head of Departments, Assistant Deans, the Accreditation Committee and Staff to meet the first and second stages of EQUIS accreditation standards. The College is now preparing a two-year Self-Assessment Report and the final accreditation visit by the EQUIS evaluators in Fall 2018.
