Nottingham Business School (NBS) has achieved a global mark of excellence which recognises its dedication to providing a personalised experience for all its students, its connections with industry partners, and its commitment to ethics, responsibility and sustainability.  

NBS, part of Nottingham Trent University, completed an assessment process to retain its EQUIS accreditation for the full five-year period.

The review team noted three major areas of achievement, which included personalised learning, connections with practice and ethics, responsibility and sustainability.

Personalisation and experiential learning were recognised as outstanding features of all programmes and modules at NBS. The use of a ‘student dashboard’ to measure engagement was seen to be internationally leading, adding positively to the student experience.

The high quality of skills and professional development among NBS graduates was recognised by industry partners.

 Ethics, responsibility and sustainability were found to be ingrained into all aspects of NBS, with the review noting that the School encourages initiatives which make a positive impact on the community.

EQUIS is awarded by EFMD, a global, non-profit, membership-driven organisation dedicated to management development.

Executive Dean of Nottingham Business School, Professor Baback Yazdani, said: “The assessment revealed the passion that our colleagues and students have for Nottingham Business School and their pride in being part of our community. This sense of belonging and commitment to making NBS the best it can be is reflected in the achievement of securing EQUIS accreditation for the full five-year term – an outstanding accomplishment for everyone involved.”
