The Faculty of Economics & Business has been awarded the prestigious EQUIS accreditation for an additional five years. This re-accreditation was achieved following an extensive evaluation of the faculty by the EQUIS Peer Review Team in February of this year. The last EQUIS re-accreditation was awarded in 2021, then for a period of three years.

Dean of the faculty Professor Peter Verhoef is very happy with the re-accreditation: "We are very proud and pleased that we now have earned a five-year accreditation from EQUIS. This is an excellent result for our faculty, and it shows that our faculty is doing very well. The panel was pleased with our mission, vision and strategy and the increased diversity in teaching styles within our faculty. Our research institute, with its high rankings, quality publications and success in obtaining grants, was also praised. Additionally, the progress made in our executive education and our strong ties with local companies and national players were commended.”
