Accreditations and rankings

Not only is LUSEM part of a world renowned university, but we are also one of a small number of schools worldwide to be triple accredited by the three leading bodies, AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS. When you study, work or solve problems together with us, you become a part of this success story.

Triple accreditation

Lund University School of Economics and Management is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the EFMD Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) and the Association of MBAs (AMBA).

The triple accreditation, or the Triple Crown, is held by just over 100 business schools worldwide, and less than 1% of all business schools. Our accolades at both School and programme level support our position as a globally recognised business school.
