What is EPAS?
EPAS is an international program accreditation system operated by the European Foundation for Management Development. It aims to evaluate the quality of any business and/or management program that has an international perspective and, where of an appropriately high quality, to accredit it. The highly demanding EPAS standards ensure that the accredited programs are designed and delivered so that they are both academically rigorous and have practical relevance for students in today’s global environment.
David Asch, Director of Quality Services & EPAS Director, commented:
We are delighted to welcome the Peter Faber Business School into the EPAS community...The EPAS accreditation from EFMD is one of the most demanding yet effective ways to certify the quality of a program in the field of business and management.
