Thammasat Business School (TBS) is the first and only business school in Thailand that has achieved the illustrious triple crown accreditation from the world’s most influential business school accreditation organisations. Only the best business schools achieve such a feat and of the 13,670 business schools around the world, only 90 business schools (<1%) are triple-accredited.
A Triple Crown business school is one which has been awarded fully accredited international education standards from 3 international organisations, namely AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) from the United States, EQUIS (EFMD Quality Improvement System) from Europe, and AMBA (Association of MBAs) from the United Kingdom. Accreditation involves a stringent quality control process in which an independent body accesses the quality of a specific educational institution or study programme guaranteeing that students receive the highest quality education. All 3 types of accreditation have different assessment criteria and strict rules.
EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System): accredited in 2012
The European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD) is a non-profit organisation that certifies business education standards for business schools and business school programs, corporate universities and online courses. The EFMD quality control system is a comprehensive review which covers the whole institution including undergraduate level, graduate level, and executive courses. TBS attained EQUIS accreditation in 2012 by EFMD, not only for courses, but also academic activities including research and various academic collaborations.
AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business): accredited in 2017
