EPAS Governance

The EPAS Accreditation Board

The EPAS Accreditation Board is composed of representatives of high profile organisations that are stakeholders in the quality improvement of management education. It evaluates the Peer Review Reports on programmes that are being put forward for EPAS and, based on their recommendations, makes the final decision to confer EPAS accreditation upon those business and management programmes that have demonstrated excellence at an international level. The Accreditation Board normally meets three times a year at the request of the EPAS Directors.
