International Perspective & Accreditations
Internationalization is at the core of our school’s vision and mission.
Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management, located in the cosmopolitan heart of Belgium and Europe, has been an international school from its very inception.
The internationalization strategy of the school is based on three pillars: international stakeholders, the global reach of our students, and international visibility.
The Solvay Brussels Schools of Economics and Management has ambitions and hopes to crown its efforts to be a leading school by obtaining the three major international accreditations – also named the Triple Crown: AMBA, EQUIS, and AACSB. We are well underway: we are already AMBA and EQUIS accredited and in the process to obtain the AACSB accreditation.
Why is this so important? Because leading schools are accredited, meaning that their peers recognize the international high quality of the research and educational programs of the school. Accreditations provide a school with a quality standard framework that enables the school to present its uniqueness: its vision, mission, and ambitions. And, of course, accreditations focus on the achievement of the school’s premises. An accredited school is a school that delivers. It is as simple as that.
These accreditations are increasingly important in a global world, just as rankings are: they communicate high quality, they assure delivery of a promise, and guarantee that a school is well connected with society. Accreditations show that the school has clear ambitions and aspirations and that the school not only has the will or determination to deliver high quality but actually succeeds in delivering that quality as defined by the school itself but recognized by its international peers.
