The European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) is based on stringent international standards and awards a quality label to the best institutions of higher learning in business. Around 150 institutions in the world are part of the EQUIS club. This accreditation confirms the high quality of the Faculty's programs both from an academic and a pedagogical point of view. It also praises the integrated relationships HEC Lausanne enjoys with its economic and international partners.
The School's accreditation was renewed in December 2017 by the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD). It recognizes HEC Lausanne’s leading position among the world’s business and management institutions.
