Tourism, hospitality and international business management courses at Sheffield Hallam University have this week received an international award in recognition of their quality.

Professor Adrian Hopgood, pro vice-chancellor of SheffieldBusinessSchool at the University, collected the EPAS Accreditation Award on Monday (16 June) from the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD) at a special ceremony during their annual conference in Vienna, Austria. The EMFD Programme Accreditation Scheme (EPAS) is a scheme that evaluates the quality of business or management degree programmes that have an international perspective. Professor Adrian Hopgood, Pro Vice-Chancellor and Dean of Sheffield Business School at Sheffield Hallam, said: "It is a privilege to be able to collect this award on behalf of the Business School.  It is a testament to the hard work of my colleagues that has gone into meeting the rigorous standards of the accreditation process. "Our students will really benefit from this accreditation through international market recognition of our high quality programmes, and increased opportunities to broaden their learning experiences by studying abroad with partner institutions." The University is now one of only three institutions worldwide to obtain this accreditation award for its undergraduate hospitality and tourism courses. It is also one of only six institutions worldwide to have obtained this accreditation for a postgraduate international business course. Courses that have been accredited are: MSc International Business Management; BSc (Hons) Hospitality Business Management; BSc (Hons) International Hotel Management; and BSc (Hons) Tourism Management.
