Sheffield Hallam Business School reaches new heights!

3rd March 2014

Tourism, hospitality and international business management courses at Sheffield Business School at Sheffield Hallam University have received an important benchmark of international quality, after being accredited by the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD).

The University is one of only three institutions worldwide that have obtained EFMD accreditation for its undergraduate hospitality and tourism courses, and is one of only six institutions worldwide to have obtained this accreditation for a postgraduate international business course. The MSc International Business Management, BSc (Hons) Hospitality Business Management, BSc (Hons) International Hotel Management and BSc (Hons)Tourism Management all received accreditation from the EMFD Programme Accreditation Scheme (EPAS). The scheme evaluates the quality of business or management degree programmes that have an international perspective. The recognition means the courses will benefit from international partnerships, and students will have more opportunities to work or study abroad. Professor Adrian Hopgood, Pro Vice-Chancellor and Dean of the Sheffield Business School at Sheffield Hallam, said: "It is our students who really benefit from this accreditation through an international market recognition of our high quality business and management programmes. It gives Sheffield Business School greater potential for cross-border recognition by national quality agencies and other EPAS-accredited institutions. "The accreditation process particularly focuses on academic rigour, the quality of the student experience, the level of business engagement, the international dimension of the programme, and linkages with alumni and their career progression." EPAS is currently the only international programme accreditation system able to assess individual programmes in the full range from bachelors to doctoral degrees (including masters and MBAs) in the business and management education field.
