Joyful message for JIBS:
EQUIS accreditation continued to be secured for Jönköping International Business School
Jönköping International Business School (JIBS) at Jönköping University has been notified of renewed confidence from the International Accreditation Organization EFMD. The school's EQUIS accreditation is extended in five years, a receipt for purposeful work with quality.
This week, JIBS announced that it received confidence for another five years by the EFMD accreditation body. During 2017, extensive work was ongoing at JIBS, culminating in a visit from EFMD in November. JIBS will renew confidence for another five years, the best result a business college can get from EFMD .
-We are happy and proud to gain further confidence. EQUIS is an international quality stamp and recognition of JIBS as a globally viable business school. Accreditation can lead to new collaborations with strong environments internationally, and it makes us more attractive to the very best students and researchers, says Professor Jerker Moodysson, CEO and academic director of JIBS.

It was in March 2015 that JIBS received the initial three-year accreditation, which has now been followed up with a review three years later. EQUIS accreditation is held in Sweden by the business schools in Stockholm and Gothenburg and the University of Economics at Lund University.
"This is very positive and a confirmation of the high quality Jönköping International Business School holds in research and education. All employees, students and collaborators can be very proud of this award, says Agneta Marell, Rector at Jönköping University. EFMD evaluates business schools based on criteria that reflect quality in education, research and organization. In order to get EQUIS, three themes need to pervade the entire business: internationalization, business cooperation, and ethics, accountability, and sustainability.
