Accreditations and rankings



Since 2005 all management programmes taught at the University of Antwerp (in the Faculty of Applied Economics) have been accredited by AACSB and in 2010 the Faculty obtained EPAS accreditation for its Business Administration and Business Engineer programmes. Accreditation by NVAO is mandatory for all programmes in Flanders.


There is a whole range of international rankings, each with their own method of assessing the quaility of universities. Specific rankings for the Faculty of Business and Economics are:
