Professor Murray Dalziel, Director of the University’s Management School, said: “AACSB accreditation places the Management School among the world’s best.”

A global leader in management and leadership training, education and research, the School is a place where students, academics and organisations come together to develop and share advanced management practice.

“We enable our students to become more than good managers and great leaders – our programmes equip them with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to make a significant contribution in their roles and in the long-term to play a part in solving some of the most endemic problems faced by individuals, companies and communities.”

We produce graduates of outstanding potential who are able to operate in the most demanding of global business environments and are truly committed to making a difference

AACSB Accreditation Standards require a high quality teaching environment, a commitment to continuous improvement, and curricula responsive to the needs of businesses.

“AACSB Accreditation represents the highest achievement for an educational institution and its college of business. The University of Liverpool’s Management School staff are to be commended for their dedication and commitment to continuous improvement, and for their role in earning initial accreditation.”

Dedication to management education

“It takes a great deal of self evaluation and determination to earn AACSB Accreditation, and I commend the University of Liverpool for its dedication to management education, as well as its leadership in the community.”

“Through accreditation, the University of Liverpool has not only met specific standards of excellence, but has also made a commitment to ongoing improvement to ensure that the institution will continue to deliver high quality education to its students.”
