Accreditations and Quality 


Kozminski’s  Triple  Crown

Amongst business school accreditations, the most prestigious and difficult to acquire are EQUIS, AMBA, and AACSB (the so-called ‘Triple Crown’ of accreditation). Currently, only 99 business schools globally (less than 1% of all business schools) in the world hold these three accreditations. In 2011, Kozminski University joined this prestigious group.

What does this mean for you? It guarantees that the courses you take at Kozminski are of a high quality and recognized by other educational institutes – and it ensures that a Kozminski diploma is well-recognized in the business world.



The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) is one of the world’s oldest business school accreditation bodies – and currently, less than 6 percent of all business schools in the world hold an AACSB accreditation. Indeed, to date, 874 of the world’s 13,600 business education institutions in 56 countries are accredited by the AACSB. Kozminski University hold this accreditation since 2011.
