In 2008, Mannheim Business School became the first institution in the German-speaking region to attain the 'Triple Crown' – a rare honor in the field. Fewer than 1% of the estimated 10,000 business schools worldwide have accreditations from AACSB International, EQUIS and AMBA, the three leading international business school accreditation associations. Each of these three organizations has different focal points in their assessment procedures, but they all have one thing in common: Any school that successfully emerges from their stringent and comprehensive accreditation process can assert with the utmost confidence that it is among the very best institutions for management education in the world. As all of the accreditations are only granted for a certain period of time, they represent a strong and perpetual incentive to ensure continuous quality management.
Mannheim Business School is certified by evalag (Evaluationsagentur Baden-Württemberg) according to Section 33 (2) LHG (university law of the state of Baden-Württemberg).
