Our Accreditations

The Telfer School of Management is one of only 2 business schools in Canada and in the top 1% of business schools in the world to have achieved the triple crown of accreditations.

International business school accreditations ensure that students are receiving a top quality education.  An accredited institution attracts not only higher quality students but it also provides great research opportunities, and allows for global recognition.

The Telfer School of Management at the University of Ottawa is accredited by the following organizations:



AACSB International accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. The Telfer School of Management received AACSB accreditation in 2003.


The Association for MBAs (AMBA) is a UK-based organization that promotes high-quality graduate education in business. AMBA accreditation confirms that a school's MBA is both of the highest quality and relevant to the changing world of business. The Telfer School of Management was accredited by AMBA in 2005.


EQUIS, run by the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD), is the leading international system of quality assessment, improvement and accreditation of higher education institutions in management and business administration. Its fundamental objective is to raise the standard of management education worldwide. The Telfer School of Management received EQUIS accreditation in 2009.
