EQUIS Standards and Guidance: Updates 2022

EFMD revises the documentation supporting EQUIS periodically.  QED’s overview of the updates made as part of the 2022 publication, together with an assessment of the significance of the change can be found in this downloadable PDF file.

There are no significant changes published as at 28 February 2022.  Instead, the revised Standards and Criteria includes additional guidance on assessing Ethics, Responsibility and Sustainability. Institutions within the accreditation process OR preparing for re-accreditation are advised to review this guidance.

NB: This document represents QED’s interpretation of the EQUIS Updates.  We recommend that you view the updated document directly – which is available from EFMD’s website:
