EQUAL is a European forum which works towards a common understanding, formulating opinions and guidelines about quality assurance and development in higher business and management education. It is an umbrella network acting primarily as a think-tank to promote quality enhancement and synchronisation.

EQUAL is a unique platform where national, regional and international business school associations and quality assurance agencies work together to systematically exchange views and insights into trends, developments, best practices in business and management education. Primary stakeholders being quality assurance agencies, business school associations and business schools, EQUAL’s impact is ultimately geared towards students, employers and policymakers.


Through the EQUAL network we get a chance to not only meet and discuss with colleagues from around the world, but also to guide business education towards a better tomorrow.

Juuso Leivonen, Secretary General, Association of Business Schools Finland
