Accreditation by EFMD is one of the best and most complete ways to certify the effective quality of a business school or corporate university. The same accreditation processes lead to improvement through the need for organizations to meet the internationally agreed quality standards. The quality of each individual school is assessed by Peer Review, a form of international benchmarking. The recognition comes through an accreditation of EFMD, recognized worldwide by potential students, employers, customers and the media: EQUIS accreditation, which confirms that the school’s academic programs and research are top notch with commercial relevance in the real world and global attention.

“At Rome Business School we are aware of the fact that higher education in the contemporary panorama is too static and oriented towards theory, it rarely provides truly effective training: this is what we want to change! To do this, we encourage teachers, staff, students and alumni to be agents of change themselves. We are committed to creating the managers of the future, prepared to bring the world into the era of modernity and progress. Our main focus is to bring students, entrepreneurs, managers and professionals to a level of excellence in their skills and ethical approach to business and work; our aim was to train students so they can make a difference, achieve their goals and make their dreams come true by enriching the business world with innovation and new ideas. Just like a family, Rome Business School offers to the students a practical learning method and network opportunities through placements, social and cultural activities, career coaching sessions, practical experiences and a multicultural environment. The future is our main interest, and we work hard to always provide better career and success opportunities. ”
