TUM School of Management is the first management school at a German technical university to receive the prestigious Triple Crown Accreditation status, which only about 80 institutions worldwide (about 1%) can call their own.

The newly awarded AACSB accreditation complements the AMBA and EQUIS quality seals already held by the school to form the Triple Crown.

“Receiving the Triple Crown accreditation sets a significant milestone for us.”, says Vice Dean of Executive Education Prof. Dr. Claudia Peus. “The three accreditations, each setting their own criteria, confirm that the Executive Education at TUM School of Management has chosen the right strategy for its leadership and management development. Our evidence-based programs and individualized developmental activities, offer the ideal preparation of our students/participants for meeting the challenges of tomorrow.”

The Triple Crown status confirms that TUM School of Management meets the highest quality standards and has implemented its strategy of providing management education at the interface of management and technology consistently and successfully.

The criteria for Triple Crown status include a highly international approach to teaching and research, high-quality networks of external partners, close links with the business community, highly qualified teaching staff, and high ethical, social responsibility and sustainability standards.

We are very proud that the continuous success of TUM’s executive education and the role of the Executive MBA in Innovation & Business Creation has played in the accreditation committee’s decision.
