BBA: The Only EPAS Accredited Program in Africa

Al Akhawayn University’s Business Administration Program has been awarded a five-year EPAS* accreditation by EFMD. This achievement marks the School of Business Administration as the only EPAS Accredited BA Program in Africa.


EPAS is an international program accreditation system operated by EFMD that evaluates the quality of business management programs with an international perspective. The EPAS evaluation process is immersive and involves a close evaluation of factors including the program’s process of course design, its objectives and learning outcomes, its curriculum content, its balance between international focus, academic theory, and experiential learning, the resources allocated by the institution to support the program, and the quality of the program’s faculty and alumni. The review performed by the EPAS approved AUI’s Business Administration Program for a five-year accreditation, confirming its strong institutional environment that emphasizes academic rigor, practical relevance, and an international focus.


This great mark of confidence from the EFMD signifies the quality of education achieved by the SBA, an education enriched by students, faculty, staff, and alumni.
