A number of institutions review and monitor Frankfurt School of Finance & Management and the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. This is important. University education is complex and it is difficult for outsiders (which most potential students are by definition) to assess the quality of an institution or program. Independent organizations that accredit or rank institutions can help.


Frankfurt School and the Bachelor in Business Administration hold different accreditations awarded by public and non-profit entities. Of those, AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA are the most important international seals of excellence for business schools. Only ninety institutions worldwide hold the coveted “Triple Crown” accreditation, including four in Germany. Other “Triple Crown” business schools in Germany are ESMT Berlin, Mannheim Business School, and TUM School of Management.
