'We are proud of being the first business school in Asia mentored by an EDAF team. Three years of mentoring in Beijing Jiaotong University tells a wonderful story of an old Chinese business school fitting in with global business education standards. The EDAF mentoring system has assured us on a safe way towards EQUIS accreditation without detour.'
