Triple international accreditation

EDHEC is one of the world’s first business schools to have been awarded the two foremost international accreditations, EQUIS and AACSB, for its activities.

These international accreditations recognise the academic excellence of its programmes, the quality of its teaching faculty, its close links with businesses, and the involvement of the EDHEC Business School in the economic environment of its campuses.

 


Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB)

The AACSB brings together the top management education professionals. After a lengthy evaluation, its accreditation is awarded to those institutions that demonstrate training compliant with strict specifications such as student recruitment process, academic level of teachers, evaluation processes and teaching methods used. EDHEC obtained AACSB accreditation in March 2004.

Association of MBAs (AMBA)

Guaranteeing quality and international recognition of the diploma, the AMBA introduces a standard for MBA-type programmes, whether full or part time. The association evaluates the organising institution, the content and timing of programmes, the level of the teaching faculty, the curriculum for students admitted, monitoring of graduates, the knowledge they have acquired and their new value on the market. EDHEC obtained this accreditation in 2003.

European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS)

This accreditation system EQUIS is specific to business and management schools. Coordinated by the European Foundation for Management Development based in Brussels, it aims to promote academic excellence, educational innovation, close relations between the School and businesses and international scope. EDHEC obtained this distinction in 1999, in recognition of the work carried out for the community, in student services, governance, relations with businesses and the internationalisation of its programmes and teachings.

MON IMPACT SUR LE LEADERSHIP

Le programme EDHEC Executive MBA m’a donné un socle de solides compétences pour conduire et fédérer une équipe. Il m’a aidé à avoir une approche globale, à décider avec discernement. Il m’a apporté de la prise de hauteur, du recul et révélé mon type de leadership. J’essaye aujourd’hui, dans mon management, de faire émerger le potentiel de chacun. J’ai aussi pris conscience de la nécessité d’apprendre sans cesse, de cultiver la formation."
