In 10 years, an exceptional dynamic has raised EDHEC educational experience to the highest international standards, with globally recognized teaching, expertise and centres of excellence
Out of 14,000 establishments worldwide, EDHEC is one of just 89 business schools having the EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA Triple Crown Accreditation. Moreover, 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 recognize 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.
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.
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.
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 Business School obtained the renewal of its EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System) accreditation in October 2020, once again for the maximum period of five years, thus extending its unbroken recognition to over 20 years. It comes in the wake of last year’s third consecutive AACSB re-accreditation, which cemented EDHEC’s status as one of the rare business schools around the world (less than 1%) to be triple-accredited by AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA, a distinction it has held since 2004.
