Accreditations & labels

EQUIS accreditation

EquisIÉSEG is the first French post-baccalaureate business school to be 5-year accredited by the EQUIS label (European Quality Improvement System).

This label is a reference for excellence and highlights outstanding management schools for the quality of their teaching, their innovations, research and for their relations with the business world.

AACSB accreditation

aacsb“Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business “is an American organization, which awarded IÉSEG with the AACSB accreditation in 2013 and re-accreditated for 5 more years in 2018.

AACSB rewards business schools for the quality of their management training, based on the academic level of teachers, the relevance of the educational process and the means implemented to allow students to conduct their studies.


AMBA accreditation


By obtaining the Association of MBAs (AMBA) accreditation, IÉSEG School of Management today joins an elite group of international business schools (less than 1% in the world) that hold the “triple crown” of international accreditations (AMBA, AACSB, EQUIS).

The Association of MBAs uses rigorous assessment criteria to ensure that only highest calibre programs which demonstrate the best standards in teaching, curriculum, and student interaction achieve accreditation. Unlike many business education accreditation bodies it focuses in detail on individual programs (MBAs, DBAs, and Masters in business and management) rather than whole institutions. Three of IÉSEG’s programs have been evaluated and accredited by AMBA: its two MBA programs (Executive MBA and International MBA) and its Master of Science in International Business.
