IÉSEG and its programs are recognized in France by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research and the Conférence des Grandes Ecoles. This recognition serves as a guarantor for the School’s excellence.
IÉSEG holds the “Triple Crown” of international accreditations: EQUIS, AACSB, and AMBA, and is part of a limited circle of the best business schools worldwide (less than 1%). These accreditations certify IÉSEG’s excellence according to very strict international standards.

EQUIS accreditation

IÉSEG 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


“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.

Six of IÉSEG’s programs have been evaluated and accredited by AMBA: its Grande École Program, its three MBA programs (Executive MBA, International MBA and MBA in Leadership and Coding) and its Master in International Business.
