Renewal of accreditation by AACSB confirms the appeal and academic excellence of emlyon business school



emlyon business school  is proud to announce that its AACSB accreditation has been renewed for the maximum five-year period.

This reaccreditation, which comes just a few months after a similar renewal by EQUIS, is a great source of pride for the school. In particular, it reflects the work carried out to ensure that our criteria for excellence remain at the very highest level at all our campuses (Paris, Shanghai, Lyon-Ecully, Casablanca, Saint-Éteinne) and for all aspects of our institution: teaching, research, internationalization, the quality of the teaching staff, etc.

The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business highlights the fact that schools with its accreditation have “better programs and more recruiters looking to hire their students"

For Tugrul Atamer, Dean of emlyon business school, “the audit committee observed the impressive progress made by the school over the last five years. The audit team also underlined the innovative nature of our approach to teaching, our campuses and our strategy, and particularly our new shareholder governance model. Given the feedback from these two recent renewals, we are more than ever committed to a process of continuous improvement in terms of quality, while also deploying new programs that foster hybridization at all of our campuses.”

The accreditation, which is valid for five years, was awarded after a series of reports and audits carried out at our institution by experts. The AACSB label enables emlyon business school to remain within a very tight circle of the world’s business schools – the 1% that have the triple accreditation of EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA.
