emlyon business school wants to share this excellent news with its students, graduates and professors as well as its partners. The school is proud to announce that the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD) has renewed our international EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System) accreditation for five years.

This label means that emlyon business school continues to be one of the few business schools worldwide to have triple (EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA) accreditation. Our institution has shown commitment and determination by meeting specific standards of excellence, as well as demonstrating ongoing improvement to ensure it provides the highest quality of education to its participants, coming from all over the world.

The numerous standards and requirements for this accreditation are very exacting. In particular, EQUIS auditors examine the quality of the research programs, relationships with companies, internationalization, impact, ethics, responsibility and sustainability activities and the institution’s strategy.

Graduates who choose to study at an EQUIS accredited school can “be assured they are attending an institution with high international standards of quality, a significant level of internationalization, a balance between high academic (scientific) quality and professional relevance and that the needs of the corporate world are well integrated into the programs, activities and processes. Finally, and most importantly, students can be assured that they will receive international recognition for their qualification, which is extremely important in today's global environment” says the EQUIS Accreditation Board.

“We are very happy and proud that EFMD is continuingly confident in our quality and our development plan. emlyon business school is privileged to receive for the fifth successive time a five-year EQUIS re-accreditation. We are committed to continue to amplify our impact as a top global business school », indicates Professor Tawhid CHTIOUI, Dean of emlyon business school.
