What is accreditation?

Accreditation is a mark of excellence for Business Schools and is awarded by a national or international independent accrediting body.

ICN Business School holds accreditation from the French quality assurance agency CEFDG (the National Commission for the Evaluation of Training and Qualifications in Management), AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) and EQUIS (European Foundation for Management Development). They constitute formal recognition, based on rigorous quality standards, and demonstrates the quality of all of ICN's activities: education, research and partnerships.

The importance of accreditations

Accreditation guarantees the teaching quality and international outlook of ICN for future students and graduates, and indicates the school's unique positioning: its #ArtTechnologyManagement teaching philosophy. As well as being important for business, this positioning adds value to students in terms of employability.

Accreditation shows that the knowledge and skills that students develop on our courses are directly relevant to the world of business, and demonstrates the quality of the teaching faculty (research professors and professionals from the socio-economic world). The teaching faculty ensures that course content constantly evolves in line with the current issues faced by businesses.

Through this transparent process of regular external evaluation, accreditations increase the trust of all our partners: businesses, partner universities and public organisations.
