International Accreditation

ESCP is among the first business schools in Europe to have earned the three prestigious labels of excellence from the world’s leading accrediting bodies: EQUIS (1998), AMBA (1998) and AACSB (2003). This triple accreditation has been regularly renewed over the years. In July 2018, the School was proud to announce the renewal of AACSB International accreditation for five additional years.


EQUIS is the European Business School Accreditation from EFMD : an accreditation from EFMD is one of the best and most complete ways to certify the actual quality of a business school. The accreditation processes lead to improvement through the necessity for organisations to meet internationally agreed quality standards. The quality is assessed by Peer Review, which is a form of international benchmarking. Recognition comes through the award of an EFMD accreditation, acknowledged worldwide by potential students, employers, clients and the media.


AACSB provides internationally recognised, specialised accreditation for business and accounting programs at the bachelor's, master's, and doctoral level. The AACSB Accreditation Standards challenge post-secondary educators to pursue excellence and continuous improvement throughout their business programmes. AACSB Accreditation is known, worldwide, as the longest standing, most recognised form of specialised/professional accreditation an institution and its business programmes can earn.


AMBA accreditation is awarded to the best programmes internationally and denotes the highest standard of achievement in postgraduate business education. Students, business schools, graduates and employers all recognise it as a gold standard.
