"We are EQUIS accredited"


 BSB has been awarded the prestigious international accreditation

 

The EFMD (European Foundation for Management Development) has awarded Burgundy School of Business its prestigious EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System) accreditation, for a period of 3 years. Along with its 2014 AACSB accreditation, BSB has solidified its ranking among the best French and international business schools.

BSB has subsequently become the 125th top business school in the world to have the dual AACSB/EQUIS accreditation. The EQUIS accreditation is the result of a long and rigorous auditing process which assesses an establishment's adherence to high academic standards, set by the EFMD.

EQUIS therefore assesses all of the dimensions and components of an institution including its strategy, degree programmes, teaching methods, research, international focus and its networks (corporate and alumni in particular). This accreditation is the culmination of several years of dedicated work from BSB and its community, its students and its alumni, as well as its partners.

This international recognition brings an end to BSB's exceptional 2016, which has included making Burgundy School of Business its official name and receiving a new legal status (EESC), in addition to acquiring new campuses in Beaune and Dijon dedicated to wine and spirits management and entrepreneurship.
