Audencia Business School confirms itself in the top 2% of Business Schools globally with AMBA re-accreditation

Audencia Business School has officially received re-accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA)one of the world’s leading authorities on post-graduate business education, demonstrating its continuing commitment to excellence in management education.  

Upon receiving AMBA re-accreditation, all current MBA/MBM students and recent MBA/MBM alumni of Audencia Business School are invited to join AMBA’s global member community of more than 50,000 students and alumni in more than 150 countries on a free basis, for networking, thought leadership, career development, and a variety of benefits. 

Accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA) represents the highest standard of achievement in post-graduate business education. Its rigorous assessment criteria ensure that only the highest-calibre programmes which demonstrate the best standards in teaching, curriculum, and student interaction achieve Association of MBAs accreditation.  

Audencia Business School is a prestigious French Business School. AMBA accredits the MBA programmes as the School alongside the Grande École MBM.  

Members of AMBA’s accreditation panel, representing senior management at AMBA-accredited Business Schools globally, commended the School’s commitment to corporate social responsibility, which the panel thought informed both research and teaching at the School.  

The panel noted the certificate programme entitled Maximising Global Performance which is an elective module on the full-time MBA. This online module was designed in collaboration with Boston University in the United States and Tecnologico de Monterrey in Mexico. The panel thought that this was collaborative and distinctive project. 

The School was also said to attract high quality students and that these students left as committed and loyal alumni, who were eminently employable.  

Audencia Business School was also recently re-accredited by EQUIS.  

‘The renewal of these two accreditations rewards the quality of the work that has been carried out by the School’s teams over the past five years,’ explains Audencia Dean, Christophe Germain. ‘It is a great springboard as we prepare to launch our strategic plan. Beyond the results, the preparation for these audits, the discussions with the auditors and the analysis of their feedback, were all very important in enabling us to reflect on future developments at Audencia. The re-accreditation process is not only an evaluation, but also contributes to the improvement and progress of Business Schools.’ 

AMBA accreditation is international in scope and reach, and AMBA works under the belief that accredited programmes should be of the highest standard and reflect changing trends and innovation in post-graduate management education. Its accreditation process reflects this commitment to fostering innovation, and demanding Business Schools to perform at the highest level continually.  

AMBA only accredits the world’s top Business Schools,’ said Andrew Main Wilson, Chief Executive of the Association of MBAs and Business Graduates Association (BGA). Audencia Business School is very prestigious Business School. Its focus on corporate social responsibility is aligned with AMBA & BGA’s values. I am delighted that this School has been re-accredited and look forward to continuing to work alongside it to create an international force for good, championing best practice, responsible management and sustainability.’
