Academic recognition

SKEMA is EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System) accredited by EFMD (European Foundation for Management Development). These accreditations bear witness to the high quality of faculty and research at SKEMA as well as the school’s international dimension and relationship with the business community.

SKEMA was one of the very first to obtain the brand new ‘EFMD Accredited Programme’ label in November 2019 for its Global Executive MBA programme. The EFMD team of auditors underlined that this programme develops all the advantages of the ‘glocal’ model of SKEMA: unique multicultural dimension thanks to the 7 campuses, understanding of the challenges of globalisation and digitalisation of the economy - and finally internationalisation of the cohort as well as the course and content of the curriculum.

SKEMA is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). AACSB accreditation evaluates the excellence of an institution, and in particular the academic level of its faculty, the quality of its programmes, the relevance of its strategy and the means to implement it.

SKEMA is accredited by the Global Accreditation Center (GAC®) from the Project Management Institute®. This accreditation was awarded in 2005 and has been renewed this year until 2019 in recognition of the school’s track record in training for project management. SKEMA is the first business school to have received this international accreditation in France. Only 40 academic institutions have the accreditation in the world.
