EQUIS: Re-accreditation for the maximum period of five years

EQUIS, the international system of quality assessment, improvement and accreditation of higher education institutions in management and business administration, has re-accredited Grenoble Ecole de Management (GEM) for 5 years, the maximum time period for which EQUIS issues re-accreditation.

This re-accreditation reaffirms the triple-accredited status of Grenoble Ecole de Management. In addition to EQUIS, the school is also accredited by AACSB and AMBA. Only a few business schools worldwide hold the triple crown accreditation.

Julie Perrin-Halot, Quality director at Grenoble Ecole de Management explains: “The EQUIS peer review team highlighted Grenoble Ecole de Management’s commitment to the EQUIS process, and the progress the School has made since its first EQUIS accreditation in 2000. This re-accreditation is based on the many strengths of Grenoble Ecole de Management and the opportunities it has to make an impact in the next five years.”

Loïck Roche, Dean and Director of Grenoble Ecole de Management, said: “This is the third time that GEM has received this award for the maximum duration. It is a clear indication that we are meeting the quality criteria established by the accreditations and in doing so, remain in strong alignment with our own mission (accompanying corporate performance) and vision (becoming one of the most influential business schools).” 

As stated by EQUIS, “Institutions that are accredited by EQUIS must demonstrate not only high general quality in all dimensions of their activities, but also a high degree of internationalisation. With companies recruiting worldwide, with students choosing to get their education outside their home countries, and with schools building alliances across borders and continents, there is a rapidly growing need for them to be able to identify those institutions in other countries that deliver high quality education in international management.”
