These are organized all year long to make international students live the life of an IÉSEG student and discover the French way of life. They also organize trips to French and European cities and regions such as to London, Berlin, Brussels, Reims, Chateaux de la Loire, etc.
The IÉSEG degree is approved by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research, which has also granted it the label “Grade Master”. IÉSEG is a non-profit school under contract with the state.
IÉSEG is the first French post-baccalaureate business school to be accredited by the EQUIS label (European Quality Improvement System).
This label is a reference for excellence and highlights outstanding management schools for the quality of their teaching, their innovations, research and for their relations with the business world.
“Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business“ is an American organization which awarded IÉSEG with the AACSB accreditation in 2013.
AACSB rewards business schools for the quality of their management training, based on the academic level of teachers, the relevance of the educational process and the means implemented to allow students to conduct their studies.
The Association of MBAs uses rigorous assessment criteria to ensure that only highest calibre programs which demonstrate the best standards in teaching, curriculum, and student interaction achieve accreditation. Unlike many business education accreditation bodies it focuses in detail on individual programs (MBAs, DBAs, and Masters in business and management) rather than whole institutions. Three of IÉSEG's programs have been evaluated and accredited by AMBA: its two MBA programs (Executive MBA and International MBA) and its Master of Science in International Business.
By obtaining the Association of MBAs (AMBA) accreditation, IÉSEG School of Management today joins an elite group of international business schools (less than 1% in the world) that hold the "triple crown" of international accreditations (AMBA, AACSB, EQUIS).
