As an institution for higher education, EM Strasbourg must be in constant search of ways to improve its practices. This quest is what guarantees external recognitions, which boost the School’s attractiveness and promote its development. To structure its approach, the School has earned itself a number of international accreditations and national quality labels that enable it to monitor its progress. This entails self-assessing our methods in order to pinpoint the drivers of action that lead the School toward excellence.

AACSB Accreditation

Since 2015, EM Strasbourg has held the American accreditation AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business). Its evaluation is based on various criteria such as faculty qualifications, the extent of resources deployed, and the relevance of the educational approach. The Peer Review Team applauded EM Strasbourg’s strategy, especially with respect to the School’s leadership and three values pathway, and highlighted the drive and commitment of the School’s teaching and administrative teams.


EPAS Accreditation

In 2009, EM Strasbourg’s Programme Grande École received EPAS accreditation by the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD). This accreditation recognizes outstanding programs in management and has been renewed in 2012 and 2017 for a five-year period. The strengths of EM Strasbourg identified during its evaluation notably include its personal development program, research culture, mandatory international exchange for all students, high degree of autonomy and staff professionalism.


Diversity Label

nullIn 2012, EM Strasbourg positioned itself as the first public institution in higher education to acquire the Diversity Label. Renewed in 2016 for a period of four years, the quality label is a testament to the implementation of measures relating to equal opportunity and antidiscrimination in a process of promoting diversity. This quality label concerns all grounds of discrimination prohibited by law and encompasses all of the School’s activities.


Qualicert Label

Created by the IAE network, the Qualicert label is specific to “Universities providing teaching and research activities in the field of management”. It comprises about a hundred commitments to improve student services. EM Strasbourg was first granted the Qualicert label in 2010, following an audit conducted by the Société Générale de Surveillance, an independent certification body. Since then, EM Strasbourg seeks to continue its move towards excellence, reinforce its identity, and guarantee full transparency as well as high quality courses to all stakeholders involved. The Qualicert label was renewed in May 2019 for a three-year duration.
