EM Normandie awarded a 3-year EQUIS Accreditation
EM Normandie has been granted a 3-year EQUIS Accreditation. The School has thus achieved a Triple Accreditation status at international level, after having obtained the EPAS Label for its Grande Ecole Programme (Initial Ed) in 2011 (renewed for another 5 years in 2014), and a full AACSB International Accreditation, also in 2014, for 5 years.
By gaining this badge of excellence, the EM Normandie has now joined the select club of 165 universities and management schools accredited by EQUIS in the world.
This is a tribute to its academic model and the intensive quality approach it has engaged in over the last years. The strong relevance to its territory, the quality of its links with the corporate world, the internationalisation of its programmes, its innovative pedagogy as witnessed by the LaSmartEcole® project, the development of its Executive Education programmes, together with the effectiveness of its alumni network, are among the strong points emphasized by the auditors in their Peer Review Report

AACSB International awarded its accreditation to EM Normandie for a period of 5 years in May 2014.

AACSB International auditors pointed out:
- The School's pronounced international orientation,

Regional economic and institutional actors have been impressed by the feedback from the Business Impact Survey carried out by the FNEGE (French Foundation for Management Education).
