Accreditations

Toulouse Business School is amongst the 1% of prestigious international business schools which hold the “triple crown” of accreditation: AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS.

What do accreditations mean for you?
These accreditations are a global benchmark of quality and ensure that your degree will be recognized throughout the world. They serve as official confirmation of the quality of our organization, our faculty and staff, our programs and the degrees we deliver. Essentially, it means that:

  • Programs are up-to-date and meet current business needs.
  • Programs are delivered by a qualified faculty.
  • Degrees are internationally recognized and meet international standards.
  • Companies recognise the quality of our degrees.
  • As an institution, and through our programs, we are committed to quality and continuous improvement.

In other words, when we talk about our high quality standards and global reputation..... you don’t just have to take our word for it!
