ISC Paris receives its first EPAS accreditation


Seven months after the ISC Paris Master in Management earned AMBA accreditation, the program has now been accredited by EPAS, for the maximum accreditation term of five years.

After earning accreditation from AACSB in 2017 and AMBA in September 2019, ISC Paris’ Grande Ecole program has now been accredited by EPAS for the first time, and for the maximum accreditation term of five years. ISC Paris Grande Ecole is the first independent business and management school to earn these three accreditations, joining an elite group of 18 French business schools accredited by EFMD, AACSB, and AMBA.

The EFMD (European Foundation for Management Development) awards the EPAS seal (EFMD Programme Accreditation System) to a program after an audit based on various criteria, such as the program’s role and positioning within the school, the program’s structure and resources, its professors, teaching methods, learning objectives, evaluation and recruitment procedures, international reputation, and its graduates’ career paths.

This third accreditation is excellent news, because it will strengthen ISC Paris’ international reputation, enhance its graduates’ career prospects, and accelerate its ambitious international strategy.

“We’re very proud of this incredible accomplishment by all of ISC Paris’ stakeholders, earning an initial five-year EPAS accreditation for our Grande Ecole program. We sincerely thank EFMD, their experts, and our peers, who know how to rigorously and properly evaluate the program’s strengths and areas for improvement. It’s very rare to earn an initial five-year accreditation, and we promise to live up to the display of trust that it represents. This encourages us to keep up our efforts to improve the quality and excellence of our programs.”
