PSB Paris School of Business obtains AMBA Accreditation

PSB Paris School of Business obtains AMBA Accreditation


Just about to celebrate 40 years, PSB Paris School of Business has obtained AMBA accreditation for the next three years which makes it the first independent elitist grande école to earn this prestigious label.

Following two years of procedures, PSB Paris School of Business has joined the very small circle of AMBA accredited French management grande écoles. In fact, only 7 of them have the privilege of claiming AMBA accreditation in the MBM (Master in Business Management) category: EM Lyon, HEC Paris, ESCP Europe, Telecom École de Management, Kedge Business School, Audencia Nantes School of Management and Grenoble Graduate School of Business.

AMBA accreditation is awarded by the Association of MBAs, the international organisation that guarantees the quality of the academic standards applied to Master of Business Administration (MBA) programmes and Masters programmes (MBM). This international label is awarded based on a strict assessment of the content of the programmes, the level of the teaching staff, the qualifications and honours of the students admitted, controls of the knowledge gained and a follow-up of the participants/graduates. Upon receiving AMBA accreditation for 3 years, PSB Paris School of Business became the 1st independent grande école to be awarded one of the 3 international accreditations: the triple crown (AACSB, EQUIS, AMBA).
This success tops off the excellent start of the 2014-2015 school year at PSB Paris School of Business with 750 newly admitted students, 500 post-Bac students (via the Link competition) and 250 higher degree-holding students (via the Ambitions+ competition). PSB Paris School of Business is the top choice of candidates taking both exams. This result confirms the strong attraction of PSB Paris School of Business in the French management grande École market.

In summary, 2014, the year PSB Paris School of Business is celebrating 40 years of existence, is a turning point as besides obtaining AMBA international accreditation, the school has just moved to the 1st Parisian Campus Cluster, explains Armand DERHY, Executive Director of the school. This new campus will bring schools and partner enterprises with offices on site together to work on the topic of innovation. It will be presented in November with a press event.

PSB Paris School of Business now has all of the characteristics to reinforce its national and international projection.
