Toulouse Business School is part of a prestigious group of international business schools that hold the “triple crown” of accreditation – EQUIS, AMBA, and AACSB. This accomplishment has been achieved by only 1% of business schools in the world. These accreditations are a global benchmark of quality awarded by independent international bodies based on several years of audits and quality assurance standards.

What do accreditations mean for you?
As a student at an accredited business school, you have assurance that your degree will be recognized throughout the world as upholding the highest international standard for business education.
