PSB first France B-School to land BGA accreditation

Paris School of Business – PSB – has become the first business school in France to receive accreditation from the Business Graduates Association.

In addition, PSB announced that it has also been re-accredited by the Association of MBAs.

A key area of praise for PSB from the AMBA and BGA panel assessing the accreditation was the extent of the employer connections that the school provided to its students.

AMBA and BGA commend PSB leadership as ‘professional’ and ‘passionate’

In their evaluation of PSB, the AMBA and BGA assessors commended the leadership team of the business school, reporting them to be ‘professional, passionate and modest’.

In a statement, Andrew Main Wilson, Chief Executive of AMBA & BGA, congratulated PSB for this achievement:

“I am delighted to welcome Paris School of Business to the BGA network and would like to congratulate the School for being the first Business School in France to become BGA accredited.

“The School has demonstrated a commitment to the learning experience of students, especially with the strong ties it has to the corporate world.”

AMBA network only accredits the top 2% of the world’s business schools

Paris School of Business offers programmes at undergraduate, post-graduate and doctoral levels, in the field of business and management.

The institution currently has over 4,000 students, and over 15,000 alumni across the globe. Not only is PSB the first in France to receive BGA accreditation, but the AMBA network only accredits the top 2% of the world’s business schools.

Armand Derhy, former Dean and Director of PSB (2009-2020) and current Chairman of the School’s Board of Governors, expressed his delight at the institution’s dual accreditation.

“After obtaining the AMBA accreditation in 2014 for our MBM programme and in 2016 for our MBA programme, the joint AMBA/BGA accreditation confirms Paris School of Business’s position of academic excellence.

“These awards are the culmination of our successfully implemented Horizon 2020 strategy plan, aimed at establishing the Institution as one of the best Business Schools in the world. Furthermore, they strengthen our long-standing successful collaboration with the Association of MBAs.”
