Many congratulations to ESSCA School of Management and Politecnico di Milano School of Management, whose courses have been recently certified by EOCCS Online Course Certification System.

Three courses from these two renowned institutions have been awarded EOCCS Certification:

ESSCA Ecole de Management, France
– MOOC: Creative Box

“EOCCS certification for our MOOC “Creative Box” is not only a recognition of the excellent work of ESSCA’s Institute of Advanced Pedagogy, but an encouragement for further steps,” said Samir Ayoub, Dean of ESSCA School of Management“We congratulate EFMD for providing this international benchmark, and we appreciated the very straightforward peer-review process, which is perfectly in line with the philosophy of providing expert feedback for further improvement. Most importantly, we are happy to join the emerging, yet already dynamic EOCCS community on the future of online learning. Exchange on best practices and shared expertise will provide precious input into our overall teaching and learning strategy.”

Andrea Sianesi, Dean of MIP Politecnico di Milano Graduate School of Business said about the achievement: “The School of Management of Politecnico di Milano is extremely proud of its EOCCS certification, the first awarded in Italy. We firmly believe that digital technology can totally change the way we approach the education, training and continuous development offered to managers and executives. We were the first to teach an EMBA in digital learning, our Flex EMBA, recognised by AMBA to be among the six most innovative EMBA courses in the world, because students acquire the same skills and make the same personal connections as if they were taking a traditional Master, while they also enjoy the benefits of the most advance technology.”

“Online learning is now central to all of our Masters and courses, including those offered to companies. Receiving this EOCCS certification is a further acknowledgment for the School, coming closely on the heels of the Financial Times’s 2017 rankings, which listed the School among the best business schools in Europe for the ninth year in a row, and of the prestigious QR ranking, which placed us 20th in world for our international Master in Business Analytics and Big Data.”

“We would like to warmly congratulate both institutions for the tremendous work they put into the development of their online courses and for the completion of the certification process. EOCCS gives online courses within universities, business schools, corporate learning organisations and public agencies a top international quality benchmark in the online learning landscape, strengthening not only their market positioning but also allowing for critical self-reflection and peer assessment,” added Anne Swanberg, EOCCS Director.

The system is open to any institution delivering online business and/or management-related courses that are stand-alone or constitute part of a certificate or a programme.

With 38 certified courses from 13 institutions, EOCCS has built an international quality benchmark for online courses worldwide. If you would like further information or are interested in your online course taking part, please visit the EOCCS website or contact
