Alfons Sauquet, Quality Services & EQUIS Director, said: “In the fast-moving French competitive landscape, we are happy to see the school growing in terms of internationalisation of the faculty composition and student body, and also in terms of research and the offer of apprenticeships. MBS is a school that provides relevant education to the local community and the corporate world.”
The Peer Review Team wants to commend the school’s senior management for sustaining and fostering an internal culture that certainly is a very good basis for the school’s further development.
Bruno Ducasse, Dean of Montpellier Business School, commented: “The EQUIS accreditation is an honouring and humbling recognition of MBS’s original strategy, which combines academic quality meeting the highest global standards with the strive for building an economy and a society that are more socially opened and responsible.”
EQUIS accreditation ensures a rigorous quality improvement process, benchmarking the school against international standards in terms of governance, programmes, students, faculty, research, and foremost, internationalisation, ethics, responsibility and sustainability, as well as connections with practice. There are currently no substitutes for such an in-depth assessment of quality and all the schools should be commended for their commitment to excellence.
