Triple accreditation, also known as Triple Crown Accreditation, is the combination of accreditations granted by the three largest and most influential business school accreditation bodies, which are AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA. Even though these organizations originated in different parts of the world, they all strive to improve global quality of business education.

AACSB (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business-United States) focuses on the quality of the school’s faculty in teaching and research, the consistency of the school’s programs with its mission, and the achievement of learning outcomes promised to the school’s students. It also certifies that the school’s strategic development is sustainable and appropriately resourced.

AMBA (The Association of MBAs -United Kingdom) judges the quality of a business school’s strategy, mission, faculty, students, curriculum, and assessment.

EQUIS – (European Quality Improvement System – European Union) evaluates a business school’s governance, strategy, programs, students, faculty, research and development, executive education, contribution to the community, resources and administration, internationalization, and corporate connections.

Grenoble Ecole de Management is one of the few business schools (1% of schools worldwide) to possess the three accreditations. These three accreditations are international recognitions of the quality of the organization, its programs and the degrees it delivers. They provide an independent assessment of the quality of the School’s organizational processes, ensuring that the content and quality of the programs delivered satisfy established international standards.
