IAE AIX reaccredited EQUIS in 2012
What is the secret to IAE Aix success?
… or how does the leading French university business school manage to defy the rules and develop an alternative and efficient international model which puts it among the best management schools in the world?
“AIX-EN-PROVENCE”, France, 13th February 2013 – The IAE Aix is the Graduate School of Management of the Aix-Marseille University (70,000 students, located in France).
As the premier French public business school and accredited EQUIS since 1999, the IAE Aix invented and has developed, since its creation in 1955, a unique model based on its audacious strategy: internationalization, innovation and career placement, putting personal and professional student expectations at the heart of the system.
« We stand behind strong values » explains Patrick Rousseau, IAE Aix Dean, « A public service mission which combines diversity, responsibility and ethics and plays itself out in the implementation of innovative international programmes, personalised guidance support services such as those of the Corporate & Career Services Centre, and putting into place alliances and international partnerships ».
The IAE Aix has succeeded in creating an institution considered by the auditors of the EFMD (European Foundation for Management Development) as original, with strengths that go beyond the basic standards required for EQUIS accreditation. Most notably are the strategy of internationalization, the spirit of innovation and creativity which drive the entire IAE Aix community, the quality of relationships with academic and corporate partners, and the fulfilment of students.
In assuring a student/professor ratio that exceeds numerous other establishments and training delivered more that 50% in English, the IAE Aix has managed to place itself among the best European management schools.
In conclusion, the EFMD has renewed EQUIS accreditation for the IAE Aix for 3 years. AMU President, Yvon Berland clarifies, “The IAE Aix plays a principal role in the international ambitions which my presidency should bring to the largest university in the French-speaking world.”
