Only a Few Schools Can Wear Three Crowns at Once: Burgundy School of Business is One of Them

Burgundy School of Business (BSB) has recently been adorned with the triple crown. The school with the most significant increase in the past 10 years in France and 62nd ranked according to Financial Times is now in the top 1% of business schools worldwide.

As the No. 3 Grande Ecole based on students’ satisfaction and alumni, BSB is now highly respected by educational institutions and recognized far beyond France. Therefore, it has become a top destination for undergraduate and graduate studies. Located in Dijon, Lyon, and Paris, BSB offers a high-quality education for those with a global business orientation or wine lovers.

Many international schools have a variety of rankings and are at the top. What specifically does triple accreditation mean for business schools, and what is its value? You can find if you continue reading this article.


What Does Triple Crown Stand for?

Triple Crown is triple accreditation of a school achieved by each of the following three most respected accreditation organizations:

  • The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB);
  • The Association of MBAs (AMBA); and
  • EFMD Quality Improvement System (EQUIS).

Triple crown privilege holds only 124 universities worldwide as of June 21st this year. Accreditation guarantees that students will study the most relevant program and material in the chosen field. It also ensures that those students will become effective leaders.

What is worth mentioning is that the accreditation, once obtained, is not for granted. The school should reaccredit once every 3-5 years. This step also guarantees the program is improved and meets the latest global expectations.


The Top Three Most Respectful Accreditation Organizations Globally

If you are not in the business education world yet, you are probably wondering who these organizations are and what the value of this triple accreditation is. Let’s find out!

AACSB is a non-governmental American professional organization established in 1916. Over a century, AACSB’s primary activity has been providing thorough accreditations to the best business schools. Through this, AACSB achieves its goal of creating the next generation of great leaders. While over 1.900 universities are members of this association, not all are accredited.

AMBA is a British association established in 1967. This London-based, highly respected association, similar to AACSB, focuses on the MBA accreditation of international business schools after rigorous assessment. AMBA is committed to raising business education’s profile and quality standards internationally. Moreover, AMBA is the only professional membership association that connects MBA students and graduates worldwide and builds an international force for good, championing best practices, responsible management, and sustainability.

EQUIS is the third most crucial institution for accreditation worldwide. As the youngest one, founded in 1972, this membership-driven non-profit organization is dedicated to management development. For a short time, EQUIS became recognized globally as a relevant body for the accreditation of business schools, their programs, and corporate universities. EQUIS plays an essential role in shaping the global approach to management education and building an international study environment.

And now, imagine that you study in a school that has passed the high and rigorous requirements of all three organizations and got accredited by each. What a challenge and privilege to study in such a university!

Luckily, your imagination can become a reality. Among those 124 Triple Crown universities, some are available and can be affordable for you. Burgundy School of Business is one of them.


BSB Accompanies Triple Crown Schools

BSB has recently won accreditations from AACSB, EQUIS, and AMBA and joined the very exclusive club of business schools. Out of 15.000 world business schools, BSB joined the 124 schools, less than 1% with this triple prestigious international accreditation.

This achievement was completed after a decade of dedicated work:

  • 2014 – AASB accreditation;
  • 2016 – EQUIS accreditation;
  • 2023 – AMBA accreditation.

Triple Crown is a recognition of the hard work and dedicated BSB staff to build:

  • Academic excellence;
  • Corporate and alumni networks;
