EM Normandie was granted the EQUIS accreditation for 3 years in 2016 by EFMD (European Quality Improvement System), and saw it renewed for yet another 3 years in 2019. Fewer than 200 universities and Business Schools hold this EQUIS hallmark in the world, of which 1% only have been awarded the double AACSB and EQUIS accreditation.
In 2014, the School was granted the US AACSB accreditation (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) for a period of 5 years. This was renewed in 2019 for another 5 years as a result of the renewal process and a peer review.
