“Obtaining AACSB accreditation is a recognition of a continuous quality process undertaken by EMLV over the past several years,” stated Sebastien Tran, Dean of Ecole de Management and Director General of Devinci Higher Education. “This honor bolsters EMLV’s positioning as a business school focused on innovation, research, digital and soft skills.”

AACSB accreditation, an elite distinction for high-quality business schools
The AACSB is the longest-serving global accrediting body for business schools, with a mission to foster engagement, accelerate innovation, and amplify impact in business education. AACSB Accreditation provides a framework of 9 international standards against which business schools around the world assess the quality of their educational offer:
- Strategic planning
- Physical, virtual, and financial resources
- Faculty and professional staff resources
- Assurance of learning
- Learner progression
- Teaching effectiveness and impact
- Impact of scholarship
- Engagement and societal impact
All standards contain an imperative that AACSB-accredited business schools demonstrate a positive impact on society, therefore acting as a force for good.
The school’s mission is at the core of the peer review process and constantly influences its engagement, innovation, and impact. The notion of impact becomes crucial for business schools, which have to articulate and execute their mission in such way so as to make a difference in business and society as well in the global academia community.
Guided by its mission to provide a global and responsible mindset and multidisciplinary skills that address the challenges for sustainable business and digital environments, EMLV strives to drive innovation in teaching and research.
Devinci Higher Education institution draws its inspiration from a unique transversal approach established through the coexistence of three different schools – a school of management (EMLV), a school of engineering (ESILV) and a digital school (IIM) – on the same campus.
EMLV Master in Management, MBA, and MSc programmes aim to nurture a new generation of global leaders ready to innovate and manage complex challenges.
