"The renewal of the EQUIS accreditation for the maximum duration of 5 years is the recognition of the quality of work provided by each and every one of you, and reinforces our ambitions as set out in our KEDGE 25 strategic plan. This renewal is a tremendous source of satisfaction and motivation to continue to promote a management culture focused on internationalisation, ethics, responsibility and sustainability, as well as engagement with the practical world. It highlights the excellence of the academic and pedagogical levels of our school to continue to be attractive in France and internationally ", says Alexandre de Navailles, Managing Director of KEDGE Business School.
