Official Master-level recognition for our Master in Management

Our Master in Management received official Master-level status (the highest distinction for this type of degree), a highly demanding certification that is delivered by the French Ministry of National Education, Teaching and Research, renewed for a 5-year period and thereby increasing awareness of the degree at the European and international levels. 

To obtain such a certification, BSB was assessed in terms of the quality of its training programmes, teaching approach and faculty, as well as the admissions process, access to employment for its graduates, in-company internships and exchanges abroad. This Master certification is even more important for the worldwide recognition it attributes to the degree, thereby facilitating further study or employment abroad. 

VISA FOR THE BACHELOR MARKETING & BUSINESS (3+ years of undergraduate study, recognised by the State)

The Bachelor Marketing & Business has been awarded the Ministry of National Education, Teaching and Research visa, renewed in 2014 for 5 years.   

A degree that receives such a visa provides access to Master's level studies in universities in France and abroad. It also makes it possible to obtain equivalent-level degrees abroad.
