Accréditation EPASEFMD Accredited PhD


The international accreditation processes implemented by the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD) represent powerful levers for the continuous improvement of the TSM training offer and contribute to the international visibility of our institution.

Internationally recognized by students, employers and the media, EFMD is the leading accreditation for business and management schools. Awarded following rigorous review and auditing processes by higher education and management professionals, this label underlines the academic excellence, practical usefulness, international openness, ethics and social responsibility of a training programme.

The Master in International Management has held this accreditation since 2008. It was renewed in April 2019 for a 5-year period. 

In June 2020, the Master in Finance and the Doctoral Programme received the EFMD Accreditation for the maximal 5-year period. Only about ten Masters in Finance are EFMD Accredited in the world. The TSM Doctoral Programme is the only programme to be EFMD Accredited at the doctoral level.

Developed by EFMD and FNEGE, the Business School Impact System (BSIS) is the first comprehensive impact assessment tool for business and management schools. It identifies the tangible and intangible benefits that the school brings to its local environment.

The BSIS label is awarded following an audit that examines the educational, financial and societal impact of the school at national and regional level, as well as its impact on business development, the regional ecosystem, the image of the region and the impact of its intellectual production.

The awarding of the BSIS label confirms the strong and positive anchoring of TSM in the city of Toulouse and the Occitanie region.
