EFMD Accreditation

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.
