The Global Bachelor of Business Administration of emlyon business school (a higher education degree in international management - bac+4, level 6), is one of the few BBA programs in France to have been granted the “grade de licence” by the Commission d'Évaluation des Diplômes et des Formations de Gestion (CEFDG).

Indeed, in order to honor the most challenging Bachelorprograms, theCEFDG, which already assesses the bac+3 and bac+4 degrees, is endowed with a new mission, which is to grant the “grade de licence” to the programs complying with high-quality criteria.

emlyon's Global BBA was most particularly distinguished for the following:

  • Students' initiation to research issues and methods over the 4 years of the program, with a front-tier Faculty;
  • Strong partnerships and collaborations bothin research and teachingswith institutions on every campus, and in particular in Saint-Etienne and Paris;
  • The globalization of the program allowed notably by the multi-site strategy of the School;
  • The professionalization of the degree, as the program is strongly implemented in the socio-economy world.
  • The policy of professional integration and success which allows our Global BBA graduates to access the highest jobs or to continue studying in the best schools in France and abroad.
Isabelle Huault, President of the Executive President and Dean of emlyon business school

For our Global BBA, this "grade de licence"constitutes a solid recognition of the School's academic excellence by the CEFDG. emlyon is proud of this mark of trust, crucial for both our professors and all our students.
