IAE Nice Graduate School of Management is proud to announce that it has been awarded the Business Graduate Association Validation on March, 2021. With this achievement, IAE Nice Graduate School of Management has reached a significant milestone in its journey to obtain international recognition.

IAE Nice has become the first University School in France to be validated by the Business Graduates Association (BGA), demonstrating its positive impact on students and society, and by respecting international quality standards. To achieve Validation, Schools are required to demonstrate they are acting in accordance with nine principles set out in the BGA Charter, and have a strategic plan on how they can further improve against each principle.
BGA Validation is the final stepping stone towards IAE Nice BGA Accreditation.

Validation allows Business Schools to demonstrate integrity and strong advancement in areas of continuous improvement, innovation, graduate employability, sustainability and social responsibility.
