AACSB or Equis accreditations induce changes in the management processes of business schools. They have also other impacts, may be more important, on their markets and recruitment. Such accreditations strengthen the brand and make recruitment easier. RICS accreditation does not concern the whole business school but only real estate dedicated programs. Even if the aim is different, consequences on teaching quality and assessment of the students may be similar. Qualification is attractive for recruitment. To some extent the value of the diploma is improved by associated qualifications. More generally partnerships between îstandardsî organisations as RICS or CFA and business schools may have positive consequences on the quality of recruitment both for business schools and employers. The example of ESSEC Business School will be used to illustrate these considerations.
