Recognition and Accreditation

CASS EUROPEAN INSTITUTE OF MANAGEMENT STUDIES (CASS Europe in abbreviation) is an innovative higher education Institution with a global academic campus in Paris and an executive development center in Brussels. It also has collaborative partnerships with academic institutions in Ghana, Taiwan, and Chile where its programs are currently being delivered. These activities are a correct reflection of the Institution’s European and international character.

CASS Europe is accredited and registered with the Paris Academy of the French Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation as a private, not-for-profit, higher education institution (Etablissement privé d’enseignement supérieur libre) which is legally authorized to provide higher education in business, management, and other fields leading to Anglo-Saxon type qualifications at Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Doctoral (PhD) levels awarded by the Institution. All programs of the Institution are recognized by the French Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation as higher education programs. One immediate practical advantage of this recognition is that its students in France have the same entitlement to relevant social security benefits as those at public institutions. The Institution is directly under the administrative supervision of the Paris Academy of the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research.
