SKEMA has three world-class academic accreditations:

AACSB provides internationally recognised, specialised accreditation for business and accounting programmes at the bachelor's, master's, and doctoral level. Accreditation is a voluntary, non-governmental process that includes a rigorous external review of a school's mission, faculty qualifications, curricula, and ability to provide the highest-quality programmes.

EFMD Quality Improvement System is one of the leading international systems of quality assessment, improvement and accreditation of business schools. EQUIS is a comprehensive quality review system for business and management schools. Its rigorous peer-review process signals the school's overall quality, viability and self-improvement commitment to students, employers, and academic partners worldwide. This internationally acknowledged label is often a prerequisite for entry to rankings.

EFMD programme accreditation is the most thorough programme accreditation system for business and/or management degrees and courses, including face-to-face, blended and online provisions. It constitutes a benchmark for what is considered an internationally recognised and peer-reviewed programme. SKEMA holds this accreditation for its Global Executive MBA programme.
