Degree recognition

The business programs at Business School Lausanne are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACSBSP), an accreditation organization for business education officially recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). The ACBSP accreditation covers business programs from approximately 2’400 higher education institutions internationally. In the United States, CHEA is officially entitled to list accredited programs, including those at Business School Lausanne.

In Europe, each country has set up its own national academic information center (NARIC), which lists officially recognized institutions within a particular country. In Switzerland, the Swiss CRUS (Rectors’ Conference of Swiss Universities, a state‐owned institution) currently lists only Swiss state‐owned universities. Thus, leading private institutions such Business school Lausanne are not included. It should be noted that BSL is listed in the U.S. National Academic Recognition Information Center through CHEA.
