CASS European Institute of Management Studies (CASS) is an innovative higher education institution with a global academic campus in Paris and an executive development center in Brussels. CASS also has collaborative partnerships with academic institutions in 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 is accredited by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research and is registered with the Ministry's Paris Academy as a private, not-for-profit, higher education institution 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 levels awarded by the institution. The French Ministry of Higher Education and Research recognizes all programs of the institution as higher education programs. One immediate practical advantage of this recognition is that learners 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.
CASS has also been accredited by the Accreditation Service for International Schools, Colleges and Universities (ASIC) UK since 2015. Following the restructuring of the institution in Europe leading to the establishment of its global academic campus in Paris, France a comprehensive inspection visit of its sites was undertaken by the ASIC in November 2016. As a result all the institution's sites in Europe have achieved full accreditation by ASIC with the additional status of "Premier Institution" attributed in recognition of its high quality standards. The accreditation is for the period November 21, 2017 through November 20, 2021. ASIC is recognized by the UKVI in the UK, is a member of CHEA International Quality Group (CIQG) in the USA and is listed in their International Directory, is a member of the BQF (British Quality Foundation), is an affiliate of ENQA (European Network for Quality Assurance) and is an institutional member of EDEN (European Distance and E-Learning Network).
CASS is a member of the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) in the USA and has candidacy status for accreditation of its programs by the organization. The ACBSP is a CHEA (Council for Higher Education Accreditation) recognized specialized business accrediting organization that reviews the quality and integrity of business degree programs. Accreditation by ACBSP is based on an independent evaluation of an institution's business programs by a group of professionals, which include faculty and academic administrators in the field of business education. The ACBSP is an affiliate of ENQA (European Network of Quality Assurance).
The distinguishing feature of CASS is that it provides quality higher education and training in a broad range of disciplines that combine academic rigor with practical relevance. In addition to the education and training activities, the institution also offers learners the opportunity of learning in two major international languages (other than English) thus reflecting and embodying its overall philosophy of preparing executives who are able to operate with ease and efficiency in today's highly competitive global marketplace.
CASS has developed close academic cooperation with partner institutions in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and South America who contribute to course delivery, supervision of thesis projects, as well as joint faculty research and publication.
