No, Alfred Ford School of Management awards the same MBA degree as any other onsite program. The only difference is the mode of delivery.
As IPE is a French Government approved institution that provides us accreditation, our diploma is officially recognised. Based on it, our students are applying for further studies in their countries but, ultimately, it is the relevant organisation who is making a decision.
If you have plans to apply for further education (like Ph.D.) we recommend that you check with the desired institution whether the curriculum of your MBA studies (Alfred Ford’s or with any other MBA program) meets their specific requirements.
The first group of students was admitted in April 2017. There are six intakes per year as our admission process is based on rolling admission – you can start your studies with any of the modules!
At Alfred Ford, we accept applications year-round – the admission process is based on rolling admission, 6 times a year, so you can start with any upcoming module. For starting dates of modules please follow this link.
