> 2017 BSIS Report  :iaelyon main impacts on its region. 

Created and developed by the FNEGE (the French Foundation for Management Education) in partnership with the EFMD, the Management Development Network the study aims at assessing the scope and the nature of the impacts of a School of Management on its local environment – the city or the region in which it is located. It is not only about assessing the direct impacts financially speaking but also identifying all the activities of a School that contribute to the development of its environment. Such an approach is complementary to existing accreditation systems considering that it does not aim to define the adequacy with a standard but to assess the impact of a School of Management on its environment by taking into consideration its specificities and its role.

Since its launching the BSIS was completed by 30 Schools of Management throughout the world.

iaelyon took part in the pilot phase in 2012 and has wished to renew the approach in 2017.
