TBS holds the triple accreditation AACSB/EQUIS/AMBA. It offers courses to the 5600 students and learners trained each year in its initial and continuing training programmes.

It has five campuses located in Toulouse, Paris, Barcelona, London and Casablanca.

Focused on emerging sectors, the school has developed two clusters of expertise: the first dedicated to Artificial Intelligence and data analysis, the second to aerospace mobility


In 2014, TBS obtains EQUIS accreditation for the 3rd consecutive time, awarded the full 5-year duration, joining an elite selection of business schools

In 2015, TBS launched its development plan 2020, which underpins the following ambitions:

  • An international perspective: nurtures multiculturalism by welcoming a growing number of international students and lecturers and multiply the number of intercontinental courses on offer
  • Academic excellence: spreads the news about the quality of our teaching and research through the recruitment of a high-level teaching body and delivers teaching which is adapted to today's society and businesses
  • The student experience: creates coherent, inspiring and personalised pathways aimed at lifelong personal and professional development for our students. By putting our money on the cross-fertilisation of skills and innovative teaching methods, TBS aims to train effective and influential players to work in responsible and competitive organisations.

In December 2016, TBS moved from a non-profit status to that of an EESC(Etablissement d’Enseignement Supérieur Consulaire – Consular Higher EducationEstablishment). As a result, TBS, supported by the CCI of Toulouse, has strengthened its independence in terms of management and decision-making and is better able to take charge of its development issues.

In January 2017, Toulouse Business School obtained the Sustainable Development and Social Responsibility quality seal for four years.
