This chapter focuses on student perception of international accreditation within a French business school. It illustrates that while students generally perceive accreditation positively, they actually know very little about it. The chapter attempts to make a modest contribution to existing literature by addressing the absence of the student voice in studies on international accreditation in business education so far. It also attempts to emphasise to both schools going through the accreditation process and the accrediting agencies themselves that students may not be as well informed on the process as these institutions assume. This has obvious implications for the success of an accreditation process. More importantly, as their knowledge of accreditation can play a key role in a student’s choice of educational institution—a major life choice for a young person—it raises the issue of who should educate students on the subject of international accreditation and how this may responsibly be done.
