Accreditation is a certificate of appreciation of the quality of a private school or one of its streams. It ensures and guarantees the reliability and credibility of an institution. The main objective of accreditation is to encourage private schools to establish a high-level education service that meets the needs of the labour market. The accreditation of a course is fixed at a fixed number of years, i.e. the period required to prepare for the course’s diploma is the subject of the accreditation. It may be withdrawn if one of the criteria on the basis of which the accreditation was provided is no longer met. The Supdeco Dakar Group, Senegal’s best business school

Recognition is defined as a process that ensures the quality and level of education delivered by a private higher education institution. It enhances the value of the diplomas of private institutions and gives them greater recognition in the public sector.
Recognition of an institution of a private higher education also means that the diplomas awarded by that institution are equivalent to state diplomas. As a result, successful candidates from these institutions can take part in public sector competitions, easily enter the labour market and continue their studies in public institutions by organising bridges between public and private institutions.
The statutory Council of Ministers of the West Africa Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU) has awarded Sup de Co Dakar the label “Centre of Excellence”.
This distinction was awarded after a thorough audit conducted by the WAEMU experts and entitled us to the PACER GRANT which is a support from WAEMU for the development of the elected regional centers of excellence.
This PACER GRANT aims to improve the supply of training and research in member countries to enhance the quality of training and research in educational institutions. This label gives our group an institutional recognition of states and international organizations, and positions Sup de Co as a major group among the leaders in the field of higher education in Africa. It also reaffirms the Inter-African nature of Sup de Co with students from over 25 nationalities.
Our diplomas are also co-signed by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Dakar (CCIAD). Which gives them a strong recognition of the professional world.
