Impact communication tool

At a time when all organisations are increasingly being held accountable for their activities, you often need to demonstrate with well-documented evidence the impact that you have on your immediate environment.

Data-driven system

This data-driven system allows you to identify the tangible and intangible benefits that you bring to the local environment.

Thorough assessment process

At the heart of BSIS is a framework of 120 indicators covering 7 dimensions including financial, economic, societal and image dimensions of impact.

Global reach

Since its launch in 2014, BSIS, run as a joint venture between EFMD Global Network and FNEGE, has successfully assessed 28 business schools all over the world.
