Discussion in 'Accreditation Discussions (RA, DETC, state approva' started by Father Brown Riley, Aug 23, 2017.
So far I have not found clear information
Did you try to contact ipe Or check with ministry of education in France? Thanks
I have contacted the Dean of school and told me the following:
All degrees issued from Bachelors to Doctorate by IPE Management School and PPA are therefore recognised by the French Ministry of Education. The degree that we issue will bear the PPA designation.
Hi! Did they provide any black and white evidence regarding this PPA? Thanks
I'm still looking and I try and if you get to the right information please tell me
I will... Thanks for all your replies
Camille and Mohamad, you can easily check out the PPA site. https://www.ppa.fr/en/ecole-commerce-alternance.html . They don't seem to award anything higher than a master's.
Interesting. They also advertise experiential credit towards a degree. Here they call it SOM. It was called VAE years ago - validation des acquis de l'expérience¸ It still is: the page still has VAE in the name and a specific section for VAE. They advertise it in English, so I wonder if the VAE examination (proving skills) can be done in English. https://www.ppa.fr/en/vae.html I'm sure you'd have to go to Paris for that, though. If a "school" in France offers you VAE by distance --- I'd say you should run!
Government's official site about VAE is here, if you're interested: http://www.vae.gouv.fr/
This shows that they are lying and have no credibility
Rule of thumb is any degree must be recognised by the French authorities but guess what........the Dean just confirmed that it's true....... not recognised. I have No idea why the course is even offered in the first place. Thanks gentlemen for all your replies.
Any updates on this? The topic seems indeed interesting....
The issue is still vague and we need answers
The truth!? Here we go...
the French Ministry recognizes only PhD degrees ...at that level, anything else is out of the question!
Who said this
Can you explain
If we study DBA, does this mean that no one recognizes us?
If you contact the French official representative in your country I guess you'll receive the same reply.
As far as to what it will happen if you study the DBA and who will recognize the degree..... unfortunately, I cannot be of any help
I have questioned the degree of DBA from more than one point, which is an accredited degree
Even the French Ministry of Education recognizes the degree but remains below the PhD degree and some say it needs an amendment
So we are saying the same thing with other words... simply its not at PhD level..
so the FM of Edu doesn't recognize a Doctorate? and if its not a Doctorate why its called "pitched" as one? Too much grey in the whole picture
There are some developments at IPE
What are They? Please share...
I could not post the link because this forum would not allowed posting of web link. Just go to IPE's website.
It says PPA is allowed by French authorities to award up to DBA. IPE is the international arm of PPA to conduct PPA programs overseas.
It has also posted up a copy of CNCP's letter and a copy of IPE President's letter to the effect.
Sorry i could not give you the link, google IPE's website url and you will see these developments.
