Accreditation & Partnership

AVIDE is nationally accredited by the government of Côte d’Ivoire to offer technical and professional degrees: these are designed to help the students be immediately operational after their University education.

Last year, the Institute was granted centre status and accreditation by the UK’s “NCC Education” (formerly known as the National Computing Centre, now NCC Education), “a leading awarding organisation of British education... that offers range of qualifications in IT and Business to a global network of centres and provide support for you to deliver these qualifications to your students” (

This accreditation is for the International Foundation Year level and the L7 Diploma in Business Management (which is the first year of the MBA program). After the L7DBM, students work online: they are assigned a supervisor from Northampton University and they work on their thesis.
