Before implementing BCdiploma, Montpellier Business School (MBS) relied solely on paper-based processes for diploma issuance, leading to significant challenges.

The primary issue was the lengthy duration of the diploma printing and issuance process, which could extend up to six months after a student's graduation. This delay often resulted in dissatisfaction among graduates entering the job market. Many faced demands from potential employers for the original of their diplomas.This was especially problematic for students seeking employment abroad or in certain sectors like banking and finance, which account for more than 25% of MBS's graduates.

Consequently, MBS was forced to issue temporary diploma attestations on demand—a time-consuming process that required significant administrative effort (up to 1 FTE for a month) and led to further student dissatisfaction due to recruitment processes being put on hold.

The Results

By adopting BCdiploma and sending out digital, verifiable attestations immediately after the confirmation of diploma attainment, Montpellier Business School has seen a significant improvement in both student satisfaction and employability.

The time invested in responding to inquiries from recruiters and employers wanting to verify diplomas, issuing replacement diplomas for alumni, and providing pre-graduation ceremony diploma attestations has been dramatically reduced from 110 hours to just 2 hours, resulting in a remarkable 98% reduction in time spent on these activities.

Furthermore, MBS's proactive communication about these digital certificates has led to a substantial increase in the sharing of diplomas on professional social networks. This strategic move has not only boosted the school's brand image but has also enhanced its visibility in the educational and professional landscape.
