Director's editorial

Founded in 1897, Montpellier Business School is today triple accredited AACSB, AMBA and EFMD-EPAS.

Its Master Grande École or “Master in Management” programme (formerly known “ESC Montpellier”) is among the top 15 best French Masters Grandes Écoles (L'Etudiant, Challenge, Le Point, Le Figaro, Le Parisien) and placed 53rd in the Financial Times Masters in Management 2017 global rankings.

Such recognition is the result of a long process which has consistently emphasised educational innovation and research that benefits student training: experience abroad, a mandatory year in a company, development of a work/study programme, professional specialisation in the final year – reassessed every year to follow the needs of the labour market, dual French and foreign Master’s degrees.

All these innovations have one objective: to train, through our higher education programmes, managers that are strong in their diversity, aware of their global responsibility in carrying out their missions, and able to adapt to changes in local, national and international environments.

Graduates of the Master Grande Ecole programme are highly sought after by employers who appreciate their ability to innovate and adapt to changes and new environments.

Montpellier Business School, and its Master Grande Ecole programme, is an institution on a human scale with tutors and students from all over the world, and marks itself out as being outstanding by its ability to defend strong humanist values and an education system based on academic excellence.

Our ambition is based on the belief that innovative methods and different paths in terms of training and education are essential to the progress of our society.
