In January 2012, BEM and Euromed Management announced a ‘rapprochement’, the result of which will be the creation of KEDGE Business School, a European center of excellence for business education. The objective? To become one of the 15 leading European Business Schools over the next five years.
The complementary strengths offered by both sides of this partnership will be key in ensuring that the new institution will meet the international standards required to retain BEM’s ‘Triple Crown’ accreditation, and can offer a global outreach.
The mission of KEDGE Business School is to meet international challenges in research, whilst developing new and innovative teaching programs.
The school will open in September 2013.

Bordeaux, in which the school is located, is registered as World Heritage UNESCO Site.
