Founded in 1900, at Audencia Business School, we’re recognized worldwide for our education and research specializations in both fields of business and management. All of our master’s and MBA programs are taught in English, and include programs such as the Full-Time MBA, International Master in Management, and MSc in Management-Engineering.

We have over 190 high-quality academic partnerships, more than 150 accords with both national and international companies and four campuses situated around the world to maintain these well-established contacts. Our main campus hub is located in Nantes, western France, with our three other campuses based in Paris, Beijing and Shenzhen.

Renowned for our academic excellence, meaningful research and international scope, we’re also amongst the 1 percent of business schools that holds the top three international academic accreditations – EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA, making it one of France’s elite Grande École higher education institutions.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is at the heart of all our research, programs and operations. Indeed, we’re the first French business school to adhere to the UN’s Global Compact and sign the UN’s Principles for Responsible Management Education.

Therefore, we work hard to ensure our students are prepared for the challenges and accolades that come with the world of work and are capable of making decisions in an international setting, whilst having a solid cultural understanding and outlook. Such visions are reinforced by the option for students to study abroad and take up internships with notable companies around the world.
