Our international programs, taught in Paris and thirteen other countries, are a reflection of our school’s global outlook. We are welcoming about 1,000 international students each year and we have developed a close network of partnerships with foreign universities.

Essential to our mission as both a top-class provider of business education and a dynamic research institution is the quality of our faculty, who bring their wealth of expertise and knowledge to life for our students through the use of the case-study method of teaching and other innovative teaching methods. In terms of research, IAE’s applied focus has given rise to extended collaboration with corporate partners, which is today structured through our six research groups.

As a non-profit organization belonging to a public university, we pride ourselves on bridging the gap between a top-class academic education and the international world of business.
