Founded in 1871, the school has stuck to its core offering ever since: general in essence, open to the world, rooted in a historically rich environment / region, and offering relevant training in the field. Refounded in 2006, it has moved into the 21st century world while maintaining its core elements.
The school fosters a proactive approach and initiative-taking in response to the strategic and organisational changes required by a context marked by innovation in an increasingly international and digital age. It renders students autonomous, actors rather than consumers or operators, and prepares them for adaptability and international mobility.
Professionalization (with an emphasis on training through on-site fieldwork) and the internationalisation of students, together with the infusion of research into the school's programmes, contribute to developing the technical competencies that organisations look for.
The school's knowledge output is related to its specific areas of study: SMEs & Entrepreneurship, Port & Maritime Logistics, Economic Intelligence, Territory Development and Cross-cultural Management.
As regards research, the school encourages the production and circulation of scientific knowledge aimed at enriching and updating teaching input on a continuous basis, with a focus on the managerial implications for decision makers in both the public and private sectors.
The School has also designed other entry points into the professional world. In addition to work placements, Junior Consulting Projects (HEC Entrepreneurs in partnership with Groupe HEC Paris), cooperative schemes, Challenges, and the Negotiation Contest, all give the opportunity to consider professional careers in a novel way thanks to innovative and concrete approaches.
To help students in their job search, the Corporate Relations Service offers contact with its network of 5 000 companies, all closely involved in the School's life and supporting its dynamism.
With La SmartEcole, students will gradually become co-creators of knowledge and develop many more of the qualities that are essential to their good integration into the enterprise: creativity, curiosity, a taste for teamwork and challenge, as well as a sense of responsibility.
Students benefit from a virtual space structured around a variety of tools and resources:
