Located in the South of France, IAE Montpellier School of Management is part of Montpellier University and is accredited by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research. IAE Montpellier awards state degrees at undergraduate and postgraduate levels in the fields of business and management with a focus on information technology.
It belongs to a network of 32 IAEs throughout France and has more than fifty years of experience in management and business education. It was founded in 1956 and is one of the oldest IAE schools of Management in the French public education system. Double skill training management contributed to its original position in line with the IAE network policy. The IAE National Association, since renamed «IAE France» helps to build common policies regarding communication or prospective, to have concerted public actions and to implement common services.
Our core mission is to train individuals to acquire a double competence or to make a career change, adding an advanced training in management and business to their initial degree. The variety of students’ profiles – mostly engineers and science students – has always been a distinctive feature of IAE.
IAE Montpellier stands out for its focus on double skill training in management and business. Our school has been developing an original education model based upon its dual skill sets, apprenticeships and executive education.
Internationalization is an integral part of our activities. We already offer three international degrees entirely taught in English: the Master of International Business Engineering (First and Second Year), the Bachelor in International Management and Business (BIMB) and the Graduate diploma in International Business (GIB). Since 2012, IAE Montpellier has increased its internationalization with the creation of joint degrees with Universities in Thailand, Taiwan and Russia.
