Master in Management: +5 places in Le Parisien, Top 15 in Le Point

These rankings by Le Point and Le Parisien reward the excellence of the school’s programmes and its innovative teaching methods, whilst endorsing  its choices and decisions made with students in mind. In its 32 years of existence, Excelia Business School’s Master in Management (MiM) has constantly evolved and improved with the passage of time, as demonstrated by its progression in the rankings.

The major business schools must reinvent themselves to face the challenges of climate change and to prepare students to become future professionals who are aware of their company’s impact on the planet. Excelia has been fully committed to these issues for several decades: it is a pioneer both in environmental matters and in the education of its students to become socially and environmentally responsible managers. Today, CSR teaching permeates all of Excelia’s programmes, and it conducts research into CSR-related issues. With this in mind, Excelia launched the experiential pedagogical Climacité© initiative which explores another field of sustainable development. This project helps students to become responsible managers by understanding the issues of environmental protection and climate change. 

Enhanced employability, a strong international dimension, and academic excellence are all criteria highlighted in the various rankings in which the MiM distinguished itself.
