Master in Management over 5 years now available in Tours

Excelia Business School has broadened the admissions options for its Master in Management and is now offering a 5-year post-High School programme on its Tours campus.

On 27th January, Excelia Business School received a favourable response from the Commission d’évaluation des formations et diplômes de gestion (CEFDG) to its request to be able to offer its Master in Management as a 5-year post-High School programme, on both its La Rochelle and Tours campuses.


Offering this programme over 5 years reflects Excelia’s desire to respond to the region’s need for high-level education, as well as giving students the possibility of joining a Master in Management programme straight after High School. As of September 2021, the programme will be available in Tours.

Sébastien Chantelot“The launching of a 5-year Master in Management is in keeping with the desire to diversify our range of programmes, and to open up new channels for admissions. Those future students who decide to join straight from High School will benefit from two additional years of experiences including getting involved in our clubs and associations, spending time abroad, volunteering for civic projects, undertaking internships and even carrying out part of their studies on a work-study track. Excelia’s range of study programmes and the variety of experiences they offer are among the most extensive and varied on the market, so, studying at Excelia is a great opportunity for future students.”
