Our origins date back to 1964 in Lille where the historical campus was established. In 2008, we opened a second campus in Paris in the Grande Arche of La Défense. Since then, we have achieved the ranking of a top 10 French Business School as well as the prestigious accolade of becoming a Grande École – one of the most respected and academically rigorous higher education programs in the world. The IÉSEG culture is born out of a passion for progress and ability, meaning that we focus all our energy on identifying the true potential from each student. We are proud of our unorthodox approach to business education and its ability to instill the key values of accomplishment, responsibility, integrity, solidarity, engagement – abilities that have been at the heart of our school since the very beginning.


At IÉSEG, students have access to the 5-year Grande École Program: A 3-year Bachelor program covering the fundamentals of management followed by a 2-year Master in Management program in which the students deepen their management knowledge and choose a specialization. The diploma approved by the French Ministry of Education has also been awarded the grade of Master (Master’s degree).
In addition, IÉSEG offers a 3 year Bachelor in International Business, 10 one year Master of Science and an International MBA entirely taught in English.


At IÉSEG Research Center, our professors conduct award-winning research and publish in the best international scientific journals. The primary fields are Economics, Finance, Marketing, Negotiation, Information Systems Management, Strategy, Operations Management, and the interdisciplinary field of Health Management. IÉSEG also enjoys a unique association with CNRS, Europe’s largest research organization, which reinforces our interdisciplinary approach to modern business problems.
