Excelia Business School – La Rochelle

Excelia Business School offers courses from Bac to Bac+5 level (key-stage five to Master’s level). The school is EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA accredited, and two of its programmes – Master Grande École (MBA) and BBA International – have received the EFMD Programme accreditation. Ranked among the top global business schools by the Financial times, the School offers Bachelor in Business, BBA International and the Master Grande École (MBA) and Masters of Science (MSc) programmes that prepare students for careers in finance, marketing, communication, human resources and management, as well as for key corporate functions, both in France and internationally. Its Tourism and Hospitality School offers several programmes, one Bachelor and two MSc degrees.

The Group’s development plan clearly mentions its uncompromising commitment to research by focusing on developing the quality and quantity of publications and on increasing the share of self-funded research. All teaching staff in the field of management participate in the activities of the CERIIM (Centre for Research in Managerial Intelligence and Innovation) and are engaged in one of the following three categories: academic research, job-oriented research and research geared to teaching and innovation.

The School has given itself three areas of specialisation that characterise its identity and distinctive nature: CSR, Tourism Management and AID (Agility, Innovation and Digitalisation). It operates particularly through specialised institutions and corporate chairs. The work of researchers who, for various reasons, do not fit in one of the three areas, is grouped together under the category “Management concepts and practices”. Intellectual contributions in the form of business case studies are under the remit of INNOV Case Lab.
