Premises in the heart of Old Lille

I graduated from the Masters in Management Sciences in 2001 and my various professional experiences have led me to occupy the position of administrative and financial manager within an association called Les Orchidée (a nursing home supporting elderly people who are independent or have reduced autonomy ). After eight years in finance, I needed to give some meaning to my career and to open up to other human-oriented sectors. So, I decided to take a Master 2 in Business Management in the Health Sector in order to perfect my knowledge in this field and was therefore able to join the management team of a retirement home in 2012.
IAE Lille is a genuine institution allowing us to acquire the methodology and rigour necessary for the pursuit of excellence, while developing our openness to the world around us and, in particular, the business world.
