The school

Assets :

Innovative educational approach based on double competence

Training offered through sandwich courses (work-study programmes) and apprenticeships

International development recognised through EPAS certification

Combining scientific and managerial skills

Since its creation in 1956, our IAE has remained unique by developing, within the University of Montpellier, an original and quality training offer. It guarantees that students smoothly enter the world of work by providing them with real employability and the capacity to occupy managerial positions both today and in the future. In order to meet new challenges, meet the expectations of all of our stakeholders and ensure internal cohesion, we have chosen to focus our efforts around three pillars that form the identity of IAE Montpellier:
- Double competence (welcoming students from scientific and technological fields in order to develop their management skills)
- International development (numerous international exchanges have taken place and seven double degrees are offered to our students in combination with foreign partner universities)
- Educational innovation (monitoring digital education, creation of a Digital University Diploma and MOOCs, development of in-class courses, distance courses, and asynchronous courses).

Strong roots in the Occitanie region

Coming from a university course in applied mathematics and then from training in construction economics, I wanted to supplement my scientific career with managerial skills, with an emphasis on entrepreneurship. IAE Montpellier was the only establishment to mix the world of start-ups and innovation. Graduating with a Master 2 in the Creation of Innovative Companies in 2015, I developed my start-up project in parallel. Called ‘Made In Plan’, it is a web application that automatically assesses and designs future homes. IAE Montpellier is a school bringing together passionate and fascinating teacher-researchers, administrative staff and students who have all contributed to my development and my entrepreneurial success.
