IAE Nice, Graduate School of Managament : I.mpact A.ttractiveness and E.conomy

IAE Nice, the University of Nice’s Graduate School of Management, was created in 1966 to offer an equivalent to American business schools. For more than 50 years, the school has fulfilled its two roles: providing students with high-quality vocational training and providing companies with the skills they need. In concrete terms, these roles are fulfilled through multiple economic and university partnerships, both regionally and throughout the world.

IAE Nice cultivates its strong international positioning through a network of 210 partners (UCLA, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Russian International University, Manhattan Institute of Management etc.), the development of international mobility programmes and a ‘delocalised’ training offer (17 delocalised diplomas and double diplomas). We can therefore safely say that IAE Nice lives up to its initials. The school’s local financial Impact is undeniable, its Attractiveness is local, national and international, and it is a major player in the local Economy.

After 15 years in the medico-social sector, I wanted to give a new dimension to my career and acquire new skills. The MAE allowed me to understand all the components that form a modern company and the current economic challenges. The provision of theoretical and multidisciplinary knowledge, alongside the multicultural interactions between students in initial and continuing education, have enabled me to launch my own innovative project. Within the IAE itself, I was able to present this project at an ‘IAE Nice student-entrepreneur evening’. A few months later, even before the end of my course, I received a promise of employment as a senior executive within a large group.
