A word from the dean

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the IAE Nice, the Graduate School of Management within the “Université Côte d’Azur.” The I.A.E. has been created by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research 50 years ago upon the request of the “MEDEF” (Movement of French Entreprises). This employer organisation is bringing together the majority of French companies’ leaders. The aim was, following the example of American universities, to create University-backed Business Schools offering top quality training programmes to meet the needs of the corporate world. Thus, the I.A.E. Nice offers a selection of programmes orientated towards accounting, international, marketing, management, or communication careers. The school has partnered with some prominent professional associations or companies as well as international universities to provide students with the support they need to excel professionally as much as personally. Some of our teachers are leading researchers, others are top-ranked professionals attentive to new challenges arising regularly in their field. With several thousands of Graduates, the I.A.E. guides students to start their professional journey and supports them in pursuing their careers.
