A global school of management

 

Olivier Aptel

A GLOBAL SCHOOL OF MANAGEMENT

INTERNATIONALISATION AND GLOBALISATION ARE KEY CHARACTERISTICS OF TODAY'S ENVIRONMENT

Olivier Aptel - Dean

 

Edito

 

The world has become a “global village” where economies are closely interrelated, political, social and cultural dimensions tightly interwoven or openly confrontational. This brings considerable opportunities but also greater complexity. One “must prepare for the future by seeing what others cannot (…and) have others follow your direction when there is no map”.(1)

 

Management Schools have to face these new challenges, responding to companies needs, by educating and training students and managers to be the “Responsible Business Entrepreneurs” for tomorrow’s world.

 

For ESC Rennes School of Business, it has led to the development of two main priorities: Internationalisation and Innovation.

The school intends to prepare Global Responsible Pionneers.

Programmes taught in English by an international full-time faculty, students coming from all over the world through exchange agreements or as non-exchange students, international research cooperation, programme development with international partners and international faculty exchange: all of these are key features of our School of management. As a consequence, managing diversity and “Being International” are embedded in our organisational culture and are directly experienced by everyone on campus.

 

Building new knowledge useful to companies through research, offering high value executive programmes, developing innovative teaching approaches, giving students opportunities to get hands on experience, using technology and multimedia resources make ESC Rennes a Business School of its own time and unique in France.

Mission
