A word from Nicolas Arnaud, Director of Programmes

Dear parents,

More than ever, choosing Audencia for your children means sharing the values of audacity, listening, solidarity and commitment that contribute each year to forging an incomparable class spirit amongst our students!

Since its founding in 1900, Audencia has set a different course in the world of business schools. It has often been a pioneer in redefining the offer of French and international business schools, particularly in terms of the place given to humanities and culture, its commitment to corporate social responsibility issues, and the hybridisation of skills.

Concerning the future of your children at our school, we have recently developed a new strategic plan for 2025, called ECOS. This plan aims to make Audencia a better school for the world, notably through the creation of an internal school dedicated to the ecological and societal transition, Gaïa; increased hybridisation for all in France and internationally; the opening of a campus in São Paulo, Brazil, and the completely renovated Nantes and Paris campuses.

As a member of the Audencia community, we wanted to use this website, which is dedicated to you, to allow you to follow the news and projects of your children's school.

We thank you for the trust you place in us.

Nicolas Arnaud, Director of programmes

White Paper "From Studies to Employment: the Grandes Ecoles Reinvent Themselves"

In addition, find the white paper "From Studies to Employment: the Grandes Ecoles Reinvent Themselves". The book answers the following questions:

  • How can we move towards hybrid teaching formats, mixing on campus and online learning?
  • How can we coordinate the solidarity movement to support isolated students, facing financial or psychological difficulties? What innovative means are being implemented to maintain social links, and student and community life? How can we help students build an international profile, without immersion abroad?
  • Beyond the Covid-19 crisis, what resources and services do the grandes écoles make available to students in order to support them from the moment they enter the school to the completion of their professional project? How do internships and apprenticeships provide a real springboard to employment? What do companies expect?
