Founded in 1900, Audencia Nantes is today among the best European business schools. Its key mission is to provide expert teaching and practical advice to prospective and current (incoming and outgoing) students. Resolutely international with over 60% of all classes taught in English rising to 100% on the full-time MBA, Audencia Nantes is one of the rare schools to hold the three world renowned accreditations, EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA. This ‘triple crown’ underlines the school’s commitment to teaching excellence. With more than 140 quality academic partnerships in 45 countries plus more than 110 accords with national and international companies, the school gives its students the tools and knowledge needed to pursue careers worldwide. Each year, Audencia welcomes around 2800 students of over 50 nationalities on its 13 management programs and adult education tracks. The school’s strategy is based on three pillars: global responsibility, entrepreneurship and dual competencies. In 2004, Audencia Nantes became the first school of management in France to sign the United Nations Global Compact. Since then, the school has been fully involved in this initiative, which has brought businesses, labor organizations and societies together to further 10 universal principles of human rights, labor standards and the environment. In signing the Global Compact, Audencia Nantes is committed to promoting these 10 principles to its student body, staff and partners. It also integrates these principles into its research, teachings and internal management while reporting annually on its aims and related measures taken. In line with the school’s stress on responsibility in all its forms of its activity and portfolio of programs, its full-time MBA has now been repositioned for 2013 as the MBA in Responsible Management. Rather than offering a specialized MBA, the initiative is designed to attract students wishing to follow a quality generalist MBA which has the notion of responsibility at its heart. In this way, the new-look Audencia MBA will help participants acquire a critical distance, a true sense of innovation and a heightened awareness of the wider effects of their actions. In terms of entrepreneurship, the school’s on-campus business incubator is increasingly active, providing students and alumni from all programs with office space, expert advice and key contacts for up to three years after graduation. The spirit of openness key to the school finds one of its main outlets in Audencia Nantes’ dual competencies approach. This logic means that the school draws on partnerships with other non-management schools to be able to train engineer-managers, art-managers, architect-managers, life scientist-managers and the like via the Audencia Master in Management (Grande Ecole program). In addition to this graduate program, Audencia Nantes offers a full range of international Masters and MBAs. The International Master in Management (IMM) is taught entirely in English and allows students to move between the UK, Spain, France and Poland depending on study choices. The Master of Science in Supply Chain and Purchasing Management divides students’ time between Nantes and Milan and can be studied over one or two years. Finally, the European Management Program (EMP), taught in English, French and Spanish, involves classes taught in France, Spain and the UK.
