Welcome Candidate

Message from the dean


Dr. Tawfik Jelassi

As a candidate for one of our programs it is important to know that our School prides itself in bringing together individuals with widely differing experiences, backgrounds and interests who share one goal: the pursuit of excellence.  Students and professionals attending the ENPC School of International Management come from a broad range of sectors, including art and media, banking and financial services, engineering and design, manufacturing and high-tech, retailing and consulting, education and training, as well as international organizations, government and public administration, and not-for-profit organizations. This diversity of backgrounds is mirrored by the international diversity of our student body and faculty.

The aim of the School is to take its program participants beyond technical proficiency to mastering the mental frameworks and analytical tools for lasting individual development and professional success. Behind this aim is the desire to ensure that our MBA programs include a soft skills as well, stressing the human dimension and an overarching vision by which business is also seen as a vehicle to create a better world. A vision which is true to that of the School’s founder, the late Celia Russo.

Since 1987, the ENPC School of International Management has been delivering a dynamic range of undergraduate, MBA, and executive education programs.  The common philosophy, underlying all of our programs, is that of "value-based global leadership".  It is our conviction that leadership and management must be anchored in a value system that emphasizes human capital and society at large.   Because business is international and management is cross-cultural, we have always emphasized a global approach to teaching.  That approach has been enriched, over the years, through our experiences teaching and delivering programs in several parts of the world including Paris, Casablanca, Shanghai, Abu Dhabi and New Delhi.

The quality of our offerings has been recognized by the Association of MBA programs (AMBA), which has accredited our programs.  The AMBA not only granted our programs full re-accreditation status, but also highlighted the School’s ability to encourage students to “learn how to learn” and to think for themselves.

We believe that the ENPC School of International Management offers young professionals, as well as managers and executives, forward-thinking content, delivered by internationally renowned faculty, which addresses the current issues and challenges facing society, individuals and organizations today.

We invite you to join us on this journey of reflection, discovery and advancement.
