About the School

Our School brings together individuals with widely differing experiences and interests who share one goal: the pursuit of excellence. Students and professionals attending the École des Ponts Business School come from a broad range of backgrounds, including media and publishing, banking and financial services, art and design, engineering and manufacturing, high-tech and energy, hospitality and tourism, education and training, retailing and consulting services, as well as government and public administration. The aim of the School is to take you beyond technical proficiency to mastering the mental frameworks and analytical tools for lasting individual development and professional success.

Since 1987, the École des Ponts Business School 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 programs in Paris, Shanghai, Casablanca and Edinburgh.

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

We believe that the École des Ponts Business School offers managers and executives forward-thinking content, delivered by internationally renowned faculty, which addresses the current issues and challenges facing organizations today.

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