Françoise ROUDIER, director of Group ESC Clermont

Groupe ESC Clermont holds AACSB accreditation and is a Business School renowned for its programmes, the number and quality of its international partners, its dual-competences and transdisciplinary background and double-degrees, on top of its traditional fields of excellence. Testimonials from businesses, recruiters and the educational sector are recognition of our reliability, our high level of teaching and training methods and student support. The success of our 12,000 graduates attests that Groupe ESC Clermont can aptly be described as ‘generating value’.

Our mission is to train managers and entrepreneurs possessing a sound knowledge in management, but also capable of understanding the challenges and the complexity of the economic and business world where creativity and innovation are an essential foundation for successful decision-making, actions and behaviour. Consequently, the guidelines for our programmes are to develop capacities for innovation, provide each student with a sound entrepreneurial background and accompany our students, future value providers, at an economic and societal level.

The intramural Square Lab Incubator supports the goals of this educational programme, and for our entrepreneurial students it has a genuine leverage effect on the management and the success of their projects.

Benefiting from a teaching faculty that is faithful and committed to the success of its students, Groupe ESC Clermont thus accompanies students, senior executives, engineers and responsible managers through high-quality degree programmes.

Groupe ESC Clermont continues to be one of France’s leading Business Schools, supported by companies and a strong, collaborative network of 12,000 graduates.
