Let's celebrate the 40 years of MBA and of the continuing professional training:
At Audencia, forty years after its creation, continuing professional training has been able to adapt to changes in the world of work over the course of reforms. Today, it remains one of the major challenges for the economic, social and environmental development of our society.
In 1980, the Ecole Supérieure de Commerce de Nantes expanded its continuing education offer and offered its first MBA, an international program taught in English to some forty American students. It offers training focused on management and the European economic and financial environment.
Over the years, the MBA has proved its worth. The teaching, which includes both general management courses as well as the possibility of specialization in certain fields (marketing, finance, logistics, etc.), is essential.
In 2020, 40 years after its first MBA, the school that became Audencia is ranked 3rd for its Executive MBA according to CEO magazine's annual ranking. Its full-time MBA ranks in the top third of the world, the best level (the magazine does not award an individual place for this category).
The ranking also underlines the quality of our teaching. It is based on the right balance between excellent academic teaching, with a higher proportion of PhD professors, combined with the indispensable contribution of experts from the business world.
These results are recognition of the work that Audencia Executive Education teams have been doing during the past several years.
