IGR-IAE Rennes, Graduate School of Management

The school is a founding member of the national network of University Business Schools, the IAE France network, which comprises 33 select members throughout France.


It is divided into three main departments: The School of Management, The Franco-Japanese Center of Management (CFJM) and The Regional School of Training for Chartered Accountants (IRPEC).

Research programs are supported by the Center for Research in Economics and Management (CREM), the only research center in economics and management in western France, accredited by the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS). The CREM’s main goals are to develop analysis and to conduct experiments and simulations in business, finance, management and marketing, among other fields.

The University Graduate School contributes to the development of European studies in management science and is an active member of the Academic Council of the European Institute for Advanced Studies in Management (EIASM), and of the Steering Committee of the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD). The school applies a selective entry process. On average, only one out of ten applications is accepted. In order to be admitted, all candidates are expected to present a realistic and well thought-out career plan as well as their academic achievements and motivation.

In 2007, an extensive fundraising campaign resulted in launching the first ever foundation created within the university business school network in France (Fondation IGR-IAE). Closely linked to the French Foundation, (Fondation de France), it aims to initiate and to support innovative programs (seminars, workshop and conferences) with the goal of improving research and teaching in Management Science.

"As a member of the IAE FRANCE network in France, IGR-IAE is the biggest public management school and management research center in western France. 
IGR-IAE develops “the entrepreneurial spirit within the university walls.” For more than 60 years, IGR-IAE has combined both academic research and  innovative teaching methods in order to offer its recognized high-quality programs. IGR-IAE offers a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in management science, six  professional and research-oriented Master’s degrees, and a Doctoral program. Four of the Master’s degrees (in Management, Finance, Marketing, Human Resources) are taught exclusively in English. This offer is complemented by the addition of a program that is especially designed for the non-French speaking exchange students coming from our 67 partner universities, as well as the existence of overseas programs in Luxembourg, Morocco and Vietnam.
