Audencia - Icon innovation

Innovation as a challenger

Anticipating the needs of companies and the market, shaping trends, making commitments, pushing the boundaries... A pioneer in many fields, over the years Audencia has defined the new trends in French and international business schools: mandatory semester abroad, general cultural courses, the integration of CSR in all programs... and, more recently, the cross-fertilization of skills.


Cooperating to dare together

 Internally and externally, cooperation is a daily reality, driven by a participatory management model that advocates consultation, concertation and co-creation and promotes the involvement and integration of all its stakeholders in the decisions that impact the School.


Responsibility to affirm our difference

Responsibility is a fundamental commitment of Audencia, a pioneer in this field. It consists of partnerships with the school's various stakeholders and is reflected in research, teaching and the way the institution operates.
