A word from Nicolas Arnaud, Program Director

Nicolas Arnaud, Program Director

Dear parents,

More than ever, choosing Audencia for your son or daughter means sharing the values of courage, listening, solidarity and commitment that help create an incomparable class spirit among our students every year!

Since its founding in 1900, Audencia has been a pioneer in the world of business schools. It has often been a pioneer in redefining what French and international business schools offer, particularly in terms of the place given to humanities and culture, its commitment to corporate social responsibility issues, and the hybridization of skills.

Regarding the future of your son or daughter at our school, we have recently developed a new strategic plan for 2025 called ECOS. It aims to make Audencia a better school for the world, and is based on the creation of a school dedicated to ecological and social change, Gaïa; increased cross-fertilization of cultures for all in France and internationally; the opening of a campus in São Paulo, Brazil; and completely renovated campuses in Nantes and Paris.

As a member of the Audencia community, we wanted to give you the opportunity to follow the news and projects of your son's or daughter's school with this page dedicated to you.

Thank you for the trust you have placed in us.

Nicolas Arnaud, Director of Programs
