In 1990, the Chamber of Commerce in Rennes, France, opened the ESC Rennes School of Business. Since that time, the school has focused on offering advanced degrees in the area of international business and 15 different master’s programs in science focus on different facets of business.
In addition, the traditional MBA can be attained, as can a doctorate in business administration and the standard PhD. In the latter case, that program is based in Rennes in conjunction with the University of Amsterdam and University College Dublin. For individuals working on that advanced degree in part-time fashion, a master’s in six different areas is possible.
One of the school’s main calling cards for over a quarter-century has been its role as a research institution for three pertinent segments of the business community. These areas include technology and innovation, responsible business, with supply chains and operations management rounding out the trio.
Just over half of the students are international arrivals, with 90 percent of the faculty fitting that description. Those students make their way from approximately 260 other schools from around the world and will soon have four different campuses to choose from when the most recent structure is completed.
