Job openings & careers

Grande Ecole Programme graduates are characterised by a rapid professional integration: 70% of students are recruited before graduation.

They mainly begin their career path with a permanent employment contract, with the status of manager, primarily in large companies, but there are also so many of them working in smaller companies, starting their own business, or carrying out self-employed activities.

This rapid professional integration is promoted through the completion of a significant professional experience during the training curriculum, in particular through apprenticeship.

The great diversity of professional specialisations offered by Grande Ecole Programme at Montpellier Business School multiplies the opportunities of entering the job market into diverse sectors of activities. Graduates are mainly employed in the commercial and distribution sectors, in consulting, auditing and financial activities. The agri-food and information technology sectors (industry or services) are also privileged sectors.

While the main functions held by graduates in their first job fall within the commercial realm at large, they also occupy management, marketing and purchasing functions.
