Founded in Nantes in 1900, Audencia – from the Latin audientia, meaning “listening”, and audacia, meaning “daring” – was first accredited by EQUIS in 1998 and is ranked amongst the top European business schools.
The school thus internationally reaffirms the essence of its brand: audacity. This formula was suggested by Manon Meyer, Grande Ecole student in the "Entrepreneurship" major.
Audencia is a member of the elite national Conférence des Grandes Écoles (CGE), which is a non-profit association and prestigious national accreditation body. CGE certifies Mastère Spécialisé (specialised master’s) degrees in order to ensure that programmes meet the needs of businesses.
