History

Education

Our faculty in the broadest sense is enriched by about thirty Affiliated Professors whose efforts are occur in the field of research as well as in the teaching and career development of our students. Visiting professors and post-docs from renowned national and foreign universities also teach and conduct research with our faculty. Finally, Montpellier Business School relies on strong relationships with the business world, via its major partners, who also contribute to teaching in the forms of conferences, seminars and guest lectures. More than one hundred external lecturers who are professional experts in their fields, provide in depth training on the different aspects of business.   

Research

The role of research in Management Sciences is thus fundamental for the social and economic performances of businesses. As a result, the Groupe supports its teachers and their teachings in research, itself supported by businesses, so that the school’s students can integrate and appropriate both well-established and new scientific methods and knowledge. The sectors of research all deal with entrepreneurial performance.The teacher-researchers in the Groupe are members of Montpellier Research in Management (MRM), which groups together all the management research teams in Montpellier.
