Toulouse Business School (French: École Supérieure de Commerce de Toulouse) was founded in 1903 by the Toulouse Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the school's initial vocation was to respond to the needs of the local business community for able business administrators.

Originally housed in a 15th-century monastery in the old town centre, the School's present premises include a downtown campus, a modern campus located on the perimeter of the city, a modern campus in Barcelona, Spain and another in Casblanca, Morocco. The downtown main campus is located at the heart of the business complex near the centre of Toulouse.
