Identity and status[edit]

Montpellier Business School, established in 1897, is one of the oldest management schools in Europe.

Founded by the Chamber of Commerce of Montpellier, the École Supérieure de Commerce de Montpellier (the Montpellier Graduate School of Business) was initially created to train economic leaders who would help develop activities and businesses in the region.

On January 1, 2013, Montpellier Business School changed its legal status, becoming a non-profit association according to the French association law of 1901 (Loi 1901). The goal of this modification was to give the institution greater management autonomy in order to meet international standards and to make operations more flexible to facilitate management innovations and allow for the changes necessary in national and international markets.


Montpellier Business School is established in the fields of management innovation and entrepreneurship research. Further high-impact research groups focus on organization theory, work, and leisure; regional development; sustainable accounting; and wine business research.[1]

This program is in partnership with the University of Victoria (Canada) and Sungkyunkwan University (Korea). In November, Montpellier Business School is welcoming 35 students from 13 different countries. The module mostly focuses on entrepreneurial projects. [2]
