APPLYING TO INSEEC U.
If INSEEC U. has so many students at college, more than 23,000, it is because this private institution is made up of no less than 16 grandes écoles! The Institut des Hautes Etudes Economiques et Commerciales is a member of the Conférence des Grandes Ecoles, and is a fairly recent business school compared to the ESCP or HEC Paris in particular: it was founded in 1975 and until this day we deliver some of the most talented alumni in art business, medicine, management, luxury and sport.
INSEEC U. namely has 4 main areas of specific studies: Management, Engineering, Communication and Creation, and Political Science. It also includes highly specialised schools in Digital, Luxury, Sport and Health. These clusters bring together 16 schools, which explains the school’s radiation over the world and enforces its reputation as a top graduate school which sends alumni on the path of wonderful careers. In comparison to public schools a rigorous selection process means that scholarships can be issued to and aimed at the most talented applicants that submitted their file.
These INSEEC schools are present on campuses all over France (Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux, Chambéry) but also all over the world (London, Shanghai, Geneva, San Francisco, Monaco). This broad international outlook partly explains INSEEC’s high ranking in the main business school rankings.
