NEOMA recognised by AACSB as a leading school for innovation
France’s NEOMA Business School has been recognised by AACSB as one of the world’s top institutions in terms of its levels of innovation and entrepreneurship.
This recognition from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) came about as a result of NEOMA Business School’s “Entrepreneurs Across Borders” scheme.
With the scheme, the multi-campus business school launched an international entrepreneurial ecosystem, which enables students to follow a semester of courses at a partner university.
The scheme utilises a network of 10 institutions, each recognised for their expertise in the field of entrepreneurship, from across four continents.
NEOMA said it plans to continue to expand this network, to provide more courses from a greater range of prestigious institutions.
Earlier this year, NEOMA Business School had also formalised a partnership with the professional association EdTech France to jointly drive innovation of educational technologies.
NEOMA model aims to “reinvent the international student experience”
Delphine Manceau, Dean of NEOMA Business School, expressed her pleasure at the current progress made by the project and its extensive successes.
“This new immersion model reinvents the international student experience by anchoring it in the personal project of the student who wants to start his start-up from the start, while respecting the School’s conviction that the exchange is never as strong as when the students immerse themselves in the best universities in the country.
“To achieve this ambition, we are delighted to have several institutions recognised worldwide for their expertise in the field of entrepreneurship, such as UC Berkeley in the United States, Deakin University in Australia, the Getúlio Vargas Foundation (FGV) in Brazil and IIM Calcutta in India.”
NEOMA was recognised by AACSB as one of world’s top 25 for innovation
This is the 5th year of the AACSB “Innovations that Inspire” challenge, during which time almost 1000 innovations have been commended for their contribution to improving higher education worldwide.
The global competition run by AACSB aims to highlight the initiatives of business schools.
This award from AACSB recognises NEOMA as one of world’s top 25 institutions in terms of its commitment to innovation and entrepreneurship.
The “Innovations That Inspire” challenge aims to showcase the efforts of institutions striving to develop the world’s management training sector.
Thomas Robinson, President and CEO of AACSB, expressed his praise for the work of NEOMA.
“The need for innovation mobilises many international experts from different disciplines, and yet demand has never been greater, especially in this unprecedented period.
“As such, it is an honor to recognise NEOMA and its initiative to launch the first network of incubators internationally. This unique device will play a valuable role in promoting entrepreneurship around the world.”
