Information Systems and Big Data
The school offers a variety of undergraduate and graduate education to more than 5,000 students, hailing from more than 70 countries. Our programs are accredited by AACSB, EQUIS, and AMBA. Our faculty are diverse and international, mostly non-French, making the school the most multicultural institution of its kind.
We focus on research that matters for academia and practice. The school boasts a new institute for advanced studies — The Centre for Unframed Thinking — and research centers devoted to tomorrow’s organization, AI-driven business, agribusiness, finance & economics, and supply chains.
We support research productivity through generous incentives and infrastructure. Teaching load is similar or better compared to similar research universities and can be done entirely in English. A new campus in Paris increases our geographical reach. We also assist in relocation and housing search, offer French language courses, and provide extensive benefits, including health insurance and private pension contributions.
Our main campus is Rennes, the capital of Brittany, a green city with a fabled history. Located just an hour from the Atlantic coast and less than two hours from Paris, the city has excellent international schools, cultural and natural attractions, and a growing technology and entrepreneurial ecosystem.
