Why do business schools exist?

In France, universities cover many fields of learning (humanities, law, medicine, political science, literature, arts, etc.) but historically do not include business studies.

Specific management courses

For this reason, the first business schools were founded in the second half of the 19th century to offer courses of study geared towards management and administration.

The first business school outside Paris

Jules Siegfried and his brother, from a family of cotton merchants and merchants at heart, founded the first provincial business school in Le Havre in 1871, which later became EM Normandie.
