EM Normandie has moved up 3 places in the Le Point 2022 rankings for business schools
Le Point’s 2022 league tables for Grandes Écoles business schools were released on Thursday 17 March 2022. EM Normandie’s Master’s in Management has moved up an impressive 3 places, coming in in joint 16th place, with ICN Business School.
This ranking is based on 6 topics:
- teaching: level of supervision, double degree agreements with French institutions, graduate TOEIC scores, research chairs, etc.
- international: percentage of foreign students and teachers, portfolio of partner universities for foreign placements and double degrees, etc.
- development of professional skills: employment rate and salaries of recent graduates, percentage of students on work-study programmes, percentage of graduates who found their own companies, etc.
- selectiveness: average baccalaureate grade for students, percentage of ‘Very good’ grades, etc.
- research: number and quality of research articles published in 2020
- accreditations: duration of the Master’s degree and visa, international accreditations (AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA)
Work-study programmes restored to their former glory
This ‘Grandes Écoles Special’ supplement addresses the boom in work-study programmes in university courses and business schools. Even during the Covid period, the number of apprentices continued to grow in business schools. ‘We saw a 100% employment rate’, stated Elian Pilvin, Dean of EM Normandie. He also explained that ‘work-study programmes accelerate economic growth and are a catalyst for integration and social diversity.’
International: choosing between campus and placement
In spite of the considerable disruptions of the past 2 years, international mobility and the popularity of foreign placements remain strong among students. The issue of Le Point sets out the 2 models: relocated campuses and foreign partner universities. The effects of the health crisis have shown the benefits of relocated campuses, as Elian Pilvin explained: ‘When 50% of the places at universities abroad were closed, we relocated our students to our Oxford and Dublin campuses, and gave them an experience abroad in spite of everything.’ Thibaut, a student at EM Normandie whose foreign placement in Asia was cancelled but who was able to attend the Oxford campus, described the experience: ‘Lessons are in English and the administration speaks French just in case, but English is preferred.’ Most of the professors come from London universities. Outside of the EM Normandie building, we rub shoulders with Oxford and Brookes students, when we see them at social events.’
