EM Normandie’s Master in Management in the top three 5-year post-baccalaureate Master’s programmes (Challenge 2023)


The Challenges 2023 ranking for business schools offering post-baccalaureate study was announced on 8 December 2022, placing EM Normandie’s Master in Management (Programme Grande Ecole) in the top 3 best 5-year post-baccalaureate programmes in France.

EM Normandie has consolidated its place in the top three best 5-year post-baccalaureate schools in the latest Challenges ranking. The school welcomes applicants via the SESAME competitive exam and has confirmed its position as a post-baccalaureate educational provider, offering a high-quality, state-recognised Master’s programme that attracts a increasing number of candidates each year.

Quentin Bedu graduated in 2021 and is now an IT consultant at Cap Gemini. He told Challenges what attracted him to EM Normandie: “less focus on theory, becoming bilingual quickly by studying abroad, acquiring business experience and learning the fundamentals of management before having to specialise”.

Lou Eglie-Richters, first year Master’s student, says: “I created my own tailor-made education. I gradually refined my options so that I could specialise in marketing. This year, I’m also doing some accounting, because I’m really tempted to go into entrepreneurship”.

Work-study programmes can reduce tuition fees

“It’s a huge investment, but an apprenticeship contract helps you manage costs. My EM Normandie Master’s didn’t cost me anything in the end, and I was actually earning €1,800 a month in my final work-study year at Allianz France”.
