Following a hearing on the direction of IAE Savoie Mont Blanc, the network’s Extraordinary General Assembly, which consists of a group of directors, voted unanimously in favour of including the Institute in the IAE France network. This decision following an audit of all IAE locations completed April 1, 2015, by Jérome Rive, President of the network and director of IAE in Lyon, and Virginie de Barnier, Vice-president and director of IAE of Aix-Marseille.

An extensive network of national and international influence

The IAE France is the most important network for management sciences in France. Officially established in 1957, the National Association of IAE became IAE FRANCE in 2014 in order to promote efforts to develop and coordinate the IAE initiative. In that time, IAE has acquired more than 45,000 students and delivered almost 1,000 diplomas specializing in the management of businesses and organizations, both public and private (e.g., Marketing, Finance, Human Resources, Accounting, Management Control, Audit, Public Management, International Affairs, Logistics, Purchasing). Network membership provides a collaborative identity and enhances the national and international visibility of the ensemble of schools of management across different universities. It also encourages exchanges of good practices, cooperation among institutes, and pedagogical and scientific innovation. 

How IAE Savoie Mont Blanc contributes to the organization

Offering programmes in the domains of management, finance, commerce, tourism, and international management, IAE Savoie Mont Blanc is known for developing value and practices in conjunction with those held by IAE France more broadly. Its integration is the result of the involvement of 72 teachers and researchers, 350 outside contributors, 39 administrative personnel, and the Business Club—all of which are strongly invested in IAE activities. With its 2,100 students; who pursue professional careers, build on academic research, and help expand the business network, IAE Savoie Mont Blanc is the 32nd contributing member of the IAE France network.

Point of pride: Qualicert certification 

Following its integration into the IAE France network, IAE Savoie Mont Blanc was audited on April 5-6, 2016, by the SGS society, a world leader in certification. At the end of these two days, IAE obtained the Qualicert certification, in strong confirmation of the quality of its functions and programmes. This certification also is fundamental for validating its definitive entry into the network. 
This certification affirms that IAE Savoie Mont Blanc meets a long list of criteria related to the quality of its education, the pedagogical and scientific competencies of its personnel, the efficacy of the administrative organization, and its business relations.
