The University - ESC Toulouse

ESC Toulouse is the "Grande Ecole" programme of Toulouse Business School thus belonging to the elite of the French education system. The “Master of Management” programmes are situated at ESC Toulouse.

It is a triple-crown accredited institution, having subsequently won accreditations by EQUIS; AACSB and AMBA.

Toulouse Business School was founded in 1903. After being situated in a 15th-century monastery in the old city for a long time, it has moved. The new “downtown” campus is situated close to the heart of the business complex right in the city centre while the hyper-modern “electronic” campus is located on the outskirts of the city.

Toulouse Business School today is one of the leading French graduate business schools. Its mission is to prepare students to take responsibility for leading positions, to develop their analytic, integrative, and interpersonal skills, and to lay the foundations for a process of lifelong learning.
