    Campus Features


    • Bordeaux

    The new Bordeaux campus has been designed to be a living space. Spread over 35,000 m2, it has dedicated work and chat rooms, and sports and relaxation areas. The campus in Bordeaux was designed taking into account the changing habits and preferences of today's students, and how those changes affect their living spaces.

    • Marseille

    KEDGE Business School continually invests in substantial logistics resources, both in terms of its educational infrastructures and cutting-edge technological resources. The campus in Marseille is divided between different sites: the Luminy campus nestled on the edge of the Calanques National Park, and the Joliette campus located in the heart of the city.

    • Paris

    In 2015, the group created a new establishment in Paris (12th arrondissement), a vibrant hub of activity where students, teaching staff and businesses can meet, exchange and interact. KEDGE made the decision to remain at the heart of the city in order to facilitate public mobility between its different sites, be near businesses, benefit from their dynamism and provide a high level of service.

    • Toulon

    Toulon campus is ideally located in the heart of the city, in the brand new “creativity and knowledge district” and across from the train station since January 2020.

    • Shanghai

    The main campus is located in the Xuhui district of Shanghai and is home to several educational institutions. The buildings demonstrate a mixture of American architectural influences with Chinese style. KEDGE has two campuses in Shanghai: the Shanghai Jiao Tong University campus and the campus within the Franco-Chinese Institute.

    • Suzhou

    The opening of the Suzhou campus in 2010 was part of an ongoing policy which began in 2003 to develop our activity in China, and more specifically to contribute to the creation of the Franco-Chinese Institute (Sino-French Institute) in partnership with Renmin University of China, one of the country’s most prestigious universities founded in Beijing in 1937.

    • Dakar

    KEDGE Business School in Dakar welcomes students since 2008. The campus is ideally located within the dynamic district of Sacré Cœur III. Dakar runs two higher education programmes, the KEDGE Bachelor course and a Master in Management, along with executive education programmes.

    • Abidjan

    The Abidjan campus opened its doors in September 2020, driven by the President of the BEM group already present in Dakar, Dr Pape Madické Diop. The school's ambition is to expand more widely on the African continent. The Business School, repeatedly named the best business school in French-speaking Africa by the magazine Jeune Afrique, offers initial and executive education programmes from Bachelor to Doctorate level.
