MBS at a glance

Founded in 1897 and member of the prestigious French Conference des Grandes Ecoles, Montpellier Business School holds the three international accreditations AACSB, EFMD-EQUIS and AMBA.

Ideally located in the South of France near the Mediterranean Sea, Montpellier is one of the most attractive city of France with a population of more than 500,000 people including 110,000 students.

MBS offers Bachelor, Master’s and MSc programmes as well as an Executive MBA and DBA programmes. Our degree programmes enrol approximately 4,000 students each year.

MBS is increasingly well-recognised in both French and international business school rankings.
For instance, its flagship Master’s programme has been ranked 59th or better in the Financial

Times Masters in Management Rankings for three years. It is ranked 12th on average in the French national rankings.

The quality of MBS research has been demonstrated through the quantity and quality of publications, resulting in a place of 4th in the national ranking of research among French business schools with more than 50 rank 1 publications over the last 3 years.

MBS values are present in its academic publications, the programmes content and the daily life and internal functioning of the School (Diversity Label). 60% of its faculty is international, like a quarter of its students.

MBS would provide support for relocation and integration in French environment for future employees and families. The international atmosphere of MBS – with more than half of its faculty and a quarter of its students being non-French natives – is also helpful. MBS leads the project to building a top-class new campus within the 3 next years.
