François Pierson, Chairman of KEDGE Business School's Board of Directors, with the full backing of Stanislas de Bentzmann, the School's future Chairman, presented Thomas Froehlicher’s successor, José Milano, to the Board of Directors, who met today to approve this proposal.

Thomas Froehlicher, Director General of KEDGE Business School, has announced that he will be leaving his post to focus on new projects.

I would like to express my deepest gratitude to Thomas Froehlicher for the three years he has spent leading the KEDGE Business School Group. His legacy includes an institution recognised as one of the world's top-tier business schools triple-accredited by EQUIS, AMBA and AACSB. It is a School with two Master's degrees with state approval for the maximum duration for all of its programmes
