The very high level of academic research produced feeds into the curriculum and enriches the training programmes.

It enables us to support the school's partners, whether companies or public administrations, which wish to innovate or transform themselves in a global context subject to increasingly disruptive technological, environmental or societal changes.

KEDGE students are the first to benefit from international advances in this field.

This excellent result is the fruit of constant and sustained investment in research at KEDGE. It illustrates the priority we give to the impact of our research, for all our ecosystems. A huge well done to all the teams.
