Growth and Higher Standards for the Bachelor and Masters in Management Grande Ecole Programme this year


Almost 20% increase in student population in the Bachelor and Masters programmes since 2009

At the beginning of the 2011-2012 school year, Burgundy School of Business is pleased to announce the rise in student population in our two flagship programmes: the Bachelor in Marketing & Business and the Masters in Management Grande Ecole Programme.

The Bachelor has recently changed in dimension as it is the first common programme in our strategic alliance with Oxford Brookes University. There are currently 96 first year students, compared to 76 in 2009. This 26% increase confirms the strong interest in the degree and the school will be welcoming the first group of Oxford Brookes students mid-September.

426 new students will be starting the Masters in Management Grande Ecole Programme, 65 more than two years ago. The overall student population has gone up by 18% over the past 2 years. The most significant increase can be seen in the Passerelle competitive entrance exam, with an increase of 28%. These solid figures go hand in hand with a continual rigourous selection process and increasingly higher admission standard.
