History & values
A BUSINESS SCHOOL INSPIRED BY THE MODEL OF THE POLITICAL STUDIES INSTITUTES…
Our institution has its roots in our vision and determination: to create a completely new type of Business School, respecting a clear imperative: balance. Uniting features of Business Schools with those of Political Science Institutions, the curriculum combined technical disciplines with humanities and, for the first time, included international experience and an entrepreneurial dimension.
… AND BY THE PRINCIPLES OF PSYCHOMETRICS
Inspired by the principles of psychometrics, in which the founder’s family background had given him a keen interest, training was based on the values of attention, listening and a passion for pedagogy with the objectives of progress and fulfilment for students in the respect of each individual and the common good.
FOSTERING FREE SPIRIT AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP
INSEEC U. came into being from the pedagogical and strategic cohesion of our schools, sharing the same values of openness and commitment in the service of critical thinking, imagination and an entrepreneurial spirit.
The tradition of questioning the modern world, retained throughout the 120-year existence of HEIP – our Political Science Institute; the culture of innovation which has characterized the ECE Engineering School for over a century… INSEEC U. has a philosophy enriched by the educational principles of its federation with a clear objective: producing free spirits ready to explore a world of ideas and to invent and become citizens of a responsible, collaborative society.
