INSEEC U. is a private multidisciplinary higher education and research institution working in the fields of Management, Engineering, Communication & Digital Media and Political Science, based in Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux, Chambéry-Savoie, London, Geneva, Monaco, San Francisco, Shanghai and Abidjan, which trains 28,000 students and 5,000 managers every year.


A major player in the French educational landscape, INSEEC U. offers a new teaching model adapted to the challenges resulting from ongoing economic, digital, organizational, environmental and societal transition.

Building upon research firmly rooted in the realities of today’s world, a capacity for prospective analysis, close ties to business and an international network, INSEEC U. draws on all the talents and all disciplines, allowing its teams, who share its passion for transmitting knowledge, the freedom to undertake projects, design new learning methods and seek out the most promising learning pathways for the future of its students. INSEEC U. deploys innovation to support multiple success stories.



INSEEC U.’s locations in the heart of major cities enable our students to benefit from the economic and cultural drive of the local markets. They also give INSEEC U. the opportunity to contribute to the life and development of an urban ecosystem and enhance INSEEC U.’s positioning and reach outside France.
We host international researchers, professors and students – proof of the appeal of our programs abroad. Foreign students represent 25% of the total enrollment and our permanent or visiting researchers and lecturers include 92 nationalities, thus contributing to the multicultural experience INSEEC U. seeks to provide.

INSEEC U. was founded in Bordeaux but quickly developed programs in Paris and Lyon. Expanding to Chambéry in 2012 provided the opportunity to enrich its training offer with a “sports studies” option through the CESNI [Center for Studies for National and International Sportspeople], a reference for professional retraining for high level sports professionals; and a complete range of language courses and services provided by La Cité des Langues, meeting the requirements of individual and professional clients.

INSEEC’s first campus abroad, the London site in the Marylebone district, paved the way for further international locations. Monaco focused on sport, luxury and finance, Geneva specializing in courses in creation and digital media, Shanghai providing ongoing education in excellence in customer relations, then San Francisco, headquarters for innovation and business incubator for start-ups in the digital economy.

INSEEC has been present in China for close to 20 years, through a representative office in Shanghai (later transferred to Beijing) and partnerships with leading institutions: a Joint DBA with Tsinghua-RITS in Shenzhen, Joint Executive MBA with FUDAN in Shanghai, a Master’s degree with UIBE in Shanghai.

The attractiveness of its programs means that today INSEEC U. has close to 600 Chinese students locally and in France and 4 000 active alumni.

INSEEC U. recently established a branch of IFG Executive Education in La Côte d’Ivoire [Ivory Coast]. Already present in Africa thanks to a strong Alumni network and partnerships with major African companies, the school aims to develop its offer of programs designed for managers looking for locally based training with a significant online component. Since 2018, INSEEC U. has been offering joint/double/multiple degree programs in partnership with universities, based on a unique digital ecosystem resulting in a 98% success rate. 60% of teaching is delivered through e-learning, completed by Learning Expeditions to our international campuses.
