The full-time faculty is comprised of lecturers-researchers, 90% of whom hold a PhD. 44% are international professors from over 30 different countries.
Due to the dynamics of the merger process, globalisation and the growth Kedge Business School is experiencing, it now boasts a substantial and incredibly diverse faculty, a strong asset in the face of new challenges in the fields of research and education.
KEDGE is one of the European leaders in academic research on management, with a very ambitious research output.
FIRST FRENCH MANAGEMENT RESEARCH SCHOOL
KEDGE produces the equivalent of one article in a top-ranking journal every day.
In the 2017 ranking of best schools for research in management performed by L'Etudiant, the leading French magazine covering student orientation, KEDGE Business School came out on top in France with a total of 103 articles across all categories published by its faculty in 2015.
This exceptional performance is the result of its excellence strategy applied since the School's creation in 2013.
With three Centres of Excellence: Marketing, Supply Chain and CSR, and five Centres of Expertise: Wine & Spirits, Innovation & Entrepreneurship, Health Management, Finance Reconsidered and Creative Industries & Culture, the School affirms its academic expertise on several key issues in management sciences.
The Bordeaux campus is located on the Talence university site, around 20 minutes outside of the city centre by tram. There are several location options available, either in Bordeaux
Where to stay ?
In terms of location, you can look at either Bordeaux or the Urban Community of Bordeaux (sometimes referred to as CUB in French) which includes the neighbouring towns, of which the closest to the school are Talence, Gradignan, and Pessac.
The liveliest areas of Bordeaux city centre are Hôtel de Ville, Quinconces, St Pierre, Capucins and Victoire. These last 3 are student neighbourhoods and very popular evening destinations, so are noisier than others.
Nansouty and St Genes are 2 quieter alternatives.
Tram B and buses provide transport links. For information on public transport in Bordeaux and CUB, please visit: http://www.infotbm.com
