Every year, the Conference of Grandes Écoles (CGE) conducts a survey of new graduates from the Grandes Écoles to assess the quality of their integration into the professional world. Institut Mines-Télécom Business School boasts excellent results: more than 74% of students are recruited before the end of their studies, which certifies the attraction of the IMT-BS programs amongst employers.
Above average performance amongst French schools
The Institut Mines-Télécom Business School vaunts results above the average of other schools with regard to most indicators:
- 74.4% of students had found a job before finishing their program, almost 10% more than the average of French business schools (65%);
- More than 9 out of 10 new IMT-BS graduates found a job in the two months following graduation, whereas the average for other Grandes Écoles was 8 of 10;
- 94% of IMT-BS graduates were hired on permanent contracts, almost 12% above the average for other French Grandes Écoles business schools (82.2%);
- The average starting salary has increased over that of last year to break through the €43,000 mark including bonuses with salary levels abroad being the most interesting (+10%); these figures are also above the average for competing schools (the average salary in France, including bonuses, stands at €41,336).
These results bear witness to the high added value of the school as well as to the excellent competitiveness of the Institut Mines-Télécom Business School graduates on the job market. They also confirm the growing appeal amongst businesses for candidates trained at IMT-BS: graduates with all the advantages of business school training but who are also very close to the engineering culture thanks to the school’s positioning in the leading group of engineering schools in France and to the very close ties (double diplomas, curriculum, entrepreneurship, associations) formed throughout the program with students from Télécom SudParis, the sister engineering school that has shared the Evry campus with IMT-BS since 1979.
