The Business School of social inclusion

Ouverture Sociale : IMT-BS consacre plus de 17% de ses ressources pour pérenniser l’ascenseur social

A leading public management school under the authority of the Ministry of the Economy, IMT-BS is the school of social inclusion. It provides its students with an exceptional ratio between the cost of education, the level of salary upon hiring, and the ability to find a job quickly and over the long term.

Our mission

Mixing Cultures

In 1979, the old Institut National des Télécommunications began training the engineers and managers at France Télécom (today known as Orange) on the same campus.  As the two different business cultures starting mixing together and sharing their work, new synergies began to emerge.  Today, this hybrid approach remains the driving force behind our Business School at Institut Mines-Télécom, France’s leading Engineering School Group.

Helping our students achieve their full potential

Institut Mines-Télécom Business School has always been at the forefront of digital and societal transformations.  As a Public and socially inclusive higher education institution, we take great pride in welcoming and individually supporting students from a wide range of backgrounds.  We help them develop the inter-communication skills and personal qualities required for a successful future in a constantly changing world. 

Bringing talents together

Technology is accelerating the transformation of the world as we know it, meaning that business organisations have to be more agile, open and increasingly horizontal in the way they work.  They therefore need talented, responsibly-minded individuals who are capable of taking initiatives and inspiring experts from different fields to work together.

At IMT-BS, this is our mission.  We aim to equip each individual talent with the knowledge and skills to make a key contribution to collective change for a more responsible world.

Our values

Fostering the Engineer-Manager dual culture on our campus

The 6-hectare campus is located in Evry-Courcouronnes, in the Grand Paris Sud local area. It is an American-style campus shared between Institut Mines-Telecom Business School and Télécom SudParis.

All year long, students from both schools live and work there together.

They share housing, community life, cultural and sports activities, language and humanities courses, several educational programs as well as some specialization majors (in the Master 2 year). 

They acquire more than just skills: a dual culture, a hybrid engineer-manager mindset that enables them to work on a daily basis with engineers in companies, to carry out digital transformation projects with the specialized engineers in their company. 

This in-depth blending is permanent, regular, and omnipresent.
