Jérôme Rive, President of IAE Lyon, has become the 12th President of the IAE Network after his election on Wednesday, June 13, 2012 at the IAE Congress in Poitiers. He will succeed Pierre Louart.
The IAE Network includes 31 institutes which deliver more than 800 degrees and represent 40,000 students and 1,200 lecturers and lecturer-researchers together with more than 6,000 expert practitioners.
The new management team aims to make the IAE, University Business Schools, stand out as the Business School brand within French Public Higher Education.
Serving as an educational space for innovation and a think-tank on management and business practices, the IAE Network also needs to be a proactive partner who can bear on national and European authorities in charge of regulating Higher Education and promoting Management.
The defended vision is also part of an attempt to support and assist IAE’s Deans in their missions and in their diversity on the basis of a common set of shared values. Finally, the network will strengthen its role as international representative and promoter of IAE’s activities.
In a period of radical structural transformations within the French University sector and the Management Education and Research areas, IAE play a more and more central part within French Higher Education. By establishing numerous links between Education, Research and Business Practices, they meet a wide range of social demands and company needs while raising questions and giving sense and meaning. IAE act together in promoting their acknowledged Business School model within French Universities.
United in their aim to gain Qualicert quality certification at national level and for some in the achievement of successfully completed projects or projects in the process of international accreditation, the IAE provide a reference and a standard of excellence while demonstrating that Higher Education fulfills its public service mission.
Anchored in the diversity of situations within their territories, IAE are regularly recognized for their excellent professional integration rate. Associated with 32 scientific research laboratories, they very actively support research in the field of Management Science.
