Rennes School of Business

Rennes School of Business (formerly known as the École Supérieure de Commerce de Rennes or ESC Rennes) is a French business school located in Rennes, the capital of Brittany. ESC Rennes belongs to the group of small and competitive French Grandes Écoles, institutions of higher education specializing in one or two fields.

The world has become a “global village” where economies are closely interrelated, politically, socially and culturally, and management schools have to face these new challenges.  ESC Rennes School of Business intends to prepare globally responsible pioneers via programs taught in English by an international full-time faculty, with students coming from all over the world, international research cooperation, program development with international partners and international faculty exchange.  All of these are key features of ESC Rennes School of Business. As a consequence, managing diversity and being international are embedded in the school’s organizational culture and are directly experienced by everyone on campus.
