Our mission is to develop—in collaboration with economic actors within the region (i.e., Haute Savoie and Savoie)—responsible managers and entrepreneurs, as well as strong foundations to flourish in regional, national, and international businesses. IAE offers programmes from Bac +1 to Bac + 8.
IAE Savoie Mont Blanc, through its research laboratory IREGE, strives for a greater understanding of economic and management sciences. Student-researchers integrate their research work into their classroom assignments.
The Institute works in constant collaboration with economic actors in the area who contribute to its development. In particular, IAE works with the Corporate Club, an innovative model of relations between businesses and universities.
By offering career training dedicated to management, IAE Savoie Mont Blanc combines education with the professional world. Due to its appealing geographic location, IAE has long benefitted from a programme that is open to international and differentiated (tourism, hospitality, event management) interests, spanning the vast range of regional training in management.
A few words from our dean, Claire Salmon
“IAE Savoie Mont Blanc has key assets that distinguish it as a superior innovative teaching institution by having developed professional courses backed both by academic research and a business structure network. IAE SMB is also original in the multi-disciplinary approach of its pedagogical teams, which integrate vast numbers of collaborators from the business world, as well as international exchanges which contribute to the development of collaborative programmes with partners across the border. Finally, IAE SMB has worked to develop specific competencies in our region, the Rhone-Alpin, enabling it to address the particular needs of our dynamic territory by continuously adapting, changing, and creating programmes.
Luc Blanchet, President, Director General of Botanic, President of the Council of IAE Savoie Mont Blanc
“My support for IAE Savoie Mont Blanc stems from my connection to our territory, the Savoy region, where it is absolutely critical to our local economy that we offer students a favourable environment and supervision for their success and their professional integration.”
Set in exceptional surroundings between lakes and mountains, IAE is active on two campuses:
Campus at Annecy-le-Vieux
