With degrees from HEC Paris and the Skema Business School under her belt, her career combines academic excellence with high-level expertise in directing and designing academic programs. She will be putting her skills and talent to work developing TBS’s MS/MSc degrees.

Holding a PhD in the sciences of management, organisation and decision-making (HEC Paris), and a Master of Science in Business Administration and Entrepreneurship (Skema Business School), Annabel-Mauve Bonnefous has a solid track record as a university lecturer and educational manager.

She began her career at HEC Paris, where she spent 15 years teaching leadership and political intelligence for managers on the Executive Education degrees, while also designing and directing the academic and educational elements of several courses for company directors and managers.
While working as a lecturer at the Institute for Political Science (SciencesPo) in Paris, she was also associate professor at the NEOMA Business School where she was head of the department of “Hommes et organisations” (People and Organisations). In addition, she is a business consultant and coach specialising in governance, reorganisation and managerial excellence.

Her academic activities have included creating innovative pedagogical methods which have received widespread recognition, including the Excellence and Innovation Award in teaching from NEOMA BS (2016), second prize CIDEGEF-FNEGE for pedagogical innovation (2011) and First Prize for Pedagogical Innovation from RMS (2010).

Key objectives within Toulouse Business School:

Annabel-Mauve Bonnefous has been entrusted with the strategic direction of TBS’s national and international activities relating to the Specialised Masters and the Masters of Science. She will be responsible for the profiling and organisation of in-house talent with a view to boosting its development and will be investing in the quality control of degree programs and the innovative teaching practices which they will channel.

“ I have been impressed by the quality of the Masters’ degrees at Toulouse Business School. The levels of satisfaction and post-degree employment for graduates of the MS and MSc programs are exceptional. I think that, in the first instance, the imperative is not so much to do things, but to let people know what we do. This school has everything it takes to become the first choice for students in France and overseas, and I will be investing all my efforts in achieving this ambition. »
