A leading business school must not only ensure its students adapt to a professional context but also prepare them to introduce the latest methods and techniques in management. Further, it must also enable them to develop this practice throughout their business careers. As a fundamental tenet of the school's approach, research continues to inform and develop both programmes and teaching.
The school's structure allows younger teachers to work on their doctorate programmes and pursue further research. School professors are active members of numerous scientific associations, both in France and internationally, and present their research at various conferences including 'Association Française de Marketing', Academy of Management, European Finance Association, and the American Finance Association. Various specialized business journals also host their work: Review of Financial Studies, Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis, Finance, 'Revue Française de Gestion, 'Décisions Marketing', 'Gerer et Comprendre'.
