Founded in Le Havre in 1871, Ecole de Management de Normandie is one of the oldest established French business schools. Incorporated as a Higher Education & Research non-profit association (under the 1901 Act) and operating under private law, EM Normandie operates 5 campuses in Caen, Deauville, Le Havre, Paris & Oxford.


Ecole de Management de Normandie is offering:

  • Bachelor Programme
  • Grande Ecole Programme
  • Master of Science Programmes
  • Summer schools


Since 2003, EM Normandie has given new dynamic impetus to its research activities in the form of a research laboratory: Métis. This research lab hosts the School's lecturer-researchers under all three research axes. Not only was research thus able to allow a serious and progressive approach to Faculty development and support, but also to structure activities linked to the School’s Mission, thus generating genuine and long-lasting imbedding of research within EM Normandie as a whole.


  • To optimize professional integration of our young graduates and respond more adequately to increased demands from the part of recruiters, the School has strengthened students’ ‘Career Track Scheme’.
  • This progressive support track helps students clarify their professional competencies and individual skills. They will be thus able to draw up a career project that is both concrete and pragmatic, fully relevant to their ambitions and job market opportunities.
  • Over twenty HR experts and professional coaches facilitate this multimodal scheme that comprises also class sessions: analyzing one’s professional and personal path, clarifying one’s skills, searching for information and developing a networking approach.

Student services

  • The International Development Coordinators accompany international students throughout their study abroad experience. They also help students with lodging, banking, immigration, etc., allowing non-French speakers and others to minimize cause for stress and maximize integration.
  • The International Office organizes the orientation days before the start of programmes in collaboration with the Students’ Association.

Housing services

A list of different types of accommodation (private shared rentals, individual flats, student halls of residence – CROUS- , or private residences) will be sent by email during-June by your coordinator. Once the list is sent to the students, the distribution will be based on a “first come/ first served” basis. Late registration mean fewer choices.
