The IPA (Institute for preparation to business) was created in 1955 and opened in Lautman Street, in the old buildings of the former Law and Medicine faculty of Toulouse. Its main mission was to train engineers and managers to the modern techniques of management, and to deliver them a recognized diploma: the CAAE (certificate of training in business administration).
