KEDGE Business School is a leading international business and management school based in Bordeaux, Dakar, Marseille, Paris, Suzhou, Shanghai, Abidjan and Toulon. Ranked 35th best business school in Europe and 22nd worldwide for our Executive MBA by the Financial Time, we support businesses and their future managers in driving and anchoring needed change.

KEDGE Business School develops the skills of tomorrow's leaders and provides all learners with the means to better understand today's changing world and master its technological, social and environmental challenges.

It offers 31 management courses for students and professionals, as well as tailor-made courses for businesses at national and international level. KEDGE Entrepreneurship, the school's entrepreneurial branch, aims to support entrepreneurship, innovation and creativity through mechanisms, training and an ecosystem bringing together all types of populations, and supports 600 entrepreneurs each year in its 4 incubators. Kedge Business School stands out for its commitment to Africa. It is currently running several projects to support entrepreneurs in Côte d'Ivoire (Meet Africa 2), Senegal and throughout West Africa.  

The support formulas are personalised and adapted to the needs of their clients. Its project partners are numerous: the European Union in Africa, the Institute for Research and Development, Expertise France, the French Development Agency, etc. Kedge Business School's technical support programmes target projects in pre-incubation (from the idea to the first prototype or MVP) and in incubation, and offer personalised support services, coaching, participation in workshops, support for the launch and development of entrepreneurial activity, among others.

Other programmes targeting projects in the acceleration phase focus on support services for growth, internationalisation and fundraising, as well as connections with VCs and business angels.
