About École des Ponts Business School
The École des Ponts Business School is accredited by AMBA, which is the International Association of MBAs since 1996. Located in Paris, the Business School has been delivering MBAs and management programmes since 1987 with nearly 6,000 graduates to date of their programmes worldwide. The School's approach is based on their mother school, the ENPC, which is one of France's prestigious 'Grandes Écoles', renowned for the excellence of its education, and the world's first elite civil engineering school, founded in 1747 by royal decree of Louis XV. The latest Nobel prize winner in economics, Jean Tirole, is an alumnus of the ENPC (which is also strong in math, economics, management, energy, materials, transportation and sustainable development). According to The Economist, EDP's MBA is the 20th leading MBA in continental Europe and the only MBA based in Paris city centre. Shanghai International MBA(SIMBA) - a SINO-Foreign MBA program jointly set by ENPC and Tongji University in Shanghai is ranked 2nd most influential Sino-Foreign MBA Program in China in 2010. CEOs of Fortune 500 companies are also amongst the Alumnis from École des Ponts. You may click HERE to discover these important connections.
