In the framework of the School’s strategy to provide students with a unique, intercultural pedagogical experience and to be internationally recognized for its quality research, permanent professors have a dual mission combining teaching and research. They will join the other members of the School’s international faculty at the Lille and Paris-La Défense campuses.

The School is also delighted to welcome a number of new lecturers, teaching and research assistants, as well as new part-time postdoctoral researchers to its academic staff at the beginning of this year.

In addition to their teaching activities, permanent faculty members are actively engaged in research in all the different domains of management and economics. These activities support both their teaching and the interaction with companies and other stakeholders. The high quality of their research and publications, together with the international nature of our faculty, further contributes to the relevance of their work and to the reputation of the School.
