BEM and Euromed Management Merge to Create KEDGE Business School
PR Newswire BORDEAUX and MARSEILLES, France, November 5, 2012
BORDEAUX and MARSEILLES, France,November 5, 2012/PRNewswire/ --
InJanuary 2012, BEM and Euromed Management announced arapprochementto create a European centre of excellence for business education. Our objective: to become within 5 years one of the best 15 leading European Schools.
http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20121105/567576 This merger will allow the new school to achieve the international standards required to remain a 'Triple Crown' accredited school and to offer a global outreach to all its stakeholders. The mission ofKEDGE Business Schoolis to meet international challenges in research whilst developing new and innovative teaching programmes.
The school will thus become theleading French research group in managerial sciences, a development strategy in emerging markets will be implemented, in particular towards Asia, and new ways of teaching and business skill development will be designed.
These ambitions have led us to find a new name and visual identity, a global brand to support this new school and its international ambitions;KEDGEBusiness Schoolis our new identity.
This is a brand with its roots in France but one that is open to new horizons, an easy- to pronounce, positive name in different cultures and languages. In English the word "kedge" means a small anchor attached to a line for moving a ship. KEDGE thus means going in a new direction, towards new destinations, a turning point in exploration. This name symbolises the link between our member schools, but it is also the symbol of the link between people and evokes the need of being anchored within our eco-systems and reminds us of our environmental responsibilities.
st The legal merger between BEM and Euromed Management will come into force on 1July, 2013.
KEDGE Business Schoolwill be governed by a Board presided by François PIERSON, the Euromed Management Chairman and a Vice-Chairman to be appointed by the Bordeaux Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
