Governance and strategy
MBS is under associative status (law 1901)
“MBS deeply believes that our differences are the future resources of successful and socially responsible organisations. Among the world’s leading schools, MBS wants to embody the power of inclusion of all diversities. MBS works every day to train and prepare students to participate in changing the future, in full awareness of the impact of their decisions on the world.”
At MBS, there are no shareholders. In fact, all the resources are invested to serve the teaching and social mission of our school.
MBS is a strict non-profit organization by legal status. It is and will always remain a non-profit school.
Montpellier Business School is an EESPIG (Private Higher Education Institution of General Interest). This French State label guarantees that all of our school’s resources are exclusively allocated to the public service mission of higher education.
