Le Figaro Ranking of the Grandes Écoles de Commerce 2023: KEDGE Business School advances one spot and is ranked 8th

KEDGE confirms its position among the best French business schools and its Grande Ecole Programme is placed 8th in the 2023 Le Figaro ranking the Grandes Ecoles de Commerce offering Master-level degrees

The Le Figaro ranking of business schools is a leading ranking of French business schools. To determine the ranking, Le Figaro surveyed the 38 French business schools approved to award a Master degree for their Grande Ecole Programmes. The schools were then ranked based on three main categories: academic excellence, international reach, and relations with companies.


These are some of the aspects that have been carefully examined as part of the new pedagogical approach of the Grande Ecole Programme, Grow by doing®, which is built around a philosophy of "learning by doing", where the student is an active participant in his/her/their education and career in an international setting.

The editors at Le Figaro Etudiant highlighted two particular aspects of our programme: the school’s research and the exit salaries following graduation. 


The publications by professor-researchers as well as its performance in the Shanghai ranking also largely contributed to KEDGE’s progression in the ranking.


The high calibre academic staff, who hold degrees from top universities, actively carry out research and produce an ever-increasing number of publications. The work of KEDGE professors is a cornerstone of the school's academic excellence. 


The level of salaries earned by Alumni, both upon graduation and three years later, as well as the reputation of the companies that recruit them, which are among the most competitive in France, are also some of the strong points acknowledged by the Figaro.

“I am proud of KEDGE’s place in benchmark rankings such as the one published by Le Figaro today. We gained one spot, which is the fruit of significant work and a daily commitment from our entire team. Our position is a good illustration of KEDGE’s trajectory, which is carried by a high quality Grande Ecole programme which provides students an excellent education and strong employment prospects,” declared Alexandre de Navailles, General Director of KEDGE.
