The Léonard de Vinci School of Management (Ecole de Management Léonard de Vinci or EMLV) is part of the Léonard de Vinci Group which was founded in 1995 and is made up of three schools: EMLV, ESILV (Engineering) and IIM ( Multimedia). The campus is situated in the heart of La Défense which is the most important business district in Paris, and its courses feature Digital Studies, Marketing, HR, Finance, Innovation and Entrepreneurial Studies among its strengths.
EMLV is a State-recognized school and its degree, which is approved by the Ministry of Higher Education and Research, confers the level of Master's on graduation. In 2017 EMLV was rated 25th among 38 schools in the annual Rankings of the journal l’Étudiant
, and 6th among those schools offering a five-year business program leading to a Master's qualification.
Internationalisation is a major priority for EMLV, which is a member of AACSB, EFMD and of Campus France. Over 4,000 students come to the Léonard de Vinci campus every year, and 10% of these are international students. Future engineers, managers and designers learn to live and work together across the boundaries of their initial training. The Léonard de Vinci Group offers double degrees and exchange courses and has partnerships with more than 110 universities across five continents.
