Chairs and Institutes serving sectoral research

In their research, NEOMA Business School faculty are committed to help companies understand their environment, transform challenges into competitive opportunities in a changing and increasingly complex environment.

The Chairs and Institutes of NEOMA Business School fully reflect these bridges between academic research and social issues.


Chairs are mutually beneficial research facilities for the School and business. Their purpose is to provide solutions and concrete insights on  a specific topic, directly related to the partner company's environment.

They focus on strategic research fields defined jointly by the company and the School, and are based on trust :

  • the company undertakes to supply researchers with valuable data
  • the research team undertakes to mobilise  the necessary resources and expertise to develop new knowledge, in line with the strategic objectives defined upstream.
