At NEOMA BS, we use an immersion and experiential approach

  • “Active teaching”: a relevant combination of theoretical content, feedbacks from corporate experiences, practical cases and case studies / simulations co-organized with partners;
  • Implementation through presentation of theory and concepts illustrated by feedbacks; coached group works; presentation, interaction and discussions.


We operate with audit firms (the “Big4” and Mazars); consulting companies (such as CGI; Wavestone; etc.); companies using BI systems and tools.

NEOMA BS also operates with IMA (Institute of Management Accountants), one of the largest and most respected association focused on advancing the management accounting profession. It offers its members exclusive access to the CMA programme.
