Our teaching and research includes questioning the managerial practices of all disciplines. In this way NEOMA BS is helping transform organisations to turn them into players in a decarbonised, digital, circular, and inclusive economy. Supported by methods and tools for developing reflective skills, they enable our students to acquire a humanist culture and an environmental perspective which contribute to the emergence of prosperity that preserves ‘human and ecological capital’.
Sustainable transitions, a training initiative for NEOMA
The circular and bio-economy, the green new deal… There are so many changes taking place in our society today. Addressing the concerns surrounding sustainable transitions and preparing students to consider this reality during their professional careers has become a major goal for NEOMA, which is reflected in the range of new initiatives undertaken since the start of the new school year.

The Master in Management NEOMA BS course,
redesigned for the 2020 academic year, is delivered around 3 key modules: CSR, soft skills for the future, and sustainability transition. From Ethics of the Contemporary World, via Accountancy for the Common Good, to Collective Intelligence for Responsible Innovation, students are encourage to be aware of the issues in the humanist transformation of businesses and in the ecological transition. They also develop cross-cutting skills known as ‘soft skills’ that are now increasingly sought after, such as Interpersonal Relations and Critical Thinking. We also help them aim towards the new professions, as responsible architects of the world of tomorrow.
With their first certified course, Finance for Tomorrow and NEOMA Business School launch a partnership to promote sustainable finance
Finance for Tomorrow, a branch of the organisation Paris EUROPLACE, whose aim is to make green, sustainable finance a driving force in the development of the financial centre of Paris, has partnered with the full-time Advanced Master in International Financial Analysis at NEOMA Business School. This partnership will make it possible to significantly enhance teaching focussed on green, sustainable finance in this course, in particular by consolidating the contributions from professionals in the sector. Furthermore, it reinforces the availability of content offering the students real areas of investigation and a supervisory framework for professional theses. The NEOMA course is therefore the first course to be certified by Finance for Tomorrow. Read more

The Chair of Industrial Bioeconomy at NEOMA BS
The Chair has since 2012 been studying the contribution of the bioeconomy to the ecological transition. Bioeconomy means the transitional movement towards the use of plants to substitute fossil resources. Along with the circular economy and the development of green energies, this is one of the major European and worldwide projects to achieve the transition. NEOMA Business School is the only Business School in the world with an economy-management team devoted to this issue.
The Chair is supported by NEOMA Business School, the Urban Community of Greater Reims, the Marne-en-Champagne Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and the foundation of the Paris-Reims site. Researchers at the Chair of Bioeconomy at NEOMA BS are studying the way companies are developing new low-carbon products, how innovations in bioeconomy could make it possible to change the paradigm of the current economy and how could this transition benefit the regions.
