Governance structure

NEOMA Business School becomes an Establishment of Higher Education for Commerce (EESC) from 1st January 2018.

This new legal structure gives the School a new legal entity and a new Board of Directors. It is a major move towards its development ambitions.

NEOMA Business School is entering a new phase of development and this change of legal structure will fully support its plans. The School will be better placed to respond to the increasingly stringent demands of a constantly changing environment. This new setting will make it possible to broaden its sources of financing and to implement a policy of dynamic investment. The founding shareholders are the Chambers of Commerce of Marne-en-Champagne and Rouen Métropole, the NEOMA Business School association and the NEOMA ALUMNI association. This new legal structure will enhance independent management. NEOMA Business School will continue to work in close collaboration with the ICCs as its main preferential partners. This does not preclude the School from later broadening the capital to other investors to reinforce its resources and support its expansion.

The new Board of Directors of the School is made up of 24 members:

  • 6 representatives of the ICC of Marne in Champagne
  • 6 representatives of the ICC of Rouen Métropole
  • 6 independent administrators
  • 2 representatives of the teaching body
  • 1 representative of the administrative staff
  • 1 representative of the students
  • 1 representative of the Alumni
  • 1 representative of the NEOMA Foundation.

In accordance with the regulations relating to this new status, any future profit the establishment may make will not give rise to any distribution of dividends and will be allocated to the building up of reserves.

To complete this project, the Board of Directors may draw on the support of the Bureau. A direct offshoot of the Board of Directors, its role is to prepare major decisions for submission for consideration by the Board and to oversee the implementation of decisions taken by the Board.
