Our international partners
A powerful, dynamic and international network playing a key strategic role
Our international academic partnerships, agreements and exchanges take numerous forms and are clearly detailed via formalised agreements that are carefully developed and monitored to ensure that our most important assets (faculty, students and reputation), benefit from inspiring, innovative, and positive learning experiences.
We maintain regular contact with our partner institutions and believe that on-site visits are essential in guaranteeing a mutually beneficial long-term relationship. All our agreements are periodically re-assessed to ensure that they continue to provide high-quality, relevant advantages in line with our needs.
We are continually looking to expand our network with like-minded partners. If you would like more information or are interested in becoming a NEOMA partner, please contact the Director of International Development.
A wide range of agreements ensuring high-quality cooperation
Our international partnerships are governed by carefully-crafted agreements that ensure high-quality cooperation and programmes.
The following agreements are currently part of the array of collaborations in place:
- 1) Memorandum of Understanding: a Memorandum of Understanding enables NEOMA BS to begin negotiating a specific agreement with a partner school. The MOU is the precursor to all the types of cooperation described below, and confirms that the partner organisation is aligned with the mission, vision, values and aspirations of NEOMA BS.
- 2) Student Exchange Agreement: a Student Exchange Agreement provides for the equal exchange of students between NEOMA BS and an accredited international institution. Student Exchange Agreements are detailed, legally-binding contracts. The agreements’ provisions address the administrative concerns of both institutions, such as programme administration, tuition and credit exchange, student selection, declaration of responsibility regarding housing, transport, risk management, and advertising.
- 3) Double-Degree Agreement: a Double (Multiple)-Degree Agreement specifies the criteria and requirements to be honoured by the participating institutions as they collaborate in the delivery of one or more programmes in which both (or all) partners offer a degree.
- 4) Faculty Exchange Agreement: a Faculty Exchange Agreement enables faculty to participate in short-term exchanges in order to conduct research, teach and collaborate with scholars from the partner institution.
- 5) Multi-partner Strategic Alliance Agreement: a Multi-Partner Strategic Alliance Agreement enables two or more parties to pursue a set of agreed objectives while remaining independent organisations. Strategic alliances occur when two or more organisations join together to pursue mutually-beneficial activities.
A network based on rigorous criteria, providing mutual benefits
To ensure that each agreement is properly implemented and that all the institutions involved are completely satisfied, NEOMA Business School selects its partners very carefully.
This selection is based on rigorous criteria that benefit all parties:
- Relevance of the proposed agreement to the academic, research and service priorities and plans of the institution and the department proposing the agreement
- Alignment with the mission and the vision of the institution
- Anticipated benefits for students, faculty members and other internal and external stakeholders
- Evidence of institutional quality, including for reputation, international ranking and accreditation status
- Cost, feasibility and sustainability of proposed activities
- Possible risks for students, faculty members and the institution
