NEOMA Business School opens the doors of its new Paris campus
Published on 07 July 2021 by NEOMA
After several months of works and renovation, the new Paris campus of NEOMA Business School, in the heart of the 13th arrondissement, is ready to welcome students to the new academic year in September 2021. With a surface area of 6500m2, this new city centre campus, owned by the School, is able to accommodate 1400 students. It offers a wide range of programmes, from post- baccalaureate to Executive Education, and constitutes one of the major growth drivers of the School, fully embodying the digital and teaching transformation to which the School is committed.
A campus offering an extensive range of training
After almost two years of work, the new Paris campus of NEOMA Business School is opening its doors for the academic year beginning in September 2021. This new site, which replaces the current campus in the 9th arrondissement, has a surface area of 6500 m2 spread over five floors with the capacity to accommodate 1400 students. It will serve the development objectives of the School by enabling it to widen its programme offer in Paris. “Here we can deliver training from post-baccalaureate level to Executive training via Masters of Science and Specialised Masters. Now the post-baccalaureate students of the Paris region will be able to begin their training in Paris before joining the campuses of Reims and Rouen,” explains Delphine Manceau, Dean of NEOMA Business School.
A campus adapted to the teaching of tomorrow
NEOMA has given priority to constructing a modern campus that respects the environment. With 25 teaching rooms equipped with state-of-the art teaching facilities, a fully adaptable auditorium, co-working spaces, multi-purpose rooms, several rooms for creativity and video-conferencing tools, this new campus is fully adapted to the teaching of tomorrow, combining in-person and remote learning. “We have designed this campus as a place of innovation, and aimed to create teaching spaces adapted to new ways of learning,” says Delphine Manceau.
Open to the whole of the NEOMA community, this new site includes space reserved for the Association of Graduates of the School as well as an incubator. The campus also includes an area dedicated to the Wellness centre, which aims to improve student health and well-being.
A campus located in an up-and-coming district
“We chose to locate this new campus in the city centre of Paris,” points out Delphine Manceau. “Paris is a young and international metropolis, full of life, with great cultural, intellectual and entrepreneurial wealth, and locating this campus here will reinforce our attractiveness, especially to international students.”
The new NEOMA campus is located in the heart of the Butte aux Cailles district, in the 13th arrondissement of Paris. With several major institutions of higher education (the Ecole des Gobelins, the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Paris, ENSAM, etc.) and business structures such as Station F, the 13th arrondissement is an excellent hub for a university of international stature to offer a particularly rich student life to the students of NEOMA Business School.

This development project enables NEOMA to be the owner of its campus for the first time in its history. “NEOMA is in a period of major expansion and this large-scale project perfectly reflects the vibrant growth to which the School is committed,” analyses Delphine Manceau. “Being the owner of this new campus is very important because it positions this project firmly as part of our long-term development.”
