Financing your studies

No accepted student should have to give up on a NEOMA Business School education for financial reasons

For several years now, NEOMA Business School has been actively committed to social responsiveness and promoting all forms of diversity. Today, the school goes even further by continuing to open the doors of its programmes to the best students, regardless of their personal circumstances. Believing that no student should have to give up on NEOMA Business School for financial reasons, the school has developed several financial aid solutions with support from the NEOMA Foundation.

Keep in mind!
With a rate of 33% of students receiving aid (CROUS scholarships and apprenticeships), NEOMA Business School is the number one school in the Top 10 in France.

Financing your studies

Financial aid solutions

Continuing Education

Whether you’re a company or an employee, there are several plans for financing a professional training programme. Co-financing can be provided in different forms:

The CPF: Personal Training Account “Compte Personnel de Formation” (law from March 5, 2014)

The CPF succeeds the DIF. It is credited in hours (with a 150-hour limit) and allows employees to access skills training.
The training programmes at NEOMA Business School are eligible for the CPF. You can use your allotted hours to finance these programmes.

More information – COPANEF List (National inter-professional committee for employment and training) – except for training specific to a sector of activity/branch.

The CIF: educational leave “Congé Individuel de Formation”

The CIF allows all employees over the course of their professional lives and at their initiative and individually, to enter training programmes offering skills and qualifications, or allow them to develop or reorient their careers. The financing is handled by the OPACIF (FONGECIF, branch OPCA, or AGECIF) for the programme fees based on the professional project of the employee. The employees stay in their positions at work and the training courses are taken during work hours.

There is also the possibility of doing training outside of work and the educational costs are taken care of.

Training Plan

The training plan groups together all the measures selected by the employee regarding the company strategy and its development projects: training initiatives, skills reports and qualification through professional experience (VAE)

Each year companies organise this plan based on the training needs noted during annual staff interviews. 

You can enquire with the HR department or the training department at your company.

Professionalization period

The purpose of the professionalization period is to encourage employee retention of certain employees through a qualifying work-training programme.

Financed by the professionalization funds, this training programme can take place during or outside working hours. The financing is handled by OPCA bodies according to the branch’s agreements. The programme must be alternated with professional activity, during or outside working hours.

Professionalization contract

A professionalization contract is a work contract that comes with a work-study training programme that aims to integrate new employees and train them in the company’s different job posts. It is applied according to the age of the employee (see the plans for those around 26 years of age).

You can enquire with the local OPCA branch.
