IAE Toulouse becomes Toulouse School of Management

This institutional rebranding is the outcome of an intense internal reflection on the school’s future as a part of the prestigious University of Toulouse. Renowned both regionally and nationally, TSM is eager to make its mark on the European and international stage.

Rebranding: a Vital Part of a New Strategy

Over the past five years, TSM has put in place a rigorous new international strategy by recruiting internationally recognised researchers and professors, creating master’s programmes entirely taught in English, and forming numerous partnerships with universities around the world. “IAE Toulouse becomes Toulouse School of Management. By taking this next step we're expressing a clear ambition: to train managers who are able to seize opportunities in a global business environment and to meet the needs of companies competing on a global scale. Toulouse School of Management offers a new pathway for developing the talents of a community of enterprising and socially responsible students,” explains Hervé Penan, Director of TSM.

A Change for All

“The students, their parents, our partners, and TSM alumni are and continue to be naturally very attached to the school’s image. Gaining their support for this project was vital in creating this new identity. The entire community is now behind the project, from faculty, administrative staff, students, and alumni, to our economic and institutional partners. The project will serve a social purpose and help us establish a global presence. Toulouse School of Management is a top school within a renowned university and this rebranding presents a tangible opportunity for both students and the school’s partners to become a major global presence. It is within this optic along with ambition, enthusiasm, and respect for our history and established values, that we carry forward towards the path ahead: TSM.” Hervé Penan, Director of TSM

A New Motto

Our new motto “The path ahead” simultaneously symbolises the future that awaits TSM students and the path that lies before them to become socially responsible and enterprising managers. TSM accompanies its students in achieving this goal by providing a rigorous environment that maximizes their potential as students and as people leaving them with a myriad of options at the end of their time at TSM.

TSM Today and Tomorrow

With 3,000 full-time, work-study, and executive education students, 35 Master’s programmes, an excellent employment rate of recent graduates, a nationally recognized research laboratory, excellent academic facilities, a renowned doctoral school, and internationally acclaimed teaching staff, TSM is and will remain a top school of management. The school committed itself to an international accreditation process so it may remain up to the international standards to meet the needs of companies competing on a global scale. TSM, a distinguished institution alongside an esteemed university, is a place of significant growth for its students and a viable opportunity for its partners.
