About the school

Ecole Polytechnique is a leading French engineering school. The school offers management courses to strongly selected engineering students with a high-level scientific background and a pluri-disciplinary curriculum. Ecole Polytechnique is developing Master’s degrees in Science and Technology, bachelor’s degrees, and executive education programs in addition to the historical polytechnicien engineering degree and PhD programs. Because of the identity of the school and its role in the development of science and technology, innovation management strategy and entrepreneurship are crucial in these programs.

Ecole Polytechnique is located in Palaiseau, (about 30 min from Paris) within an ecosystem of higher education institutions (HEC, Ecole Centrale, Sup optic, Telecom, Agro-ParisTech …), companies (EDF, Danone, Carrefour, Thales, Safran…) and research centers (CEA, INSERM, CNRS …) called Plateau de Saclay. Because of the scope and excellence of the research centers of the school and the strength of its alumni network, Ecole Polytechnique is well positioned to play a leading role in the development of the ecosystem. Ecole Polytechnique offers thus an attractive environment for developing an original research program. In addition, the setup of IP Paris in 2019 reinforces the opportunities of collaborations with close partners of Ecole Polytechnique also members of the Institute (Telecom, ENSTA, ENSAE).
