TBS Education’s Master in Management has been ranked 67th in the prestigious QS Business Masters Rankings 2023 of the 147 best Business Schools worldwide.

TBS Education’s Master in Management program has moved up 5 places!

These 147 international business schools in 34 countries are ranked on 5 criteria: employability, academic reputation, quality/price ratio, alumni and diversity.

Our school is ranked 10th on diversity, a demonstration of TBS Education’s ability to shine brightly on this criterion, which reflects our objectives for this mission-led company. TBS Education supports a greater diversity of open and enlightened people and gives them access to enhanced employability. This is achieved by welcoming more scholarship holders thanks to the modularity of tuition fees, promoting interculturality, integrating people with disabilities, etc.

“I’m delighted that the Master in Management program has moved up five places in this international ranking. I am also particularly proud to be among the world’s top 10 on the diversity criterion. This reflects both the gender balance in our classrooms and the rich mix of nationalities among the professors and students who work together on our campuses in Toulouse, Barcelona, Paris and Casablanca.”

Anne Rivière, Director of the Master in Management Program and Masters of Science (MSc) at TBS Education


TBS Education became a mission-led company in 2021. For an organization, this means defining how it intends to contribute to socio-environmental issues in order to serve a positive society and economy. Four objectives have been defined: education, research, diversity and economic responsibility and sustainability.

Thanks to the societal impact of its research, TBS Education trains a diversity of open-minded and enlightened actors able to contribute via their organizations to a responsible and sustainable economy. This is now the raison d’être of TBS Education.


The QS ranking uses 5 indicators:

  • Employability: The Employer Reputation Index is a measure of employability based on the responses of 61,870 global employers over the past five years. Last Graduate Employment Rate represents the percentage of graduates with a job offer within three months of graduation.
  • Opinion Leadership: The Academic Reputation Index is an academic metric based on responses from more than 200,000 academics in 60 countries around the world. Also quantified is the impact of faculty research in specific academic areas referenced by SCOPUS Data as well as the percentage of PhDs in the faculty.
  • Value for Money: the 10-year return on investment is a measure of factors such as educational attainment, salary growth, and career progression.
  • Alumni Outcomes: the QS Alumni Outcomes Index that looks at schools and universities linked to thousands of alumni successes (CEOs, entrepreneurs, influencers).
  • Student and Faculty Diversity: the gender balance and international mix of students and faculty.

TBS Education continues its development with a new campus in Paris, at 13, rue Saint Lambert, in the 15th district.

This new 5,000 m² campus, housed in a former Parisian high school, will have bright classrooms, work rooms, a documentation center, an incubator/coworking space, and 2 amphitheaters, all organized around a tree-lined courtyard of nearly 1,000 m², which will allow students to relax in a quiet space, but also be able to organize festive and cultural events.

“TBS Education is in the process of boosting its attractiveness and our real estate projects are part of our new approach to educational well-being. We are committed to accommodating a greater number of students in premises that reflect our vision of the management school of the future, and that enhance student experience and well-being. We design and build our campuses in cities brimming with professional opportunities so that our students can achieve their full potential”.

Stéphanie LAVIGNE, Managing Director of TBS Education

The building will be completely renovated, with different phases of work aimed at meeting thermal and regulatory standards, and creating classrooms equipped with state-of-the-art tools. Student well-being will be at the heart of the renovations. This new campus will therefore be a space that’s genuinely conducive to student life.

This campus will offer all our French and international students the opportunity to be right in the heart of the French capital, a major economic centre for Europe and the world, close to the biggest French and international companies. It will also allow our students to join the powerful network of 10,000 TBS Education alumni and thus develop their employability.

Don’t push yourself down, just push the boundaries. Here is Prof. Soumyadeb Chowdhury’s (Prof. Soum, to his students) piece of advice to prospective students. Head of the TBS Education Center of Excellence on Sustainable Development and Corporate Social Responsibility, he is a multiple-time and student-favourite lecturer of TBS Education Summer School.

A former international student and expat himself – having studied in India, England, Scotland and, now working in France – Prof. Chowdhury believes students should open themselves to the world of possibilities and opportunities beyond their comfort zone […] The TBS Education Summer School provides students with all these opportunities to go beyond traditional classroom experiences and explore the world of possibilities.” The balance between academics, corporate experience as well as social and cultural visits is a key element in the program that allow students to upskill themselves on a personal and professional front.

Prof. Soum’s class, AI driven Sustainable Business Operation, covered how the interplay between AI and emerging technology trends, such as Blockchain or Metaverse, helps achieve Sustainability Development Goals from both business and society perspective. In each session, students greatly appreciated his class. How does Prof Soum’s course remain a fan-favourite? To quote him: Teaching is an art which requires creative act. Just like an artist, I as a teacher aim to select tools, methods, and interventions for creating facilitating conditions where students can learn and engage most effectively.” Two other important aspects of his teaching are taking into account students’ interest and needs in deciding some sessions content and, practice research informed teaching – “drawing from latest research and industry practitioners’ findings to provide students with a comprehensive and holistic understanding bridging the gap between theory and practice.”

Thank you to those students who dared to “Learn, Unlearn and Relearn” through this unique opportunity that is the TBS Education Summer School, where engaging in conversations and discussion with students [and professors] from different countries, cultural background, perspective and generation are just some of the highlights this program has to offer.

TBS Education Summer School is not all about academics! Getting up close and personal with companies and business professionals in various industries are an essential element to the TBS Education Summer School experience. This year, participants of the Summer School got the chance to visit the world’s largest airliner manufacturer, Airbus, and check out the final assembly line while learning about this iconic French company that has dominated the skies for decades.

Next on the list was a comprehensive visit of IoT Valley. Here, students learned about the flourishing ecosystem created for and by seasoned entrepreneurs and budding start-ups. Students got the chance to meet start-uppers and get first-hand account of their experience and learn about what it takes to turn promising ideas into profitable realities.
First up was Stéphane LOISEAU, TBS Education alumni & founder of Owley, a company providing turnkey solutions for clients to recover people (search and rescue missions) or track lost and stolen assets in any situation.
The second startupper students met with was Guillaume DUVEAU, CTO of Doorinsider, an online marketplace helping real estate agencies to implement 3D solutions and integrate the latest technologies to enhance customers’ experience.

In addition to company visits, students also had the opportunity to learn about other industries, through Expert Talks. Here, experts in various fields came to TBS Education to share and impart their industry knowledge and personal stories of how they were able to make it in their fields. Entrepreneurs, such as Jehan DE WOILLEMONT, eighth generation wine maker from Chateau de Marmorières, not only shared his know-how of the wine industry, but also provided tastings for students of some of his most prized bottles.
Additionally, our students were also treated to a visit to the Ernest Wallon Stadium of the iconic Stade Toulousain rugby team here in Toulouse. After the visit, students took part in an Expert Talk with Frédérique DELAGE, senior strategy and digital expert in the Sports and Entertainment industries who focused on international sports event management including the Olympic and Paralympic Games of Paris 2024.

TBS Education is grateful for its vast and inspiring network of companies that provide the opportunity for our students to experience real-world knowledge and insights into the business world; a cornerstone for our students’ professional and personal development.  

Our P20 delegates all specializing in Aviation, had a busy and fruitful week in both Paris and Brussels, working on the “dual use of aviation as both a civilian and a military asset”.

image1 1

One of the highlights of that week was a visit to the EU Commission in Brussels where insightful presentations were shared by EU Commission experts on the political executive of the European Union and on the European Civil Protection & Humanitarian Aid Operations.

Then, a visit to the EU Parliament in plenary session gave our P20 delegates the opportunity to hear live, the Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenković addressing Parliament.
This speech was followed by a round of interventions by EU political group leaders before MEPs discussed the European Union and its future prospects.

Quite an eventful journey and a fairly busy weekly schedule for our TBS GEMBA delegates!
