IAE Aix-Marseille develops solid and long-lasting relationships with its partner companies through joint involvement in projects essential to companies, students, our institute, and society.

Our development projects are structured around five axes conducive to actions to supporting companies:

  • Entrepreneurship

    The creation of companies and developing their activities—which is now called entrepreneurship—is part of IAE Aix-Marseille’s DNA.

    Our entrepreneurship activities rely on an important socioeconomic and cultural ecosystem. Why not join us?

  • Humanistic Leadership

  • Professionalization of our training courses

    All our training programs can incorporate companies’ input via:

    • a manager’s statement to illustrate a course
    • workshops to share a real managerial problem facing the company. Student teams prepare a recommendation to present to the company
    • the teaching of all
  • Impact research

  • Support for the student's professional project

    You can join us at our Career Days or at our professional conferences.

    Career Days: training by recruitment professionals

    Career Day MSc 1 - Conducting job searches and applying for internships (September 8, 2021)

    Organized for first-year students, the day is focused on how to search for internships, apprenticeships, and jobs. The program covers job search techniques and tools, CV and cover letter preparation, and recruitment interview techniques. Students are coached directly by 15 recruitment professionals (including executives from Airbus, Credit Agricole, Orange, etc.) in small-group workshops. The objective is twofold: to enable each student to have a CV and cover letter ready when they find a job they are interested in and to succeed in their recruitment interview.

    Career Day MSc 2 - Getting to know the regional economic fabric with an international dimension (September 21, 2021)

    After developing their search and preparation techniques on the first day, students participate in a second day to learn about opportunities available at companies in the region. The day takes the form of a series of one-hour conferences with presentations by professionals who explain their company’s culture, various professions, and the possibilities it offers for career development. Examples of career paths are developed. The objective is to facilitate exchanges between students, HR managers, and/or alumni working for various companies in the region, from fast-growing SMEs (Virtual Expo, Ponant, Mychezmoi, and Avis Vérifiés) to large groups (CMA CGM and Airbus).
