First steps in Aix

The AMGSM-IAE International Office is your panoramic viewpoint of the School. An orientation day is organised in late August especially for Internationals. A series of information sessions are organized every year in August and September to help you get started with all administrative obligations: Ofii, carte de séjour, enrolment, bank accounts, house hunting, insurances, telephone etc.


The School collaborates closely with the student association “BDE” to make sure all internationals feel welcome and become completely integrated in Student Life. Every year in the Fall we organise the International Festival together, and this is the most exciting student event of the year on the campus in Puyricard.

Professionnal experience

In-company experiences are an integral part of all degree programmes. Whether you would like sign an apprenticeship contract, or do an internship specific rules and regulations apply to internationals. The International Office will help you in this matter.

Graduation Ceremony

Every year the School holds a Graduation Ceremony. This is special day to receive the degree itself, and for families to gather and celebrate the students’ successful completion of their degree programme. This day also has a serious note as the graduates will have the opportunity to make a commitment to being a Responsible and ethical Manager by signing the Management Serment. The Graduation Ceremony is always planned in May of the following academic year. Families and friends are welcome.

Alumni association, AMGSM-IAE for ever

The IAE Aix-Marseille’s Alumni Association is completely involved with all aspects of the School. From admissions to the School’s gouvernance the alumni are omnipresent. They represent a resourceful network of experts

  • for students when they search for internships, aprenticeship or jobs
  • and of course for graduates during their careers.
