IAE Toulouse


A word from the President of the board

elisabeth ourliac présidente du CA de l'IAE Toulouse« IAE Toulouse School of Management provides a theoretical and practical post-secondary and professional education of the highest academic standards with an international outlook.

Founded in 1955, the IAE has established a privileged position within Toulouse 1 Capitole university and today enjoys an excellent reputation.

I am convinced now more than ever that links between business and higher education are essential and the relationships that the IAE Toulouse has established with the business world over a long period are particularly rich.

It is with this in mind that I have served on the IAE’s Board of Directors for many years. My professional experience in a large company and in a multicultural context allow me to bring an even more international perspective to the IAE and I am happy to accept the presidency today».
