Institut Mines-Télécom Business School (formerly known as INT Management from its foundation in 1979 to its rebranding in 2009[1] then Telecom Business School from 2009 to 2018) is a French state-funded Management School, a member of Institut Mines-Telecom, the biggest group of engineering and management graduate schools in France. It is also a member of the Management School Chapter of the Conférence des Grandes Ecoles,[2] of EFMD (European Foundation for Management Development), AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) and accredited by the Association of MBAs for its Masters in Management Program.
