The Foundation

Our reason for being

The EM Normandie Foundation was created at the end of 2016 on the initiative of a few graduates, under the aegis of the Fondation de France. Its mission is to support the long- term development of the School and to extend its influence by providing new sources of funding through actions of general interest for the benefit of the School, its education and its students.
« Today, the competition from business schools is global, it is more than essential to show that we are united and to get involved for our school: we, its alumni, its students, its teachers and staff, its partners and friends. Our strength is our number and there is no small donation…
Together we will be able to address the challenges that our school faces every day to ensure the sustainability of our diplomas, to build our future and the future of the coming generations. » »
Jean Louis Gregoire, President of the EM Normandie Foundation
