The Foundation

Our reason for being

Sheltered by the Fondation de France, the EM Normandie Foundation, created in December 2016 on the initiative of several alumni, has the mission of backing the School’s long-term development and extending its influence, by providing new sources of funding through general interest actions for the benefit of the School, its teaching and its students.


« As the new president, we aim to support a growing school with alumni, students, their parents and all the partners of the school. We are targeting assistance to scholarship holders, the promotion of entrepreneurial innovation with impact and academic research, for example, in the fields of maritime, associated logistics, managerial innovation, and new modes of agriculture  »

« After a start-up phase in 2016 of the EM NORMANDIE Foundation hosted by the Fondation de France. Belonging to the major donors, who participated in the first collections with Alumni and friends of the school, I hope that my Presidency will allow me to support the strategic projects of EM Normandie and its national and international influence. Thanks to school, I was lucky enough to be able to follow my path. I hope that together we can contribute so that our future “alumnae” and alumni can follow theirs! »
