The governance model established at Ipag reflects its founding principles: independence, transparency, the representation of all those who take part in school life, and close links with companies.
The governance model at Ipag Business School illustrates the unique features that make it a Business School with a strong identity.
- Ipag Business School is a non-profit association under the French 1901 Act. It is independent of any financial interest and there is no shareholder remuneration.
- Ipag Business School Group is a private school offering a State-approved higher education Masters level diploma. It is independent from public authorities and any political interest.
- All those who take part in school life are involved in the definition of its main strategic focuses. Its Board of Directors comprises:
- AE Ipag, the former students association, as a school belongs as much to its students as to its former graduates;
- APE Ipag, the Parents’ Association. Indeed, most of the studies at Ipag BS are financed by parents. No other higher education school has parents as Board members.
- Ipag is responsive to the needs of business professionals:
- The Chairman of the Board of Directors is the industry leader François Delachaux. He is also Chairman of the Board of Delachaux SA, and Honorary President of Medef Île-de-France.
- The Skills Development Committee, the “Ipag Circle”, is also an ex officio Board member. It represents former Ipag students who are decision-makers in all business sectors. They are actors in economic life and in a position to express business expectations in terms of training.
