The Foundation

Backed by our development, at NEOMA we want to increase that drive by helping to face the major challenges of the future. We are now at a pivotal moment in history: society has never undergone so many ecological, technological and geopolitical upheavals. At the same time, young people have profoundly changed. They have faced and must continue to face an age of wide-reaching uncertainty, and are often torn between both the wish for change and for pleasure here and now.

Supporting the new generations in this ever-changing world. 

It is against this unprecedented background that the School is launching its new 2023-2027 strategic plan. Entitled “Engage for the future”, its aim is to continue the transformation of NEOMA to help young people respond to the major challenges of the future and sustainably establish themselves as leaders. 

Together, let's continue to help our School make progress 

To back this new strategic plan and support the School in achieving its aims, the NEOMA Foundation is launching a fundraising campaign based on five key areas of strategic focus: equal opportunity, the student experience, the new Reims campus, academic excellence and research, and entrepreneurship.
By supporting NEOMA's development projects through its Foundation, you can make a tangible contribution with us to building a better future.

En apportant votre soutien aux projets de développement de NEOMA par le biais de sa Fondation, vous avez le pouvoir d'agir avec nous pour construire un avenir meilleur.

“Since the launch of its previous strategic plan, NEOMA has undergone a high rate of growth and has attained all of the objectives set in 2017. We are proud of several major achievements, such as the progress in our research, the high growth in the number of candidates for our programs, the creation of the first virtual campus in Europe, and the opening of our new campus in Paris. Our attractiveness has increased significantly, and that incites us to be equally ambitious in the new chapter in the development of our School, with the launch of our new 2023-27 strategic plan “Engage for the Future”. To serve our aims, we need the NEOMA community to help meet the hopes of our students and continue to drive our School forward. Thank you very much indeed for your ongoing support.” 

Delphine MANCEAU, NEOMA Managing Director 

“For 15 years, the purpose of the NEOMA Foundation has been to support the development projects of our School. Thanks to the generosity of our alumni and corporate sponsors, we have achieved a 40% increase in donations over the last 3 years. The figures are encouraging and incite us to be even more ambitious in terms of support for NEOMA’s drive forward: we aim to collect 13 million euros by the end of the 2023-27 strategic plan. We can only achieve that with your support, underlining your renewed confidence, so that our School can sustainably establish itself among the leaders” 

Jacky LINTIGNAT Graduate of the Grande École 75 Program President of the NEOMA Foundation 

For more than 15 years, the neoma foundation has backed the school's development.

It brings together our founders, corporate or individual donors, pro bono experts, experienced employees, all driven by the same intent to take action and make NEOMA Business School a strong, exemplary and innovative School.

Today we are proud of this network of several hundred stakeholders who have joined forces with us and have enabled us in recent years to develop a solid program of gender diversity and equal opportunity, found the first business incubators within the School and carry out research projects which have made the School well-known on the national and international scene.

We are convinced that by combining our talents that we can go even further.
