- What exactly does ‘Business Development’ mean?
Paris and the Île-de-France region
An educational project playing an integral part in an international, innovative, creative environment
Paris enjoys a unique concentration of researchers, major businesses and cutting-edge sectors of industry within Europe, with a third of France’s GDP produced in the Ile-de-France region. Faced with stiff international competition, the growth and development of innovation in the capital and its surrounding region is directly linked to and sustained by its dynamic forces: its human and creative resources. It is within this framework that Novancia has developed its educational project.
