    IÉSEG holds the "triple crown" of international accreditations (AACSB, AMBA & EQUIS) and is a member of the "Conférence des Grandes Écoles". The School offers Bachelor, Master and Post-Graduate Degrees as well as Executive Education programs. IÉSEG is also one of the leading French business schools in terms of research. The IÉSEG Research Center is accredited by the French CNRS (National Center for Scientific Research). Our Lille Campus is in the heart of Northern France (within the triangle made up by London, Paris and Brussels), and our Paris Campus is located in the biggest European business district of "La Défense". More information on the school can be found here:



    The department of "Management & Society" consists of over close to 30 full-time academic staff in the areas of Corporate Sustainability, Business and Society, Organization Studies and Strategic Management. The department explicitly welcomes cross-disciplinary research efforts needed to address the challenges currently faced by both for-profit and non-profit organizations, their stakeholders and the communities in which they operate.

    The Management & Society Department, together with the IESEG Centre for Organizational Responsibility (ICOR), operate in line with the vision of the School to be "a unique international hub empowering changemakers for a better society". The department and ICOR together aim to be a source of inspiration in the development of responsible and sustainable business practices, and a source of diffusion of creative knowledge and solutions. Current faculty members from the Management & Society Department have been successful in publishing articles in top-tier refereed journals including the Academy of Management Review, Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Annals, Organization Science, Organization Studies, Journal of Management Studies, Strategic Management Journal, Business Ethics Quarterly, and Business & Society. An overview of our collegial group of professors can be found here: Management & Society Department



    Teaching will be a strong focus for this position. Courses that this position will be asked to cover at the undergraduate, graduate and/or postgraduate level will depend on the candidate's experience and qualifications but should overlap with at least some of the following topics: International Management, International Business Strategy, and Advanced Corporate Strategy. For an appointment at the Associate level, applicants are required to have extensive higher education teaching experience. In addition, the selected candidate will contribute to the development of the Department's programs. As such, we are looking for candidates with strong teaching skills, and who are fluent in English, as most courses are taught in this language. Although not required, active working knowledge of French is considered an asset. For this position, the ability and willingness to interact with managers and the local (and international) ecosystems are indeed valued.

    With regards to research, the selected candidate will contribute to the vibrant research community at IESEG through her/his own work. The ideal candidate for this Strategy and International Business position is therefore expected to hold a PhD, have a publication record (or a promising pipeline for an Assistant Professor position) in relevant peer-reviewed journals in the Management, Strategy and/or International Business research field(s), as well as a good international network. Connections of the candidate's research orientation with research expertise of (some) professors in the department will be considered a strong asset. Again, an overview of our diverse group of professors can be found here: Management & Society Department.

    Finally, we are looking for candidates who embody our core values of Accomplishment, Responsibility, Integrity, Solidarity, and Engagement, and fit our diverse and international culture in which over 50 nationalities are represented. IÉSEG places tremendous value on diversity and inclusion, and we therefore encourage applications from all backgrounds. Underrepresented groups in academia (notably women, minority ethnic groups, people identifying as LGBTQIA+, people with a (non-)visible disability, and people from lower socio-economic backgrounds and/or economically developing countries) are particularly encouraged to apply, as we are highly committed to ensuring that IÉSEG reflects and benefits from the diversity present in society.



    At IÉSEG, we are committed to providing a supportive and engaging work environment. To new faculty members (and their partner), we offer a wide range of resources to help them integrate into the country, culture and school, such as individualized French language courses (for faculty members and their partner), a relocation allowance, and housing search assistance. Moreover, all faculty members have access to a competitive salary, as well as benefits such as French social security, a complementary health insurance, meal vouchers, a profit-sharing plan, and a contributory pension scheme. Finally, the school actively promotes research, provides resources for active scholars (e.g., funding for conferences and data collection) and offers competitive financial bonuses for high quality international peer-reviewed research publications.
