The admission procedure unfolds in two stages:

1. Decision on eligibility based on examination of the application file (application fee: 100€ non refundable)
2. Oral test for final admission: interview with a jury made up of professionals and members of the academic team.

At the end of the Program, students receive an IFM ENTREPRENEURS certificate subject to the success criteria of ongoing assessment and other evaluation sessions.


Tuition fees are set at 13,500 for the 2018/2019 academic year. This fee includes transport for student trips (accommodation costs and meals are to be met by the student).

IFM need-based scholarships can cover one part of tuition fees, depending on financial resources. These scholarships may be conferred thanks to the support of member companies of Cercle IFM.

The following students are not eligible to the IFM scholarship scheme:
