Accounting, Finance, Economics

The academic Accounting, finance, & economics department (CFE) at the KEDGE Business School brings together professors from fields such as general accounting, financial and extra-financial accounting, auditing & accounting expertise, management control, market finance, corporate finance, social and solidarity economics, the circular economy, the collaborative economy, the real estate, urban, and territorial economy, business law, and corporate law.

Accounting, finance, & economics

These disciplines are all related to accounting, finance, and economics in a broad sense. The professors from the CFE department provide theoretical and practical training designed to provide students with specific knowledge of financial markets and institutions in the fields of accounting & auditing expertise and economics. Other themes discussed in our courses include economic policies, civil law, and corporate law (e-commerce, marketing, company, and entrepreneurship laws). 

Teaching commitment  

Our professors are involved in all programmes, both for initial training (the Grande école programme or GEP, KEDGE Bachelor, EBP, & IBBA) and continuous professional development.  
The department offers several professional orientations through its wide range of training options, including:  

The finance-oversight-auditing major: this is a pre-specialisation that covers the principle fields of finance (such as market finance, portfolio management, corporate finance, and an overview of international financial markets), management control, and auditing. It constitutes a solid base for then integrating a specialised master. 

It allows you to apply for internships with themes: credit analyst, financial analyst, risk manager, cash manager, internal auditing assistant, accounting duty, professional customer advisor, auditing, management control and wealth management. 
The department also offers several MS/MSc options on the three campuses: Marseille, Bordeaux, and Paris. 

On the Marseilles Campus 

MSc Auditing and performance management at KEDGE. It trains managers to master these two areas of expertise. The programme goes beyond management control training, offering students real professional prospects and preparing them for careers within any organisation regardless of the business sector. This master is led by Eustache Ebondo.

MSc Management control and reporting. It prepares students for a profession that has become critical. In fact, at a time when businesses need to take decisions increasingly rapidly and communicate in a systematic and transparent manner, the management controller occupies a strategic role. The syllabus is notable for the way it is orientated towards CSR, and also for the way it is taught, with 50% of lessons taught by professionals. This master is led by Éric Cauvin.

MSc Corporate Finance. It aims to train professionals to master financial tools and perfectly understand the needs of companies to be able to benefit from adequate financial expertise in all situations.  

The Audit-Expertise course: KEDGE prepares students for the exams for the DSCG Management Accounting degree, the second level of degree in the accounting sector. Accessible as continuing education, this technical and theoretical apprenticeship is completed by the professional postures and skills master needed for rapid and successful employability. The DSCG provides access to the final level of accounting expertise, the DEC diploma. The Audit-Expertise course is held at the Marseilles campus. It is led by Isabelle Pignatel.

On the Bordeaux Campus 

MSc Banking and Finance. It was designed to meet dual objectives: guaranteeing the technical requirements of finance and the needed perspective of societal responsibility. Financial institutions are increasingly aware of this; for students, it is practically a prerequisite. This is a major preoccupation for the team of professor-researchers who assist the MSc students. This master is led by Pierre Gruson.

MSc International Business. It aims to develop critical skills in our students to evolve within a globalised economy. It covers all management disciplines with a systematic approach to major international and geopolitical issues. The programme’s priority is to create strong ties to companies to strengthen employability abroad. This master is led by Stéphane Ouvrard.

On the Paris Campus 

MSc Sustainable finance. It trains professionals with perfect mastery of financial tools, providing them with a dual financial & extra-financial expertise. This profile is increasingly sought after by companies that are integrating new ethical and societal challenges in their investments and strategies. This master is led by Christophe Revelli.

L’IMPI – KEDGE’s specialised master in real estate and wealth management is the only French training programme to offer a dual specialisation in wealth management and commercial real estate. This master programme creates highly employable graduates since 90% of them obtain a job within three months of completing the programme. This master is led by Éric Pichet.
