A bit of history

The IAE of Poitiers was founded in 1956 as a faculty institute. It subsequently offered a complementary training to legal studies: the Certificate of Aptitude for Business Administration (CAAE).

In 1985, the team of “managers” of the Faculty of Economics joined that of IAE within the Institut de Gestion de Poitiers – Institut d’Administration des Entreprises (IGP – IAE) then became an autonomous component of the University of Poitiers.

Since then, the IAE of Poitiers is constantly developing new ways of access to its training, whether internationally or through distance learning.
