Conférence des Grandes Ecoles (CGE)

Description: Created in 1973, the CGE brings together higher education and research institutions in France and abroad which train their graduates with a view towards excellence, in partnership with the business world, economic players and civil society. The CGE is a non-profit association of engineering schools, management schools and higher education institutions offering other specialties. All the Grandes Écoles are recognized by the State and offer a nationally-certified degree upon completion of five years of post-Baccalaureate study, at Master's level. Its members also include companies, alumni associations and organizations. The CGE accredits its members' educational programs (post-master Master's, MSc, BADGE) and uses its quality label as a guarantee that these programs meet the expectations of the labor market and to promote the development and influence of all forms of higher education and research institutions both in France and abroad with a view towards excellence, in partnership with the public authorities, economic players and civil society. Admission to the CGE is dependent on satisfying particularly stringent criteria relating to structure, recruitment methods, teaching methods and support provided to students in the institutions. The Conférence des Grandes Écoles has taken the decision, on ethical grounds, not to release information which would allow comparisons or classifications of its member schools. Its role is to: - Build up internal information, cooperation and solidarity between its members - Foster and coordinate discussions and work on teaching, education and research, in order to improve social well-being and sustainable development - Promote the schools nationally and internationally - Develop training courses and research - Represent its members and further common interests in national, community and international government and authorities
