BEM was founded by the Bordeaux Chamber of Commerce and Industry in 1874, and is one of the oldest “Grandes Ecoles” in France. The school is a member of the “Conférence des Grandes Ecoles”. Originally called the Ecole Supérieure de Commerce, the school became the Groupe ESC Bordeaux then Bordeaux Ecole de Management and now we prefer to be called simply BEM.
