1947 brings positive news on two fronts: ESC Le Havre joined the new network of Higher Education Schools of Trade and Business Administration (ESCAE) set up at the government’s initiative, and our programme was endorsed by the French Ministry of National Education. These two accolades were testament to the educational excellence of our training, and boosted our credibility in relation to other engineering schools and universities.
We were now in the post-Second World War period. We had complied with ESCAE requirements. Our course was now three years with a final examination and a qualification shared by the entire network: the diploma of higher business education (DECS). We narrowed down our objective to training future business leaders and senior executives. We finally gained “Grande École” status like the engineering schools, which gave us a boost.
