Paris, April 25, 2013 – To celebrate the tenth anniversary of their partnership and the renewal of their contract, Paris-Dauphine University and the Renault Foundation announced today that the Renault Foundation is now offering scholarships to four French students on the Dauphine-Renault Foundation MBA. The deadline for applications is June 30, 2013. The program will begin on September 16, 2013 for this year’s intake of 22 students.


The Dauphine-Renault Foundation MBA is a full-time Equis accredited MBA program. The course lasts 14 months, or 400 hours, and covers four key areas: marketing and strategy, finance, production, management and organizations.

The Dauphine-Renault Foundation MBA is designed for young professionals with at least three years’ work experience who are looking forward to an international career. Offering a real-life multicultural environment, in 2012 the MBA trained professionals of eight nationalities from the five continents. The program has already contributed to the training of more than 220 managers and specialists who work at companies all over the world ,” says Denis Darpy , professor at Dauphine University in charge of the MBA program.

The course is delivered on the Paris-Dauphine campus by lecturers from the university. The Renault Foundation pays the tuition fees (€20,000) and a monthly living allowance of €1,050, to enable young professionals to take a year off work to do the MBA. Throughout the academic year, the students are supported and coached by members of the foundation (integration seminar, study trips, talks, informal meetings, etc.).

Sophie Chazelle , Deputy Managing Director of the Renault Foundation, adds, “ The advantage of this MBA is that it gets students from different cultural and academic backgrounds working together. This multicultural approach is unique and a direct reflection of the Renault Group’s DNA. The Renault Foundation, whose actions support the education aims of the Renault Group’s CSR policy, funds and co-develops the academic program with its partner, Paris Dauphine University. Like all of the Renault Foundation’s other actions, the MBA program helps build lasting ties between business and academic institutions .”

The Dauphine-Renault Foundation MBA is designed to train future managers or leaders of multi-sector and international projects, in a spirit of excellence and multicultural respect, through four original components:

  • A standard-setting program delivered by a leading Parisian university in French to students of different nationalities, representing the “global” appeal of French higher education.
  • A strong inter-cultural ethical focus, helping students as a group and individually to understand management issues in a real-life multicultural situation.
  • A three- or four-week international professional project for small groups of students in one of the Renault Group’s target countries.
  • A six-month internship in a company, which may be Renault, working on projects with a strong international component.
