The Advanced Business School of Reims was created in 1928. It took the name Reims Management School at the beginning of the new millennium.
Creation of NEOMA Business School
NEOMA Business School was created at the beginning of the 2013 academic year, following the merger of Rouen Business School and Reims Management School carried out by the Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Rouen and Reims. This regrouping was part of a wave of similar operations in France (SKEMA Business School created in 2009, France Business School created in 2012 and KEDGE Business School created in 2013). Indeed, French business schools are now competing at international level and the number of students is increasing.
NEOMA Business School offers a range of teaching programmes from bachelor to doctoral degrees, across its three campuses. International students make up 25% of total student numbers.

Academic and economic links with China
NEOMA Business School, after being specifically selected by the Hanban, launched in 2014 the first Confucius Institute for Business of France, and the seventh in the world. Other Confucius Institutes for Business are notably present in the London School of Economics and the New York State University. NEOMA Business School, which welcomes each year 300 Chinese students, has 16 Chinese academic partners, among which Renmin University, the Beijing University of International Business and Economics, Nankai University and Wuhan University. NEOMA BS stated that the institute will act as a platform dedicated to the optimisation of economic relations between China and France by providing solutions and helping local companies develop their business activities in China. Laurent Fabius, a former French Foreign Minister, inaugurated the event. That same year, NEOMA Business School opened a Doctorate of Business Administration programme in Shanghai.
