Inventing the Future for 110 Years
The Burgundy School of Business (BSB), a member of the exclusive club of century-old management schools, is celebrating its 110th anniversary in 2010. More than a century of existence during which the school, today a major actor in entrepreneurial management, has always adapted to changes in the world by relying on strong and stable values such as Openness, Responsibility and Creativity. Thanks to unrelenting innovation BSB has become a reference for management in the wine industry or in experimental economics. This innovation is also reflected in the global strategic alliance with Oxford Brookes University, which is a first in French Business Schools.
Expertise in management in the wine business and in experimental economics
The school has had close ties with the wine trade since its earliest days and today is a reference in wine management. The Mastère Spécialisé Commerce International des Vins et Spiritueux (Specialised Master in International Wine and Spirits Trade), which was created in 1989, and the Wine Management Institute, created in 2009 are the spearhead. Today, the Wine Management Institute benefits from the unique support of the LESSAC (Laboratory for Experimentation in Social Sciences and Behaviour Analysis) – the largest laboratory for Experimental Economics in Europe, launched in 2008. Thanks to its transversal approach and innovative style, the LESSAC has allowed the Burgundy School of Business to be at the forefront of pedagogical innovation and research.
The creation of an innovative model for European Business Schools
Since 2008, Burgundy School of Business has been working towards the school of tomorrow by developing a unique model of global alliance with Oxford Brookes University. This major milestone in the history of the school will lead to the creation of a veritable Franco-British Business School, based in two sites (Oxford and Dijon) with shared programmes, faculty, students, relationships with businesses and the same organisational culture. With a total of 4,500 students and 150 international professors, this alliance is a new model for Europe.
Dijon is in eastern France, and is the capital of the Côte-d'Or département and of the Burgundy region.
The earliest archaeological finds within the city limits of Dijon date to the Neolithic period. Dijon later became a Roman settlement called Divio, located on the road from Lyon to Paris. The province was home to the Dukes of Burgundy from the early 11th until the late 15th centuries and Dijon was a place of tremendous wealth and power and one of the great European centres of art, learning and science.
Dijon's churches include Dijon Cathedral. The city has retained varied architectural styles from many of the main periods of the past millennium, including Capetian, Gothic and Renaissance. Many still-inhabited town houses in the city's central district date from the 18th century and earlier. Dijon architecture is distinguished by, among other things, toits bourguignons (Burgundian polychrome roofs) made of tiles glazed in terracotta, green, yellow and black and arranged in geometric patterns.
Dijon holds an International and Gastronomic Fair every year in autumn. With over 500 exhibitors and 200,000 visitors every year, it is one of the ten most important fairs in France. Dijon is also home, every three years, to the international flower show Florissimo.
Dijon is famous for Dijon mustard which originated in 1856, when Jean Naigeon of Dijon substituted verjuice, the acidic "green" juice of not-quite-ripe grapes, for vinegar in the traditional mustard recipe.
