Medical services

Wellness is above all a philosophy of living. The concept means 'a personal feeling of well-being', and is therefore a global state of health. It covers the important things in life, but also daily trivialities that often make life exciting, and prevent it from becoming gloomy... Wellness is the importance of feeling comfortable in your skin and the idea that happiness is different for everyone.

Campus life

The new Bordeaux campus has been designed to be a living space. Spread over 35,000 m2, it has dedicated work and chat rooms, and sports and relaxation areas.

Student clubs

The Confederation acts as a link between the administration and the associations, but is also there to support members of the associations with legal, economic and organisational problems. The Confederation also deals with professionals, an accountant and a lawyer, who work with KEDGE’s associations, and meet each association at least once a year.

This dual expertise in education and research has earned it its status among the 1% of the world's business schools that are triple accredited by EQUIS, AMBA and AACSB.
