Developing an international group
With a network of 176 partner universities in 45 countries, CentraleSupélec is building a truly global group of interconnected schools, which will continue to expand. We are an international institution with a 30% student population from overseas, representing nearly 70 nationalities. 50% of our local students opt for a double-degree internationally.
In November 2015, the 5 schools of the Groupe École Centrale revamped their organisational framework, reflecting the schools' desire to strengthen their cooperation and develop their international policy.
The Groupe Ecole Centrale has also been making strides in the developing the project of the Ecole Centrale Afrique Australe in Mauritius. The group also signed, in October 2015, a memorandum of understanding with the University of São Paulo to study the advisability of opening a new school in Brazil.
"CentraleSupélec with the support of Groupe École Centrale was the first French engineering school to export its brand and its pedagogical excellence to the international market." Gilles Gleyze, Executive Vice President for Development, Enterprise and International Affairs
