Earlier in the year, a delegation of Rennes School of Business, composed of Thomas Froehlicher, Director
General of the university, and Pauline Cojean, International Development Manager for Pakistan, visited
Lahore and Islamabad. This visit is the follow-up of their first visit in November, during the Choose France
Education Fair, organized for the very first time in Pakistan by the French Embassy in Pakistan and
Campus France. “Bringing to Pakistan a delegation of top French universities in various academic fields
for the very first time during the Choose France Education Fair was a challenge, but the fact that the
Director General of one of our best Business Schools in France is coming back 6 months later is a very
good sign that the objective to have long term cooperation between France and Pakistan is heading in
the right direction”, said Sabine Vermillard, Higher Education and Scientific attaché at the French
Embassy in Pakistan.
Mr Froehlicher and Mrs Cojean visited several universities they already went to in November, to carry
on the cooperation. Several agreements for mobility and research cooperation were signed during their
visit or since, with NUST, LUMS, Kinnaird College for Women, Superior University. Another concrete
project is already emerging with the organization of a summer program with Kinnaird College for
Women, in which Pakistani students and professors will go to Rennes campus in June, both to study and
discover Breton and French culture.
According to DG Thomas Froehlicher, “Rennes School of Business is a unique multicultural business school
that welcomes and educates over 90 nationalities daily in English since its foundation in 1990. Its
permanent and international faculty is fortunate to have 5 professors with degrees from the best
institutions in Pakistan. Pakistan is a great country where we wish to offer a certain image of France for
motivated students and to engage in research activities in our favorite subjects such as agri-finance or
green and data-driven supply chain management”.
Mr Froehlicher and Mrs Cojean already plan to come back to Pakistan in October 2023 for the second
edition of the Choose France Education Fair, which will take place in Lahore and Karachi.
Rennes School of Business is part of the 2023 embassy scholarship program. Two of their degrees are
available for scholarships: MSc in Sustainable Management and Eco-Innovation and International MBA.
Selection results will be announced at the end of April. Visit Campus France Pakistan website to know
