Position overview
You will join Audencia’s Institute of Finance at our Nantes Campus. The institute was inaugurated in 2016 as part of the #Audencia2020 plan, as one of three priority areas together with Innovation and CSR.

The school is very dynamic and is planning to increase its faculty by more than a third from 2015 to 2020.
