In the 2022 edition of the ranking published by Le Figaro, IPAG has moved up one place to become one of the top 5 post-bac business schools, a move which also makes it the 3rd school in the SESAME exam.

Published each year in the autumn, the Figaro ranking has become, over the years, a reference for establishing a hierarchy between the 38 French business schools, post-bac and post-prepa, awarding the Master's degree. In order to draw up its ranking, the newspaper took into account numerous indicators divided into three main categories: academic excellence, international influence and relations with companies.

Academic excellence
The work of IPAG's research laboratory, its more than 90 publications per year, the supervision offered to students and the quality of its teaching staff have largely contributed to the school's progress in the 2022 edition of the ranking.

International influence
The number of professors with degrees from abroad, the number of international students in the different classes of the Grande École Programme and the presence of IPAG in the Shanghai Ranking (Top 300 in the Economics category) have also contributed to the school's high ranking.

Relations with companies
Finally, the newspaper was able to note the good level of salaries at the end of their studies and their recruitment in listed companies (CAC 40, SBF 120), members of the Big Four, the LinkedIn top 25 or the Universum top 50. The presence of the graduate community on professional social networks also yielded valuable points.
