In order to meet the Romanian employees’ needs for professional development, following an intergovernmental agreement between France and Romania, the INDE MBA Program was founded since 1991.

The continuous, strong cooperation between the National Institute of Economic Development (INDE) of the Bucharest University of Economic Studies (ASE) and the International Institute of Management (IIM) of the National Conservatory of Arts and Crafts (CNAM) is a guaranty of a successful cooperation.

During its existence, INDE has been part of many international programmes (Tempus, Leonardo, Train for Trade, Francode) that led to best practices’ exchange with similar institutions from abroad.

Since 2014, the Bucharest Business School (BBS) was created and INDE was incorporated in this Business School.


Then, the name of the program changes from INDE MBA program in Romanian-French INDE Professional MBA program.
