The foundation develops its activities, directly or in collaboration with other bodies, along three main lines of action: Training, Research and Cooperation.


The Foundation promotes the training of teachers and researchers in business management through a program of mobility scholarships for students for doctorate programs in Management. It also offers study grants to cover enrollment in full-time Master’s programs, with the aim of attracting and developing the skill of talented young people.


The Foundation finances the research activities of the Chairs and other Research Centers studying various aspects of company management, social responsibility and business ethics.


The Foundation is committed to supporting training projects in the business management field on the continent of Africa, aware of the great multiplier effect that this action can have. In this context, it supports the MDE Business School in Cote d’Ivoire, the Lagos Business School in Nigeria, and Strathmore University in Kenya.
