In the same spirit, Paul Lauriac, Director of Partnership Development and Business Services, confirmed this enthusiasm and announced that TBS Business School is now the firts Management School in France to become a member of the Babson Collaborative for Entreperneurship (founded and sponsored by Babson College).
