The Arts Society (BDA) at NEOMA Business School (NEOMA BS)

The Art Society at NEOMA BS, like all other cultural associations at NEOMA BS, endeavours to fuel artistic life on Reims’ campuses.

The BDA offers a range of cultural and artistic activities, such as a concert during Freshers’ Week (Weekend d’intégration), a WeArt festival, lessons offered by students or professionals to share their passion for art.

Musical Theatre at NEOMA BS (Comédie Musicale de NEOMA BS, CoMu), a flagship project by NEOMA, is a key event that brings together a range of arts: dance, singing, choir, fine arts and also fashion. This project is a joint effort by more than 80 artists at NEOMA who take part in a large-scale performance that helps to promote art on the Reims campus.

The BDA also allows students to participate in events such as the Derby Artistique and Trophée des Arts competitions, the latter of which brings together a range of business schools around one passion. Thanks to its vast choice of societies and clubs, the BDA is attractive to all NEOMA students and allows both keen enthusiasts and beginners to thrive in NEOMA’s society life.

Above all, the BDA ensures cohesion between students. It allows everyone to share their art with a large circle. The BDA aims to create an environment that is artistically stimulating and fulfilling, encouraging creativity and freedom of expression.

The Arts Society (BDA) at Sciences Po

The Arts Society at Sciences Po organises cultural, festive, artistic and sometimes humanitarian events. It creates and maintains links with other societies at the university, as well as other student Arts Societies in the region, and promotes cooperation with cultural institutes in the city.

The Student Services Office (BDE) at ESAD:

The goal of this office is to promote society life, exhibitions and student journeys at the Reims School of Art and Design (École Supérieure d’Art et de Design, ESAD), to manage the activities and events that it offers, to promote the school to students, the world of employment and to generally contribute to the school’s reputation.
