SMS becomes part of Grupo Planeta’s international higher education project
Founded in 1949 in Barcelona by José Manuel Lara Hernandez, Grupo Planeta is an international group in the field of culture, leader in the Spanish-speaking publishing market, and second in the French market through Editis, which is already present in higher education both for face-to-face and online learning, in France and abroad.
Grupo Planeta’s Higher Education division is the leader in private international education in Spain, with over 100,000 students of 90 nationalities, and has been offering a large range of specialized courses at all levels for the last 15 years. This division includes the EAE Business School in Barcelona and Madrid, which is ranked among the top 30 business schools worldwide, according to América Economía. It also includes OBS Business School, which is 100% online and is the market leader in Spanish, UNIBA (International University Center of Barcelona), VIU (International University of Valencia), Ostelea School of Hospitality & Tourism, and ESDesign (School of Design in Barcelona).
In France, since September 2016, Grupo Planeta has committed to the development of ESLSCA Business School Paris, of EGE (Economic Warfare School) and of IFAM (French-American Institute of Management).
New stage: SMS becomes part of Grupo Planeta’s international higher education project, Group which, far from being an investment fund, is a major player in the development of education, and is truly committed to firmly establishing itself in France in this field. This new milestone will allow SMS to continue to evolve, innovate and grow internationally within this strong group dedicated to spreading its mission in education in a long-lasting way.
