Score SIM - IAE de Bretagne Occidentale - Brest

Take the SIM test (Score IAE-Message)


TTo apply to the IAE school of management in Brest for a Master's study programme, you need to pass an entrance exam called the Score IAE Message (SIM).  

For those applying for their 3rd year of bachelor-level studies in September 2023, the SIM entrance exam is no longer needed.


The assessment is held several times per year and is organised by the IAE France Network.

It measures candidates’ abilities in four fundamental areas for future managers:

  • General, economic and managerial knowledge and culture.
  • Written comprehension and expression in French.
  • Logical and numerical reasoning.
  • Written comprehension and expression in English.


Students can take the SIM test in the IAE of their choice.


But not everything rests on this one test! Academic grades and motivation are also assessed by course directors and taken into account during the candidate selection process. There may be different recruitment procedures depending on candidate experience and learning pathway, status and plans.
