Paris (France), October 21st, 2021,

Financière de Courcelles advised the shareholders of Ecole Multimédia, a pioneering school specialised in Web and Digital, founded in 1996 by Remy Galland, in its merger with Galileo Global Education.

Galileo Global Education has announced that it is strengthening and diversifying its training offer for digital professions by integrating Ecole Multimédia into its network. A pioneer in education and training for Web and digital professions, founded in 1996 by Remy Galland, the Ecole Multimédia is continuing its development in France and Africa, based on a hybrid and professionalizing student experience and teaching methods. Today, the school offers 15 specialised courses, in apprenticeship or in Executive Education, all leading to a diploma registered in the Répertoire National des Certifications Professionnelles (RNCP).

Supported by Entrepreneur Invest in its capital since 2015, Ecole Multimedia has invested heavily over the period to set up a hybrid training model, but also to propose its offer internationally.

“The Ecole Multimédia is one of the last independent schools in the web and digital trainings. By joining the Galileo network, it will be able to maintain its independence in the service of its students while benefiting from the support of the “platform” Galileo. It has perfectly anticipated the pedagogical transitions underway with its hybrid training model. Moreover, the quality of its training, its network of long-term partner companies and its portfolio of titles registered with the RNCP will create a great dynamic within Galileo,” says Vanessa Diriart, President of Galileo Global Education France.

Remy Galland, until now President and founder of Ecole Multimédia, will remain at the head of the school and will continue to steer its growth projects in France and abroad. “After 25 years of independence, we are happy and proud to enter our next phase of growth within the leading group in Europe,” says Remy Galland.

“We are delighted with the outcome of this entrepreneurial adventure, with the Ecole Multimédia joining one of the most demanding and prestigious private education groups in the world,” say Bertrand Folliet and Marouane Bahri of the Entrepreneur Invest team.

The Education team at Financière de Courcelles is delighted to have supported the shareholders of the Ecole Multimédia in this industrial backing operation.
