The University of Burgundy (uB) roots lie deep within the history of France. uB’s origins date back to the French monarchy, with the founding of the Dijon faculty of law in 1722, at the instigation of King Louis XV of France. After the French Revolution, between 1805 and 1809, Emperor Napoleon I of France founded the faculties of Science, Arts and Medicine, at the heart of Dijon.
