Program Description

businessThe International Business Program is an exchange programme for students enrolled at an ESDES partner institutions in their home country, wishing to study abroad for a period of one or two semesters.

Courses are available at both Bachelor's and Master's level, in French or English and for one or two semesters. Classes are offered in the area of Finance, Marketing, Law, Human Resources and other business areas, in addition to courses that are relevant to the local culture such as French, the European Union, France in the 21st century and Art & Architecture.

Students that are enrolled at an ESDES partner university can attend the International Business Program free of charge. Students not enrolled at a partner university may still attend the course but on fee paying basis.

Each class taught on the International Business Program adheres to the ECTS standard and therefore fully transferable towards a students overall study programme in their home country.

Degree & diploma

No diploma is awarded at the end of the study period, although students can receive transfer credits at their home institutions for coursework completed at ESDES.
