About the Program
Hone your business skills in an international setting. Choose courses in a range of business disciplines, all taught in English, and enroll in a French language course at your level. If you're already a fluent French speaker, you may choose another language course, such as Spanish, German, or Chinese. You’ll attend class alongside students from a wide range of nationalities and academic backgrounds, providing both valuable business education and a unique cross-cultural experience. Students who successfully complete the program will earn a Certificate (semester) or Diploma (academic year) in Business Studies.
