Extracurricular activities

In this BBA, we look at our students as a complete young future leader and as such what is going on outside of the classrooms is also important.

As such, your three years of studies are built around cultural experiences. Your curiosity and your creativity are what will make you noticeable and different.

The First Year is dedicated to our French and Parisian surrounding. With a multi-centuries history, France is worldwide reputed for its lifestyle and its business leaders. The school will take you to major places.

The Second Year is dedicated to Europe as a leading business spot. Doing Business in Europe can be tricky although the assets of our old Continent are enormous. Visiting one of the major places in Europe (whether Berlin for its creative business and arts life, Brussels for being the center of politics in Europe, Milan for its luxurious and endogeneous art crafting, etc) is an important step in this BBA.

The Third Year will finalize this openness to the vast world of business through a semester abroad or the choice of electives to deepen your knowledge in more applied sectors such as Finance or Marketing.

We also expect from our Bachelor students to take part to pro bono activities, students life of the school, conferences organizations and to events dedicated to the visibility of the school in general (open school days, students fairs, etc). These community activities grant additional ECTS to our students.
