International mobility on the campus of your school in a multicultural setting

Sometimes already multi-campus in France, these business schools choose to extend beyond our borders, which simplifies the procedures for mobility during your studies.. You will be able to expatriate while keeping your bearings and most often finding a familiar pedagogy and a program consistent with that followed in France… and at better controlled rates than for a simple exchange.

Some establishments place their international campuses at the heart of pedagogy : ESCP bachelors and, since 2021, Skema offer students a course where each of the three years takes place in a different country.

Most often, these international campuses do not only welcome French people, but many students from the host country, and other internationals. You will therefore be immersed in a multicultural environment.
