Program Highlights

Access cutting-edge pedagogy and learning facilities:

During the taught part of the program, students are assigned 15 to 20 hours of interactive face-to-face teaching per week and are expected to work 30 hours outside the classroom. This includes pre-reading and preparation for class, homework and preparation for assessments. A large part of the face-to-face time is dedicated to putting into practice the financial concepts and theories: exercises, case studies and simulations will be used to develop the employability of students. The program includes an Investment Banking simulation developped by experienced bankers. You will play the role of Investment Banking analyst to prepare you for job interviews.

Study in a highly international environment and practice multicultural skills:

Study entirely in English, in a group of up to 20 different nationalities, while being taught by multicultural faculty members.

Develop your language skills

Non-French speakers will study French (beginner to advanced level), a recommended option for students looking to work in France following their studies. French speakers may choose from a number of other languages at the beginner level.
