Students also work through real life case studies with discussion sessions and project presentations. 

Through exchange partnerships, ESCE aims to continue increasing the diversity of its student population in order to provide a multicultural environment that creates a unique learning experience for all its students and integrates them into the world of International Business and Management.

If you want to rent a flat in France, you will need a guarantor (someone paying tax in France or your parents giving proof of their salary to secure payment of your rent). If you don’t have guarantor, you will be required to pay all your rent in advance.
