Dive into French luxury and lifestyle

Decision-making and managerial skills are affected by cultural differences, often in subtle ways. Based on the specificities of French culture, the participants will identify and manage cultural situations with kindness and tolerance, allowing them to understand the interactions between cultural differences and the workplace.

The participants will also discover the characteristics of the French style through the wine, jewelry, perfume, and luxury industry markets.

Discover sustainable business in Europe

Europe is full of business opportunities. The course will not only provide an insight of business practices within the European area but will also help students to think « out of the box” and imagine new management practices, especially those that foster the principles of responsible management.

The 4-week program consists of approximately 80 contact hours (20 hours per module), corresponding to 12 ECTS credits.

Vacationing in the South of France is very popular, and it can be very difficult to find an accommodation.

For this reason, our program includes, by default, an accommodation in a student’s hall of residence for the entire duration of the program.
