We rely on a strong international experience: more than 70 partner universities for student mobility, and 25 to 30 visiting professors each year.


Students are selected according to their Proficiency in English (minimum B2 proficiency level, according to the Common European Framework of Reference), and according to their proficiency in Economics, General Management and Quantitative skills. Indeed, students should have successfully passed at least 80 ECTS credits (or equivalents) in those fields. The grades from the last three years as well as the grades of specific courses will be considered.
