Set in July, this four-week intensive programme on our Paris Campus is designed to deepen the understanding of Business and Management within a broader global context. It gives students the unique opportunity to build critical business skills and study firsthand the Global Business and Management approach.


The interdisciplinary approach that unites all IÉSEG courses as well as the connection of different forms of learning, such as class discussions and excursions to various sites of interest, enrich the academic curriculum of each course. The IÉSEG International Summer Academy seeks to bring together students from all over the world.

Students can earn up to 12 ECTS credits transferable to their home university. IÉSEG offers various business and management course options taught in English, which give students the unique opportunity to study in Paris regardless of their knowledge of the French language. Moreover, for students who are also interested in learning more about the French language and culture, we have complemented our curriculum with French language courses at four levels of proficiency.

The distinguished Summer Academy faculty, consisting of fully qualified professors, delivers courses that focus on topics in their respective areas of research. In order to assure maximum interaction between students and faculty, participation is limited to 30 to 40 students per class.


By taking part in this unique opportunity to study abroad, students will make new friends, share views with others, and may discover new academic interests. The international profile of IÉSEG gives them the opportunity to get to know students from different countries and cultural backgrounds while discovering the multicultural character of contemporary France.

By attending the IÉSEG International Summer Academy, students will benefit from the intellectual, cultural, and recreational opportunities of Paris, a place of rich history and dynamics.
