IÉSEG School of Management offers more than 200 courses taught in English. Students can choose courses in our 5-year Grande Ecole Program. We offer a 3-year Bachelor Cycle (Business Administration) covering the fundamentals of management, in which courses are taught in French (some courses in Year 1 and 2) and English. However, the Bachelor Cycle can be fully studied in English. In our 2-year Master Cycle (Master of Science in Management) in which the students deepen their management knowledge and choose a specialisation, courses are taught entirely in English. While every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the information available at the time this catalog is prepared, the institution reserves the right to make changes at any time without prior notice.

In the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), the normal workload for a full-time student is 30 credits per semester. The number of contact hours varies depending on the format and level of a course. Thus, students usually have to attend from 8 to  12 courses per semester to get 30 ECTS. We recommend that exchange students take a minimum of 20 credits per semester.

Bachelor students have access to Bachelor courses (our bachelor cycle is 3 years). Students who will be in their 4th year of Bachelor cycle will have access to masters-level electives, namely, Extensive (one-semester long), and Intensive (one-week long). Master students will have access to master courses. Students should pay attention to prerequisites.
