Credit Transfer

Most international colleges and universities accept credits from the IÉSEG School of Management. However, each institution has its own policy regarding credit acceptance from other institutions. We strongly recommend that students consult their academic advisor and/or professor to receive credit transfer approval before applying to the IÉSEG Short-Term Programs.

If they would like to transfer credits to their home university, they should print out all documents and contact the professor or study abroad advisor and ask for credit and grade approval.
