Opening a bank account

While it is not compulsory, we think that opening a French bank account upon arrival will be more convenient for you. Indeed, some rental contracts will require you to pay through direct debit transfer from a French bank account.

Société Générale

Burgundy Shool of Business has developed specific partnerships with a French bank : Société Générale. During the orientation week, English speaking representatives from this institution will be on our premises in order to help you open a bank account. Furthermore, as a student from Burgundy School of Business, the bank will offer you the possibility to register for housing insurance when opening your bank account. We remind you, housing insurance is compulsory (it may already be included in the rent).

Should you wish more information prior arrival, we advise you to have a look at the following website:
