Over 250 international students on campus in September


80% of our international students are studying in the Bachelor programme and the Masters in Management Grande Ecole Programme

One of the most visible differences at the beginning of this new school year is the strong increase in international students at Burgundy School of Business.

More than 50 will be studying at BSB’s post-graduate level, and over 200 international students will be arriving in the month of September to take classes in the Masters in Management Grande Ecole and Bachelor programmes. They come from 26 countries and 51 partner universities from across the globe. 8 of them, from Germany, Austria and Mexico respectively, have come to do a double degree. The Philippines (10 students), Mexico (8 students) and Belgium (7) students are particularly well represented this year.

In addition, Burgundy School of Business is welcoming Brazilian students for the very first time and our new partner, University of North Texas, is a strong point for the school this year.

Another very positive sign of BSB’s international appeal can be found in the fact that a dozen plus foreign students have joined the school through Passerelle World, compared to one student last year.

Approximately 30 other students from our Chinese partner universities are here on an exchange in the first year Master in Management Grande Ecole programme and will be able to graduate next year. They have been selected by the school and their academic skills as well as their ability to integrate are keys for their success.
