Discovering partner universities, 19 January 2012
77 international students were welcomed into Burgundy School of Business on Wednesday 11 January, and will spend this semester in Burgundy. Of these, 24 are Erasmus and 53 non-Erasmus. They come from 25 countries and 38 partner universities. The countries that have sent the most students are the United States (12 students), China, India and Mexico (8 each). We are pleased to welcome exchange students from our two new Indonesian partner universities, BINUS University and IPMI. For the first time, we have received students from PUC Do Paranà (Brazil), Shanghai University (China) and Athens University of Economics and Business (Greece).
Study Abroad Fair
On the 19th January, our partner universities were presented at the Study Abroad Fair, which helped students in their 1st and 2nd years of the Grande Ecole programme (PGE), and those in the 2nd year of the Bachelor programme, to make their choice of study abroad destination. All PGE students spend between one and three semesters abroad during the course of their studies at Burgundy School of Business.
To begin the event, a presentation by Marie-José Albert-Batt on double degrees outlined the exemplary career paths of "ReseauDi" BSB graduates. This was followed by around fifteen presentations by the international students about their home universities. To support these presentations, the school's International Relations Office, as well as the international students, were available to speak with the students and to give them advice on their choice of destination. Videos about the partner universities were also shown on a big screen.
More than 300 of our students study abroad every year at partner universities and around the same number of international students study at Burgundy School of Business. The school has 120 international academic partners in 40 countries, and offers 35 double degrees in English-, German- and Spanish-speaking countries.
