For a number of years, Burgundy School of Business has been developing short term programmes tailored to fit the specific needs of our international partners. In 2012, eight summer programmes have been organised, and more than 170 students, coming mostly from the United States and Australia, have been welcomed.

Among the new events of this year: for the first time a group of 26 MBA students from Stellenbosch University (South Africa) have been received here. In the programme: conferences and visits organised by the school, as well as meetings with Executive MBA students and graduates. As well as this, a student from the Grande Ecole programme is leaving on an academic exchange in July, for one semester.

BSB signed an agreement in 2009 with this prestigious institution, one of the best universities of The Cape, accredited by EQUIS and AMBA. This agreement will, more generally, strengthen the partnership between Burgundy and The Cape region.

This is the kind of agreement that illustrates perfectly the qualitative strategy of BSB in terms of international partnerships... and shows that Dijon is very present internationally, through programmes such as this one.
