SUMMER PROGRAM

L'ECOLE

The American Business School aims to train its students to become future business leaders who think internationally, take initiatives, and can work in multicultural teams.

In partnership with U.S. universities, the American Business School Paris has adopted the American higher educational system, recognized worldwide.

The business school combines interactive project-based teaching with a specifically designed program that allows you to develop your personality, independence, and sense of initiative.

To facilitate your transition into the workplace, the American Business School has also adopted French best training practices: internships, seminars, and individual coaching.

 

 

 

   

Paris, also known as the “City of Lights,” is a magnet for world culture and business. Our international students discover a place that acts, in essence, as a “hinge” between Europe, the Middle East, Asia…as well as the United States. For our students, France is both a nation of tradition and a 21st-century country focused on careers and values of the future.
Finally, I would like to emphasize that we do not just train and prepare our students for international careers, we also support them in their professional endeavors, both during and after their studies, up until our alumni are able to find a permanent position in a company that is suited to their skills and aspirations. As you can see, the support we provide our students never ends!

THE PROGRAM

The American Business School of Paris gives you the opportunity to study in Paris for one or two months during the summer. Come and enjoy the City of Lights as it gradually adopts a more leisurely pace come summertime. Pursuing a summer program in France is a great way to discover Paris and its famous landmarks differently, while studying international business. And no matter where you live in Paris, you won’t be far from a sunny “café terrasse” or a tantalizing traditional “pâtisserie”. You’ll see that there’s no better place to spend your summer!
