ESCE is a private business school located in Paris, France. Exchange students have the option of taking French Language courses at different levels during the semester in combination with business courses taught in English. The business courses are part of a Master’s program; however WSU undergraduate business students who have completed most of their business core classes can be accepted into this program. Exchange students interested in this program should have a good GPA in their business classes and be ready to take upper-division business classes. A variety of different business classes are offered in areas such as management, marketing, entrepreneurship, international business, and finance. Students must pay for at least 12 U.S. credit hours at WSU, regardless as to the number of courses they choose to take, while on the exchange.
Spend the summer in Paris studying the French language and taking business courses taught in English. Typically, the summer program is 4 weeks long, which includes an Intensive French Language Course with 2 business courses taught in English. Students are not required to have any previous knowledge of the French language. The exchange program will allow students to potentially earn 6 credit hours total with 4 credit hours of French language and 2 credit hours of upper-level business. This is a great opportunity for students interested in learning or improving the French language skills while also, learning about the French culture as well as doing business in France.
