The International MBA is a challenging program allowing students to build a firm foundation through core courses in business and management theories. Students also complete capstone modules, consisting of business simulations which enable students to become decision-makers in a fast-paced environment. Our mission is to apply course-based learning to real world situations. The International MBA uses case studies and real-world examples to make academic learning relevant and immediately applicable. As students typically bring strong professional experience to the classroom, learning is particularly dynamic and interactive: syllabi clarify the body of knowledge to be mastered, while reference textbooks facilitate student preparation and home-learning. Our experienced international faculty brings academic and professional learning to life. Our specialized faculty members collectively bring cutting-edge teaching methods to the table, ensuring that students receive quality training in International Management and Business. During the International MBA program, students advance their skills and knowledge in business and management in order to take the next step in their international careers. Paris School of Business stresses the importance of real business case studies, in-company projects, and hands-on learning. We also train students in a specific field such as finance, marketing and management which are sought-after domains in the business world of today. International MBA students also have the opportunity to complete an internship of up to 6 months in France or abroad. This optional internship provides students with the ideal opportunity to put their newly acquired skills into practice in a real business setting.
Our semester programmes are aimed at students from all countries, who want to experience living in Paris and learning about French history, culture and arts as well as the professional skills of the cultural management consultant, dealer or collector. Each semester starts with a month-long induction of intensive French classes and introduction to French culture. After that, while continuing French studies, students choose two additional specific options, ranging from art history, French literature or philosophy, twentieth-century cinema and literature. The autumn semester includes a special option in the business of the art market while in the spring semester, we offers a special option in cultural events management. All these courses are taught in English. Students fluent in French may opt for courses from the range of IESAÃ¢??s undergraduate programmes in art history, cultural management or art business. As part of each semesterÃ¢??s programme, there are excursions offered on the weekends: a day trip to the Palace of Versailles and a weekend trip either to Normandy or the Valley of the Loire. There are also many evening excursions to the galleries and cultural events in Paris.
