A private, non-profit institution, Groupe ISC is dedicated to fostering excellence in the teaching of general and specialized management skills. Students are taught entrepreneurial skills within the context of a quality education, and by combining the four strands of this education (academic, junior enterprise activities, international experience, and in-company training), they learn academically as well as behaviorally. It is an institution with approximately 1,500 students and offers both undergraduate and post-graduate degree programs with a total academic staff of over 300 professors and lecturers, visiting professors, and business professionals. The campus is located on the west side of Paris, close to the major business district in one of the most beautiful areas.
The majority of the business classes are taught in English; however, you may choose to take classes in French. There is a range from marketing and retailing to management and logistics/distribution.
Graduate students in business, both MBA and MACC, can fulfill elective requirements through an international business seminar offered at ISC. This two-week seminar is offered during the May term, typically the week following finals. Participating students acquire cultural sensibility and European business expertise from outstanding faculty and seasoned professionals from the corporate world. Undergraduate seniors are also eligible to participate in the seminar.
ISC Paris will assist with accomodation coordination prior to arrival. Accommodation in Paris may be very expensive so you may want to look at the housing options. It would also be a good idea to look for a furnished one. You may choose from the foyers, the student residence halls, and apartment hotels. The student residence is the most popular accomodation, the apartment hotels are the most expensive, and the foyers are the most reasonable. The meal options differ with each housing choice.
