The five-week summer program, taught entirely in English, offers a thorough understanding of how the European Union, and the delicately balanced cooperation between its member states, really functions. It also provides a first-hand initiation into all the essential aspects of European business and its interactions with the United States and other regions of the globe. This program allows students to take courses in international business with a focus on the European Union. During the first three weeks of the program, students study at the Angers campus and take classes on European Union business, economics, culture, and communication.

Overview

L'E´cole de Langue Franc¸aise (ELF) at the Universite´ du Que´bec a` Chicoutimi provides a complete French immersion experience, where you truly "live French." At the start of the program, an oral and written placement test is given to ensure that you enroll in the class that best matches your French language skills. Courses are offered at beginning, intermediate and advanced levels. To ensure that every student obtains the maximum possible benefit from the immersion program, you are expected to speak French at all times on- and off-campus. Making this experience fun and enjoyable inside and outside of the classroom is ELF's priority. Your classes are complemented by a wide range of social and cultural activities in and around Chicoutimi, guided outdoor recreation, and optional excursions to Quebec City and the beautiful Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean region.
Additional features: internships are available in spring and fall terms

 
Location

Since its foundation in 1909 ESSCA has drawn inspiration from the prestigious heritage of the French "Grandes Ecoles," the top graduate schools of management in France.  At the beginning of the 21st century ESSCA represents an innovative and forward-looking organization with 2000 French and international students on five different campuses, conscious of its tradition yet open to change and new ideas.  ESSCA's increasingly multinational faculty is committed to excellence and continuous improvement in both teaching and research. Strong links with the corporate world have been built up over the years and ESSCA cooperates with over 2000 companies each year for a range of activities, such as consulting, executive education, market research and student internships.

The program starts in Angers for the first three weeks and includes intensive classes as well as cultural and business field visits. Week 4 is the Brussels Seminar and Week 5 is in Paris.
