Since its creation in 1889, BSB has welcomed international students: in 1926 it was the first school in France to provide business education for international students, and was one of the first business schools to establish exchange agreements with partner universities, such as the University of Pforzheim in 1965. At BSB we value the cultural enrichment and global perspectives that international students bring to life on campus, both academically and personally. That’s why we are proud to welcome nearly 700 international students to our campuses every year, with 75 nationalities represented.
Whether it’s for a degree, one or two exchange semesters, a double-degree or a short programme, choose a school tuned in to the student experience, a school at a human size. Choose BSB!

THE FRENCH SYSTEM OF THE GRANDES ECOLES
The Grandes Ecoles are a uniquely French system, in which higher education courses and training in engineering and management are delivered by the Grandes Ecoles.
The Grandes Ecoles are medium-sized institutions (between 1500 and 1800 students) known for their selective recruitment, academic excellence and close relationships with business. They are authorised by the French Ministry of Education to deliver Masters degrees conforming with international standards.
France currently has 38 management Grandes Ecoles and 155 schools of engineering grouped within the Conference of the Grandes Ecoles (CGE). Since 1986 BSB has been part of this prestigious association, recognised by the state to deliver degree programmes for a minimum of five years of study after the Baccalaureate, leading to a Masters degree.

At BSB, nearly 40% of international professors are involved in the programmes on a daily basis, with 19 nationalities represented on the permanent faculty.
Each year, BSB also welcomes more than thirty prestigious international university professors as part of the Masters Grande Ecole Modules of Excellence. They teach in English on their areas of expertise, providing students with multicultural insights in a range of areas.
