Study in one of France's most historic cities, Bordeaux. This amazing city dates back to the 3rd century BC. Located in the southern part of France, it is one of the nation's richest cities due to wine exports. Bordeaux has an exceptional location between the Atlantic Ocean, Pyrenees, and Auvergne Mountains. The city is well known for its magnificent gothic cathedrals and 18th century mansions. In addition, St. Michel's Church and its bell towers are historical landmarks from the 15th century that are still intact today. Home to more than 200,000 residents, Bordeaux is proud of its ethnically diverse population and lively university community.
Founded more than 130 years ago, Bordeaux Ecole de Management (BEM) has a long reputable history. The college has committed itself to preparing students to work in an international context by helping them to acquire necessary skills for the global society. In 2013, BEM and EUROMED MANAGEMENT created a new business school world named KEDGE Business School. More than 2,200 students are enrolled in a program of study at KEDGE, and over 500 of those students are on exchange programs from more than 20 countries. In addition, an information guide can be found here: KEDGE Business School Fact sheet 2014-2015.pdf
Students in the Masters in Management program will be taught by a variety of instructors, including business professionals. Many classes will include case studies or hands-on activities. Skills pertinent to global society such as knowledge of international practices and intercultural management experience will be emphasized. Students are required to take a French language course; all other courses are taught in English. A typical semester consists of 12-15 credits which amount to about 5 KEDGE subjects.

Students studying at KEDGE in Bordeaux generally live in an apartment in central Bordeaux with other international or French students. The student organization Melting Potes helps organize accomodation for incoming international students and also arranges for pick-ups at airports/train stations and events during your time in France.
