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. More than 2,200 students are enrolled in a program of study at BEM, and over 500 of those students are on exchange programs from more than 20 countries. BEM and EUROMED MANAGEMENT created a new business school world named KEDGE Business School. All correspondence from BEM will change to KEDGE in September 2013. You can visit the new website at www.kedgebs.com. In addition, an information guide can be found here: KEDGE/BEM Info Form 2013-2104
