What our students say
“I chose my course because it was flexible to my needs and would also allow me to continue learning a language while studying international business. My course is particularly special and unique, because it gave me the the chance to study at KEDGE Business School in Marseille for two years, which included a six month internship. This has resulted in me becoming near-fluent in French and also allowed me to work with students from all over the world.”
Rebecca Carter, BA (Hons) International Business (with French)
