Select a section


Pick between a work placement, international internship or a sandwich placement.  The choice is yours on the Grande Ecole Programme, giving students the opportunity to gain up to 21 months of invaluable professional experience during their studies:

  • Work placement: 3 months minimum at the end of Year 1, giving you a first taste of what it is like to work in the field of management,
  • Gap year (optional),
  • Professional placement: 6 months minimum in Year 3.

Gap year

The optional gap year involves you taking a temporary break from your studies to enhance your future employment prospects.  It is a fantastic opportunity to gain a significant personal experience either on your own, or within a host organisation in France or abroad
