American Business School

Founded in 1985 the American Business School of Paris (ABSParis) is an international business school that welcomes students from over 80 different countries, allowing students to make friends from around the world and encounter in an academic setting the kind of multicultural business relations they might experience in their future careers. ABSParis’ goal is to prepare students for today’s global economy with an international focus and programs at both the undergraduate and graduate level. The Bachelor of Business Administration degree is accredited in the U.S. by the International Accreditation Council for Business Education (IACBE accredited by CHEA) and is also recognized in France through its certification by the French government. ABSParis is a member of AACSB International. All courses are taught in English and based on American educational methods: course flexibility and adaptability, interaction and exchange, online course selection as well as strong student-professor relationships.

Academic Overview and Policies

The summer program is designed primarily for those wishing to take business courses, but a range of general education/humanities courses are also offered each summer. Students choose two 3-credit courses and may also select an optional Careers and Culture Extension program for an additional 3 credits. French language study is not required, but for those who wish to begin or improve their French, Beginner and Intermediate level courses are offered.

Optional Culture and Careers Extension Program ($1,795)

The 2-week Extension Program is designed to expose students to cultural and career development experiences unique to their stay in Paris. It includes a series of specific activities built around cultural exposure, language and cultural exchange, as well as future career opportunities and introductions to new industries and areas of career development. The concept of the program is to leverage students’ proximity to the fashion and luxury industry in Paris, as well as companies from innovative start-ups to large multi-national Paris-based organizations, to bring a new perspective to the students’ viewpoint of their career path ahead. Students will be introduced to business vocabulary and have the opportunity to spend time with native francophone students who are motivated to exchange and learn more about their culture and language.

Attendance is required for full credit. Unexcused absences are not permitted.

Grades No AIFS participant is permitted to take a course without receiving a grade. Pass/Fail grade options are not available.
