Study Abroad in Paris - American Business School: Academics

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 Two-Week Culture and Careers Extension Program ($xxx)

The objectives of this extension program are to expose students to areas that they would normally not have access to – cultural, language, career development, and more – and to leverage their time in Paris. Students will enrich their study abroad experience by going beyond the typical classroom into the community and business world that surrounds them. By taking advantage of this extension program, students will learn how to leverage this unique experience for future career opportunities.

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.

Schedule conflict Due to the number of courses available, students should realize some timetable conflicts may be unavoidable.
