Rouen Business School opens its doors to British undergrads
December 2011 — As of the 2012 academic school year, Rouen Business School’s Bachelor of Science in International Business programme will offer all of its classes in English from the first year, providing an opportunity for British students to do the entirety of their undergraduate degree in one of France’s top ten business schools.
With annual tuition fees reaching £9000 in some British universities this year, the programme will provide an attractive alternative to an increasingly expensive British education. The programme offers students a rich international experience with a one-year study abroad programme for all second-year students, a six-month international export project and up to one year of work experience, in addition to the fact that British students would already be studying abroad in France. French lessons are a part of the programme too, allowing British participants on this BSc to further differentiate themselves on their CV.
"With more than 100 international partner universities, high quality teaching from international faculty members and business professionals, this programme provides an outstanding opportunity for British students to undertake a truly international degree,” said Sarah Cooper, Director of the BSc in International Business programme. "Our students aren’t just numbers. We work with them on an individual basis to prepare their futures. From the moment they start at Rouen Business School, students follow a personal and professional development programme, arming them for the changes and challenges they will face in their careers.”
Other strengths of the programme include a curriculum based on multi-cultural teamwork and project management, foreign languages (with UK students taking at least one foreign language). Great importance is given to work experience – as opposed to many British programmes. The BSc in International Business offers work experience opportunities every year of the programme, serving as an excellent springboard to the student’s first job.
"Our future graduates will have both the skills and the personal qualities to be highly competitive and successful on an increasingly demanding international job market,” said Cooper.
