Students enroll in a six-week intensive French language training and orientation program at ESCP before beginning a full-time internship. In conjunction with the internship, you will write a research project in English and perform an oral presentation about your research at the end of your program. You will earn a total of 15 credits in this program including:
6 credits for the internship/research paper (B99 999P)
6 credits of French language
1.5 units MGT 450I - an online course designed to deepen the overall learning gained from your internship.
1.5 units MGT 450Z - for the European Study Tour
Students do not have the option to select other course work in this particular program. All graded course will be calculated in your WU GPA.
EUROPEAN STUDY TOURAll of our European program students in the spring (London, Paris, Koblenz and Madrid participants) participate in a weeklong European Study Tour (last week of January) while abroad. This tour is designed to give students an intense introduction to the aspects and challenges facing the European Union. Each student will visit a pre-assigned EU country in a pair. During the visit, the pairs will meet with government and business experts to research their country’s attitudes about a specific issue such as enlargement or the Euro financial crisis. Each student will then travel to Brussels, Belgium to represent his or her country at a mini-parliament exercise where students will debate the current assigned issue. There is an additional cost of $1000 for the logistics of the two trips, which will be arranged by Olin. Students will earn 1.5 credits for the European Study Tour.
