International Generation

The international Bachelor Degree allows you to follow a special curriculum in France offering an Anglo-Saxon University campus-style environment and teaching methods. Our students seek a new cultural experience and mindset, and not only training. They are creative and have a real eagerness to learn and encounter the world.

In the third year the students can either choose to engage in a full year abroad in one of our partner universities or to attend the courses at the FGES in Lille by following a third-year program entirely in English (see the program below by clicking on the Licence 3).

They must do their internship at the end of the 1st and 2nd year abroad.

This bilingual training is very selective (on file + English test + interview).

Create and Learn

This international degree is not bound by traditional teaching methods. It is rather revolutionary! The student is the main actor of his career. Creative, independent, rigorous, connected, he is ready to take part in the teaching method. Online courses, flipped learning, mind maps, co-design… are all part of his everyday world.
Take note: this course is ambitious and selective and has a price: a significant amount of personal work is expected each week. The easy world of secondary school is long gone!

Why choose the international bachelor?

  • 3rd year abroad or fully taught in English on Lille Campus

If you want to learn how Business and Economics work internationally while cultivating a global mindset, the International Licence in Economics and Management is the right choice for you. I particularly enjoyed being immersed in a diverse classroom with students from various nationalities both in Lille and then abroad during my 3rd year in Canada. A real asset of this program is how you learn to think out of the box in order to solve problems creatively. It was very helpful for me during my 10 week internship in India last summer. Then, this year I joined an International Master at Audencia Business School in Nantes, with the goal of working in CSR (=corporate social responsibility) projects management.

The International Bachelor in Economics and Management brings together open-minded people from different horizons with the same passion for economics, languages, and creativity.
The diversity and uniqueness of the program and the size of the classes are for me the real asset of this degree. I really appreciated the English-speaking environment as well as the creative approach of learning and teaching. All the classes, the projects and the professional opportunities supported my goal of working in Corporate Social Responsibility. After my third year in exchange in Canada, I am continuing my studies in the Master in Management of ESCP Business School.
