Summer Programs

Discover Paris during the Summer:

The American Business School of Paris gives you the opportunity to study in Paris for one or two months during the summer. Come and enjoy the City of Lights as it gradually adopts a more leisurely pace come summertime. And no matter where you live in Paris, you won’t be far from a sunny “café terrasse” or a tantalizing traditional “patisserie.” You’ll see that there’s no better place to spend your summer!
