  • Providing optimal preparation for Business studies in France



For one academic year, students will be introduced to the American education system and learn the basics of business. They will attend regular class lectures and be invited to participate in professional development activities to direct them in their future career choices.

Students will complete 4 classes during the Fall semester, and upon successfully earning all 12 credits, they will attend 3 classes in the Spring semester, giving them the time and flexibility to prepare for retake their high school diploma exams. Students who pass their Spring classes and earn their high school qualification, will be able to transfer 9 credits into the 1st year BBA.



The pre-undergraduate program (PUP) is designed for EU students interested in pursuing their studies in France but who did not qualify for their high school diploma (baccalaureate) or equivalent.

Students must study for and pass their baccalaureate (high school diploma or equivalent) outside of the PUP curriculum during the year and earn a passing grade in all PUP courses in order to be eligible to join the 1st year BBA or BLUX program.
