Before going abroad I had no interest in the news or what was really going on in the rest of the world - I fell into the typical American trap of self-absorbency. Travelling and learning about these countries from a European perspective. Since then I have read the news everyday! - Villanova University View Entire Review
The worst thing about the study abroad experience was the PEOPLE in the program. We just didn't click.. people coming to study in Paris are just not people I would hang out with at home.

About

When most people think of Paris, they think of iconic sights, like the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, and the Arc de Triomphe. These sites are emblems of France’s history, but today Paris is one of the most important business, financial, and political centers of the world. It has one of the highest GDPs of any city and is home to Fortune Global 500 companies that specialize in insurance, banking, and energy. As an important location in the European Union, Paris is also home to international agencies such as the European Institute for Security Studies, the OECD, and UNESCO.

Enjoy all that Paris has to offer while studying business and international affairs in the City of Light. You can also enroll in an internship, which includes time spent working at your placement and an academic seminar that helps you contextualize what you’re learning.
