Program Overview

Founded in 1900, Burgundy School of Business is one of the most selective management schools in France.

Accredited by both EQUIS and AACSB, it is ranked as the 125th best business school in the world.
It offers a creative learning environment in a quintessential French city. Dijon is how you imagine a French city to look and feel. Take a look for yourself!

BSB has a long tradition of welcoming international students. 30% of the school's 2500 students, and 35% of the faculty are from outside of France, and almost all courses are taught in English. There is no French language requirement for this exchange, but BSB offers free French lessons to help you develop or improve your French language proficiency.

BSB also offers a business incubator program called The Entrepreneurial Garden (TEG) that offers students the opportunity to work one on one with faculty, local business-people, and even local accountants and lawyers to ascertain the viability of their business plans and models.
 
Fall is the best semester to exchange to BSB as classes are most predictable during this term. However, if you are interested in entrepreneurship or the wine and spirits business, spring is a good term to consider. Contact the Director of Gatton Global Initiatives, Ms Summer Eglinski for more information about the BSB School of Wine and Spirits.



Take a 2 minute tour of BSB.

The Burgundy School of Business is a good academic fit for ...
any student interested in entrepreneurship, marketing, sales, agricultural economics, or arts administration. Students should have finished about 60 hours with a 3.0 GPA.
Depending on which track a student wishes to pursue, it will be helpful to have about one year of pre-major business courses completed. However, students considering the wine and spirits business track or arts administration will have more flexibility in terms of the business-specific course prerequisites.
