Designed for students who wish to study abroad in Paris and take their courses with French students, this program allows students to select their courses from those offered at the Université Paris Dauphine. Classes are offered in English with other international students, and students can also select classes in French with local students if they have the sufficient language level. Students with the appropriate language level may complete a course for API students, taught in French by a local professor at the API Paris Center. Interested students may also choose to complete a teaching internship for an additional fee.

UNIVERSITÉ PARIS DAUPHINE

Established in 1968, the Université Paris Dauphine is a leading business school in France. Its campus is located next to the Bois de Boulogne and supports a strong international student body.  Roughly one-fourth of Dauphine’s student population is made up of international students. Dauphine specializes in the fields of organizational sciences and decision making. It also offers courses in management, economy, law, political science, sociology, applied mathematics, information technology and data processing. Courses are predominantly taught in French, but numerous options are available to take coursework in English as well. To prepare for the immersion experience, students complete preparatory program or “stage” aimed at introducing visiting students to the French academic system and the campus. Admission to this program is selective.

TRANSCRIPTS

Transcripts are issued by the University of Massachusetts Amherst upon completion of the program.
