ESTICE - International - I am international - Living international through experiences abroad

Living international through experiences abroad

This ambition is illustrated by a multicultural teaching team resolutely turned towards the international, with more than half of the courses taught by native speakers, trilingual learning, and the possibility of spending 6 to 24 months abroad, depending on the students’ wishes.

Our students are noticed for their work capacity and their creativity in innovation competitions, intensive weeks, by being project leaders or even company creators. We are proud to help our students, through their unique experiences, to become responsible, agile and creative citizens of the world.

Supporting students in their professional projects

The program aims to reinforce the employability of our students in a multicultural world, in constant transformation thanks to technological and digital innovations, but also influenced by new societal expectations.

In this context, we help our students find their professional path according to who they are, their aspirations, in a sector (traditional, new economy, market, non-market) or a form of activity (salaried or entrepreneurial) that corresponds to them.

For 5 years, ESTICE students are involved in an integrated and progressive program. They are accompanied by a multidisciplinary teaching teammade up of professionals, entrepreneurs, academics, and international researchers.
