The business world is operating more and more internationally. French companies are developing and opening branches abroad, and international companies are setting up in France. If you’re an English speaker, studying abroad is a great opportunity to prepare for a career in international business. But why select a master’s degree in France taught in English?

Why study an English-Speaking course?

If you are considering a masters abroad, English-speaking courses are often easier to find, especially as it’s the third most spoken language in the world. However, if English isn’t your first language, you may be required to prove you are proficient enough for the master’s course. Depending on the establishment, you may need to take a TOEIC or TOEFL test. There are many benefits to studying in English if you’re multilingual, as many companies conduct business in English, so they can access the US, UK, Australian, and Canadian market. Therefore it’s a highly sought after trait for recruiters.

For native English speakers, a master’s taught in English is likely the best choice. But if you still want to improve your employability for a career in international business, you may want to consider doing your course abroad. France is a great place for international students, although it wouldn’t hurt to learn a few French phrases before you begin your course.

Why study a Master’s degree in France?

As a business student, studying a masters abroad comes with many benefits. France in particular is a great choice for international students. The country is generally very accommodating to non-French speaking people, as France is the most visited country in the world. Paris in particular has 20 million tourists a year, which are primarily English speakers.

Enrich your cultural and professional experience

Studying as an international student opens doors to competitive international career opportunities. With major international cities like Paris and Nice, France has an abundance of opportunities for professional and cultural interests.  Studying in France will allow you to gain insights of living in a new country, learning from tutors and students from all over the world, and complete internships in international businesses. These are opportunities and employable traits you wouldn’t necessarily have if you complete your studies in your home country.
