Mobility at IPAG Business School

Partner institutions are chosen based on the interest the country and city they are in presents in regards to IPAG’s curriculum, career prospects and opportunities for students to develop their professional networks and career plans.

Asia and South-America, especially Brazil, are central in IPAG’s short-term strategy for they offer important opportunities at academic and professional levels. To face a strong demand, IPAG also aims at developing a large network in English-speaking areas.

Mobility concerns mainly undergraduate students who are all required to spend at least one semester abroad for a study trip at one of IPAG’s partner universities or an internship in a foreign company. Faculty is also targeted by mobility related to teaching activities and research symposiums, for example.

IPAG offers 8 Dual Master Degrees in management and 2 Dual Bachelor Degrees delivered entirely in English. Those degrees are delivered in partnership with institutions located in Europe, North America and Australia. They target IPAG’s regular students and are also opened to international students who wish to develop their training.

Visiting Students

Visiting Students (exchange students enrolled in a partner university of free movers) wishing to enroll must complete all IPAG International Office requirements prior to their arrival in France.
