Top 10 MBA Programs in France

Looking for an MBA in France? With the world’s sixth-largest economy, and the third largest in Europe, France is no small player. For business students looking to take the next step in their careers and undertake an MBA or an EMBA, business schools in France offer internationally-recognized MBA programs and great pan-European networking opportunities, as well as all the history and charm French cities are known for the world over. The capital, Paris, is both a beautiful setting for studying abroad and also a dynamic city ready for you to conduct your business or even start a new venture. If you're thinking about doing an MBA in other parts of France, the country's south offers a more temperate climate, with easy access to both industrial ports and the seaside for leisure, and the financial anomaly of Monaco. Many of France’s top business schools have multiple campuses across France, Europe and beyond, ensuring that your MBA in France will be a truly international experience.
