PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
Students from BGSU travel to Nantes, France, to participate in a semester long program, while students from AUDENCIA Nantes attend BGSU during the academic year, joining BGSU business students in classes and     activities. Audencia Nantes School of Management is one of Europe's leading business schools with an  international campus that draws students from 54 countries. One of France’s elite Grande École education institutions that has earned all three major international academic accreditations for business schools (Equis, AACSB and AMBA) – a feat that less than one percent of business schools worldwide can match. Students typically participate in this program during their junior year and it is open to ALL business majors and minors.
