An international dimension, Excelia Business School’s particular strength

Internationalisation is one of the areas in which Excelia Business School stands out in the Financial Times 2023 ranking, performing particularly well in two criteria: 

  • International faculty (ranked 21st in the world)
  • International course experience (ranked 3rd in the world)
    As one of Excelia Business School’s key strengths since entering the Financial Times ranking, international experience is particularly well developed and, in addition to the traditional academic exchanges and work placements abroad, there are compulsory humanitarian projects including Humacité©, which 80% of students carry out internationally.
