As of the start of the next academic year, the International Bachelor in Business Administration (BBA) of La Rochelle Business School - Excelia Group will be based in Paris.
The first year of the course will be available, from the start of the 2020 academic year, 100% in English. This opening of the programme is based on a partnership with the ISIT Paris - Institute of Intercultural Management and Communication, whose agreement has been e-signed - in a context of necessity - on 27 April. The complementary expertise of the two Grandes Ecoles will provide a very high level intercultural and multilingual approach to this programme, which already enjoys strong international recognition and dimension. The BBA of La Rochelle Business School - Excelia Group will be taught on the ISIT campuses in Paris and Arcueil.
A beneficial and complementary partnership
ISIT is a major Business School for Management and Intercultural Communications training students to become multilingual experts in fields such as Marketing, Communications, Digital, Legal, Translation etc. It holds the EESPIG label which is awarded to not-for-profit higher education establishments contributing to the public service of higher education and research. Located both in Paris and Arcueil, ISIT will offer one of Excelia Group's flagship programmes, as of September 2020, namely the BBA International, La Rochelle Business School's Bachelor programme in International Business Administration.
This partnership between ISIT and Excelia Group is part of a mutual desire to pool their complementary skills and areas of expertise: the multicultural and linguistic expertise of ISIT will further strengthen the international dimension of the BBA International, providing real added value, whilst La Rochelle Business School will share its renowned expertise in the field of Management.
Arcueil Campus: perfectly located at the gateway to Paris
ISIT opened in Arcueil in 2015 and the proximity of its campus to Paris offers a real advantage for its students. Its location not only means that they can enjoy the capital's landmark sites, but it makes it easier for them to carry out an internship or undertake a work-study track. Only 2 km from the 14th arrondissement, this commune in the Greater Paris area benefits from lower rents than central Paris yet is still well served by public transport. You can reach Châtelet or Gare du Nord in no time at all thanks to the RER Line B located a few minutes’ walk from the campus. If you need to get to Gare d'Austerlitz or Gare de Lyon, Bus 57 will take you straight there. And for those who prefer cycling, you can pick up one of the popular Vélib’ hire bikes at Laplace station... a practical way to get around and explore the streets of the ‘City of Light’.
A dynamic and connected campus
ISIT's Arcueil high-tech campus offers its students modern and well-designed areas for working and learning: lecture halls with videoconferencing, mini-boxes for group work, classrooms with interactive whiteboards, an innovation laboratory (known as ISITLab) equipped with the latest interactive technologies, a 300 m² Media Center, a library with specialised resources in the fields of Geopolitics, Management and Intercultural Communications... in short, the perfect recipe for studying in the best possible conditions!
Committed to educating students to become socially-minded and responsible citizens, ISIT boasts numerous dynamic clubs and associations. What's more, several of these mirror the values held dear by Excelia Group, such as Solidar’ISIT, which focusses on humanitarian work, Junior ISIT, which promotes professional development, and Carrières Internationales, which explores the workings of international organisations. And of course, they have their very own Bureau des Étudiants, the Student Office, an emblematic association responsible for acting as a link between students and the School's administration. This association organises the popular induction weekend and many other activities and events that are sure to make your student life unforgettable!
