ESSCA Angers
Business Exchange Program at École de Management in Angers, France -
4 week Summer Program

Through SIUE's longstanding relationship with ESSCA, selected business majors and minors may participate in the 4 week summer program in Angers, France. The 4 week ANGERS SUMMER PROGRAM (ASP) , taught entirely in English, offers a thorough understanding of how the European Union, and the delicately balanced cooperation between its member states, really functions. It also provides a firsthand initiation into all the essential aspects of European business and its interactions with the United States and other regions of the globe. The program begins with three weeks in the beautiful Loire valley city of Angers, then moves to Brussels for several days, with the final week in Paris.


Students earn six credit hours for participating in this program. Specific course equivalents are determined at time of registration.

ESSCA is located on the outskirts of Angers, a beautiful, green and lively city in the Loire Valley in Western France. Only 90 minutes from Paris, and 60 minutes from the spectacular beaches of the Atlantic coast, there are plenty of nearby beautiful places to explore. With a population of approximately 160,000 inhabitants it is still ranked as France’s 4th most student-friendly city (L’Etudiant, 2011) and is well known for its unique 12th Century fortress, as well as the world’s oldest medieval tapestry -which all add to the accommodating atmosphere of this beautiful city. The summer program begins with 3 weeks in Angers and then moves to Brussels for several days, with the final week in Paris.

The Angers Summer Program is June 8 to July 7, 2016.
