When most people think of Paris, they think of iconic sights, like the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, and the Arc de Triomphe. These sites are important emblems of France's history, but today Paris is one of the most important business, financial, and political centers of the world. It has one of the highest GDPs of any city in the world, and is home to Fortune Global 500 companies that specialize in insurance, banking, and energy.
Paris is also known as the fashion capital of the world, hosting designers such as Chanel, Christian Dior, Yves Saint-Laurent, and many more. Enjoy all that Paris has to offer while studying Business and International Affairs in the City of Light.
The Business & International Affairs Program offers IES Abroad courses taught by faculty from diverse backgrounds and disciplines. The program also offers students the option to take English-taught courses with French and international students at Novancia, the premier business school founded by the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Enjoy field study trips within Paris, and excursions to important cities such as Geneva and Brussels. Or, gain valuable experience through a business-focused internship. With course offerings in English and French, and French language study, the IES Abroad Business & International Affairs Program is a unique experience for study abroad in Paris.

You know what it's like to fall in love—but Paris won't break your heart. You'll want to spend all of your time admiring cultural icons like the Eiffel Tower. You'll get lost in the city's exquisite art scene. You'll want to savor the decadent French cuisine at local restaurants. You'll take long walks along the River Seine and wander aimlessly through the city streets for hours. All in the name of love. Je t'aime, Paris!
We strive to make sure you feel safe, cared for, and at home while you’re away from home. Whether it’s the orientation program that makes you feel prepared, your housing that is well-located and comfortable, the cultural events that make it easy and fun to meet other international and local students, or the field trips and walking tours that take you to places tourists don’t usually see—we’re all about our student service. Learn more about the day-to-day studying abroad on this program. From field trips to housing, it’s all on IES Abroad’s website.
