International Trade is key in today’s globalized economy and it’s importance continue to grow. More and more companies, not just the multi-nationals, are looking to grow their customer base by expanding internationally.

PACE

On years 1 & 2, the program is following a classical academic year rhythm. We do not have classes on Fridays, allowing our students to work that day if they need/want to.

On year 3, the rhythm is organized in such a way that our students can work Part-Time, which paves the way for employment. Our Career & Development Department offers Career & Outplacement services for our students.

If you follow the three years, you’ll earn 180 ECTS Credits.

VALIDATION/ THESIS

At the end of Year 3, the student will have to defend a Thesis which will carry on one of the subjects studied during the programme’s Major.
