Program Description

The University
Founded in 1899, Burgundy School of Business (BSB) is a leading teaching and research school belonging to the network of top French academic institutions in management. BSB has a deep commitment to the values of responsibility, openness and creativity, and places entrepreneurial management firmly at the center of their teaching and research mission: to train managers ready to act as entrepreneurs in both business and society at large.

The Surrounding Area
The Burgundy region lies mid-way between the wide-open cereal plains of northern France and the industrialized valley of the Rhône. It is a land of undulating hills, woods and waterways flowing through a green and yellow patchwork of fields with a scattering of sleepy picturesque villages, chateaux and historic buildings bordered by hedges. Dijon is the capital of Burgundy with a rich cultural heritage and one of the best preserved historic centers with beautiful architecture. Museums, cinemas, and festivals are all just a few minutes away in this walkable city, and bike rental stations around the city make cycling just as viable an option.
