Paris School of Business opens its first international campus in Milan

Mid-March saw the inauguration of Paris School of Business' first international campus in the heart of Milan, Italy, within the prestigious NABA school of art and design, the Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti. Both schools are part of the Galileo Global Education Group, a world leader in higher education. Paris School of Business will launch the new European Track as part of its Grande Ecole Program at the start of the 2024 academic year.

Paris School of Business chooses Europe for international expansion

By choosing to locate this new campus in a dynamic city like Milan, Paris School of Business is pursuing its strategic plan to 2028 around the 3 main pillars already presented: Academic Excellence, Differentiation, Development. The school is thus affirming its determination to become Europe's leading hybrid post-baccalaureate school, training multicultural managers and the creative, responsible and international leaders of tomorrow.

“The first Parcoursup figures confirm a growing interest among applicants for higher education in Europe. This trend can be explained by the fact that the continent includes a large number of attractive cities, but also by the current geopolitical context, the re-continentalization of economies and a growing awareness of sustainable development.
As a challenger among France's top business schools, we felt it was our duty to respond to this demand by increasing our presence in Europe's major cities".
Rabih Haddad, Director of Business Development and International Relations
The Paris School of Business campus is located in the Navigli district, one of Milan's most charming and lively areas. It offers students modern facilities and the infrastructure they need to make their student experience a success: design labs, specialized libraries, bar, restaurant, lounge, open spaces for group projects, large-format print shop, placement office for internships and job searches, housing assistance office, Language Center, etc.

A European Track of excellence within the Grande Ecole Program

The class of 2024-2025 in Milan will be composed of 30 students in the first year of the European Track of the Grande Ecole Program (5 years to obtain the Master's degree). The first 3 years of the track are spent on 3 campuses in major European cities: 1st year in Milan, 2nd year in Munich and 3rd year in London. Students then spend the last two years of the Master's program on the Paris campus.

They can also complete their 5th year with an international partner with the best rankings in their country, and obtain a double degree. The European track meets the needs of students who wish to develop an international career and learn several foreign languages from the very start of their studies. The program is the same as the one teached in France and is 100% taught in English. The courses are designed in collaboration with NABA in Milan, which enables students to combine business sciences, fashion, art and media.

"The program aims to train creative and international leaders. It's very ambitious, but we've put in the necessary resources to make it a path of excellence: junior consulting project each year, weeks of hybridization with the partner, and of course the international dimension by studying in a new country each year".
Jean-Guy Bernard, Chairman of the Board of Directors.
"We're not just another school! We realized very early that future managers needed to be multi-skilled, flexible and creative in order to be excellent leaders. There can be no business without creativity. With this in mind, we have created "hybrid" courses that enable our students to strengthen their technical skills in business, while at the same time developing skills in art, design, public speaking and tech.
This 360° vision is an asset when it comes to managing and integrating new business challenges.” Antoine Véniard, Director of Programs and Student Experience
