The following editorial was written by International students studying at KEDGE
1. Enjoy Studying Subjects You Love
A lack of choice is NOT an issue with the Kedge International Summer School. Kedge offers 4 different programs (10 courses all together) in Marseille between June 5 and July 26. All are business related but also quite different and unique. Sports Marketing, CSR and Sustainable Development, Cross Cultural Negotiations, French as a Foreign Language…you have the opportunity to choose the subject(s) that interest you the most. And if you see a class in one program, and another in a different program, no problem - you have the flexibility to build your own “hybrid” option!
2. Earn Anywhere from 5 to 40 Transferrable ECTS credits
A Summer School is great, but what about transferring those credits back home? Transferrable ECTS credits is something every degree seeking student is concerned about. Kedge gives the Summer School students the opportunity to earn credits during the summer by taking as little as one 5-ECTS class in a week, or as many as 8 courses (40 ECTS) over 2 months! Each of the four offered program packages delivers at least 10 ECTS, which means that you can spend your summer working closer to the required ECTS for your university degree at home, AND enjoy the beauty of Marseille and southern France at the same time.
3. Live in a Multicultural Environment
The Kedge International Summer School hosts students from around the globe, which is the perfect opportunity to meet the students from completely different parts of the world. One of the main goals of the KEDGE Summer School is to live up to the Kedge Business School motto (CREATE SHARE CARE), by creating a diverse and attractive academic setting to promote interaction and exchange between international students.
4. Marseille – Is there a better place for summer vacation?
It doesn’t matter what interests you have, Marseille will completely satisfy all of them! It is one of the biggest and oldest cities in France which offers cultural monuments and gorgeous beaches; the Calanques National Park borders the Kedge Luminy campus; you have museums, expositions, and of course, night life. It is a magnificent place that you have to visit at least once during your life.
