The TABSA partners met at KEDGE Business School

The Transatlantic Business Alliance (TABSA) network was established in 1998 by 8 European and American Business Schools. Its missions include developing and promoting double-degree programmes at the Bachelor's level (IBBA and EBP programmes), facilitating student exchanges at the Master's level, as well as exchanges of professors within the Faculty. The TABSA alliance meets twice a year, alternating between the USA in spring and Europe in autumn. Thus, KEDGE, a member of this network since its inception 25 years ago, hosted the European meeting on the Marseille campus from November 15 to 17.

A full programme of meetings with students 

For 3 days, the current members of the TABSA network traveled to Marseille for their biannual meeting. Partners were first welcomed with a dinner upon their arrival. Then, a busy agenda awaited them from the second day, starting with a campus tour, followed by discussions and the sharing of best practices regarding the education of students in an international environment. Finally, the third day was dedicated to meeting with students. Partners had the opportunity to engage with their students currently on exchange at KEDGE and introduce themselves to KEDGE students interested in studying at one of the universities in the TABSA network. The afternoon was then devoted to relaxation with a visit to les Goudes and Callelongue In Marseille.
