IAE FRANCE International outreach


An international outlook is embedded in the IAE ethos. To promote the internationalisation of IAE courses and the mobility of its students, IAE FRANCE conducts a range of actions to complement those of the IAEs:


IAE FRANCE partnerships

With a view to sharing and displaying the IAE ‘label’ internationally, IAE FRANCE has developed partnerships on an international scale:

Since 2017, McGill University’s School of Continuing Studies and the IAE FRANCE network have developed an agreement allowing IAE students to be hosted for a semester or a whole year at McGill. McGill University’s School of Continuing Studies is located on the campus of Canada’s best university in the heart of the city of Montreal and is recognised for the excellence of its teaching, its innovative programmes and its entrepreneurial teaching methods. The prestige of the host university motivates many of the students participating in the exchange, but it also offers an experience that is enriching both professionally and personally. To get more details on dates and departure arrangements, contact your IAE’s International Relations Department and they will be happy to provide you with all the information on the registration process.

Sichuan International Studies University (SISU) and the IAE FRANCE network, University Schools of Management, have been linked since 2016 through an international cooperation agreement between the two organisations for sending and hosting students. The partnership focuses on the exchange of Master level students in the English and French programmes of both schools. To implement each programme, a further agreement is signed between Sichuan International Studies University (SISU) and the IAE concerned. For any questions relating to the partnership, do not hesitate to contact your IAE’s International Relations Department.



Each year, IAE FRANCE is present at the three major international higher education events: the APAIE, NAFSA and EAIE conferences and exhibitions. Under the IAE FRANCE banner, IAEs share a stand in order to meet partners, develop partnerships and share their experiences with their international relations policy with other IAEs.


THE IAE FRANCE NETWORK is a member of Campus France Forum:

The Campus France Forum is a network of 350 French establishments and research organisations. The Forum’s members actively participate in the attractiveness policy implemented by Campus France.

Campus France has 4 main tasks:

  • Highlighting and promoting French higher education and research to foreign students and researchers.
  • Welcoming foreign students and researchers in France. The Campus France agency provides support to higher education establishments and local authorities to improve their hosting arrangements.
  • Managing scholarships, internships and other programmes for the international mobility of students and researchers.
  • Coordinating the network for French higher education alumni. Through the France Alumni platform, operational since 2014, Campus France networks former students and researchers, higher education establishments and businesses.

For information on registration procedures for international students, go to the Admissions section.


IAE has established more than 1,400 international partners in more than 50 countries around the world.

Participating in international exhibitions such as EAIE, APAIE and NAFSA makes it possible to find partners from all over the world in one place, to renew or develop conventions, and also to meet new partners for our IAE. These events represent a real opportunity for the internationalisation of our courses, research and teaching, which benefits our students.
