Business and Bachelor of Professional Studies

Spring 2 • May 11 - July 6, 2016 

Famous as the cosmopolitan capital of France, a city of history, grandeur, art and romance, Paris is bustling with the sounds of shopkeepers, school children, dreamers, and poets by day. As businesses close and workers retire for the evening, a different, perhaps equally mysterious and spectacular, Paris emerges. Home to more than 2.2 million, Paris sits on both banks of the river Seine. Keeping watch on the river from 
the top of the Eiffel Tower or strolling down the Left Bank to the bottom bookshelves at Shakespeare and Company, the city’s endless treasures await.

PARIS has been the destination of business students abroad seeking to expand their academic setting internationally. As an RMU student abroad you will spend 2 months learning about the country, the city, the culture and the global market. You will attend courses at the American Business School of Paris and reside in one of their student housing complexes where you will have the opportunity to meet people from around the world.

Experiencing Paris helps you prepare yourself academically and professionally to not only compete, but to succeed in an ever-changing, highly globalized workforce. The academic, professional, cultural, and individual opportunities offered are endless.
