Paris, France


BBA-ESSEC is the undergraduate business program within the ESSEC Business School. Founded in 1913, ESSEC is placed consistently at the top of business school rankings in France. It is part of the elite grande école system and is AACSB and EQUIS accredited. French students undergo a rigorous selection process for admission, with a total undergraduate population of just over 4,000 students.

BBA-ESSEC is located in Cergy-Pontoise, a suburb of Paris developed in the 1960s that has around 200,000 inhabitants. ESSEC, previously located in Montparnasse, relocated to Cergy in order to expand and build an American-style residential campus. You will find modern services and shops readily available, along with campus activities, sports clubs and dormitories. Cergy’s convenient location means you can easily take the train to Paris for evenings and weekends and travel widely in Europe.
