Only 25 institutions, including 3 Grandes Ecoles de Management, obtain this reference label for hosting international students
BSB has just received the brand new "Bienvenue en France" label, which testifies to the quality of the reception of international students in French higher education institutions.
Mrs Frédérique Vidal, Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, awarded this label to 25 institutions on 8 July 2019, during the Rencontres Campus France de la Recherche et de l'Innovation, at the Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie. With ESSEC Business School and IMT Business School, BSB is one of only three accredited French Grandes Ecoles de Management.
This label is one of the main elements of the higher education attractiveness plan developed by France. It is granted by Campus France on the basis of a reasoned self-assessment, in direct contact with the concerns of international students. The criteria observed: the quality and accessibility of information, reception facilities, training opportunities, housing, campus life and the quality of post-graduate follow-up.
"It is an honour for BSB to be one of the first institutions to be accredited," says Marie-José Albert-Batt, Director of International Relations at BSB, who received the diploma from the Minister. "But more than that, this label testifies to BSB's excellence in terms of welcoming the 500 international students who come to our campus each year. It validates our strategy and efforts in this area, and provides us with an additional element of outreach. "
With the "Bienvenue en France" scheme, international students are guaranteed a national standard. The objective for France is to welcome 500,000 of them by 2027.
