Ecole Superieure du Commerce Exterieur in Paris (ESCE)

Ecole Superieure du Commerce Exterieur in Paris (ESCE) is located in Paris, one of the world's most beautiful and culturally rich cities with a good mix of art galleries, museums, cafes, shops and nightlife. ESCE's campus is in the La Defense district, which is home to the headquarters of the biggest French and international companies.   

ESCE is one of the most recognized post-secondary private institutions in France. The institution is dedicated to providing students with an exceptional education and experience. At ESCE, students benefit from an effective learning experience through an interactive learning environment and small classes. Group work is a necessary component of the learning experience, training students to manage and accomplish a project or task while learning to work in cohesion with different personalities, levels of competencies, and leadership backgrounds. Students also work through real life case studies with discussion sessions and project presentations. 

Through exchange partnerships, ESCE aims to continue increasing the diversity of its student population in order to provide a multicultural environment that creates a unique learning experience for all its students and integrates them into the world of International Business and Management. As a designated exchange partner of ESCE, tuition fees for Coastal students are based on CCU In-State Tuition rates, and students are able to study abroad for a full year or a semester.

If you wish to find your own apartment in Paris, please consult the "Other Housing Possiblities in Paris" page in the below guide. ESCE will not be able to find you an apartment in Paris, but they will be happy to advise you. Housing in Paris is quite difficult to find and also expensive. If you want to rent a flat in France, you will need a guarantor (someone paying tax in France or your parents giving proof of their salary to secure payment of your rent). If you don’t have guarantor, you will be required to pay all your rent in advance.
