AT A GLANCE /LOCATION
KEDGE Business School is located in Marseilles, France. In 2013, Euromed School of Management in Marseilles and Bordeaux School of Management merged to form the KEDGE Business School. Today, 30% of the students are international and come from more than 40 different nationalities.
KEDGE Business School has several campuses throughout France. Belmont students study at the Marseilles campus on the Mediterranean Sea in the south of France. With around 1 million inhabitants, Marseille is the second largest city in France in terms of population and the largest in terms of area. Its population is a real melting pot of different cultures. The people of Marseille have varying ethnic backgrounds, with a lot of Italians and Spanish having immigrated to the area after the second world war. From colourful markets (like Noailles market) that will make you feel like you are in Africa, to the Calanques (a natural area of big cliffs falling into the sea - Calanque means fjord), fr to the Vieux-Port (old harbor) and the Corniche (a road along the sea) Marseille has definitely a lot to offer.
September - December
January - June
AREAS OF STUDY
Exchange students are able to take classes at the bachelor or master levels, depending on their classification at their home institution, and in French or English. All international students are able to take a French language class. A list of courses, course load, language of instruction, academic calendar, and course registration can be found here.
Since this is an AACSB school, this is a good location for Belmont business students to consider taking courses. Belmont students may be interested in courses in the following areas: accounting, entrepreneurship, finance, information systems management, international business, law, marketing, management, and operations.
KEDGE Business School offers rooms in two main student residences, which are located on Luminy Campus (Alotra and Estudines). The monthly rent may vary between 260 and 470 Euros ($300-500 per month), depending on room size and the residence. Reservation for rooms on campus need to be done at least three months in advance and directly to the housing department itself. Rooms are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. If students are unable to secure space on campus, the international office through KEDGE will provide assistance for off-campus accommodations. More information about housing is located here.
Students pay housing directly to KEDGE Business School.
2. Belmont Tuition
Tuition is charged at the regular semester rate. Students pay tuition to Belmont.
