Program Overview

Explore business, economics, history, art and art history, international affairs, and culture while improving your French language skills in the picturesque south of France. Select from courses at CIEE’s partner schools, Toulouse Business School (TBS) and Institut Catholique de Toulouse (ICT), as well as CIEE Toulouse, all within walking distance of the city’s magnificent historical center. The option to take part in an internship offers students hands-on experience in international business. All courses are taught in English and are complemented with CIEE co-curricular activities and excursions beyond the city to enhance classroom learning and provide intercultural understanding.

AACSB and EQUIS Accreditation
Students take 5-8 credits of business classes offered in English at the Toulouse Business School (TBS). Additional business and other content area classes are available to students, predominantly in French, at the Institut Catholique de Toulouse (ICT is not AACSB nor EQUIS-accredited), as well as CIEE-administered classes. The required CIEE-administered French language and CIEE elective classes are not transcripted by TBS, nor are ICT classes.
