Nice - Business, Sustainability & Immigration

Program Overview

Nice’s ideal location on the sea makes it a jewel in the Mediterranean region—one of the oldest trading regions in the world. (It’s often described as an area of mutual economic, social, and cultural exchange). It’s this rich history, as well as the city’s spectacular beauty, that has attracted immigrants from a variety of countries. Enjoy all that this wonderfully diverse city on the Côte d’Azur has to offer while studying Business, Sustainability, Immigration, and other issues unique to France and the Mediterranean region.

You will take your area studies courses at the IES Abroad Center. You will also have the options of supplementing your IES Abroad courses with Business courses at the AACSB- and EQUIS-accredited SKEMA Business School, named one of the best European business schools by the Financial Times. The school is committed to promoting sustainability and corporate social responsibility, with more than 20% of their courses devoted to these principles. SKEMA is located in nearby Sophia Antipolis, a global research park known as the French Silicon Valley, and home to more than 1,300 high-tech companies and start-ups.

Nice and the French Riviera will be your classroom. Imagine yourself walking the medieval cobblestone streets of the Old Town, hiking the incredible biodiversity of the region, or visiting Monaco for the day. Whether you’re an advanced French language student or a beginner, this program offers full immersion into the culture of Nice through courserelated trips, cultural activities, and volunteer opportunities.

Why Nice?

As the fifth largest city in France, Nice is the capital of the French Riviera and an international metropolis, with more than 160 different nationalities living and working in the region. Because Nice is a European and Mediterranean hub to the world (its international airport is just 5 km from the city center), the city is host to a large number of international businesses and schools, a center for innovation, and a celebrity hotspot.
