About the Program

General:  Lyon - This city has acquired the unquestionable status of a European metropolis.
Welcoming headquarters of international institutions and large companies including chemical and health industries, the city also retains the assets of its rich cultural past.

Bordeaux - It is in the historical heart of the Chartrons  and more precisely on the very premises of the breeding of the famous wines of Bordeaux that INSEEC took up residence about forty years ago.  Students have a  unique working environment  within a surprising building: behind the long traditional facade of Raze Street, the vaulted cellars have been transformed into high-tech teaching spaces.

Semester Program: Students can participate in a semester or academic year exchange where they will have opportunities to take coursework in a variety of disciplines. 

Housing and Meals: INSEEC has housing available in student apartments. 

Entry Requirements: Students must apply for a visa (French Social Security) is studing there for 90+ days.

Health Insurance: It is a university policy that all WIU students who study abroad are either covered under WIU student health insurance OR have purchased the Patriot Travel Medical Insurance plan through IMG.
