NSU students to study business in Paris, France
THIBODAUX — The ESCE International Business and Management School in France, which in recent years has sponsored several French nationals studying at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, will for the first time host two Nicholls students in Paris this fall.
Graduate students Kristen Legendre and Sanja Stanojcic, both of the Nicholls College of Business Administration, will study business techniques and theory while immersing themselves in French language and culture during the fall semester.
Founded 40 years ago, ESCE annually enrolls around 350 international students at the Paris campus, while about 400 French students participate in the exchange and double degree programs throughout the rest of the world.
“Kristen and Sanja will have the opportunity to study international business in an international locale, and that is exactly the sort of broad educational experience we want to encourage among our student body in the Bayou Region,” said Debi Benoit, director of research and sponsored programs at Nicholls.
Such opportunities for Nicholls students, both undergraduate and graduate, span the globe. “Nicholls Europe,” for example, is Louisiana’s second oldest international study program.
Participating students and community members travel and study in England, Italy, France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark and the Czech Republic. The 17-day program, held each June, facilitates personal study of art, drama, architecture, government and history.
Students of all disciplines may earn undergraduate or graduate credit.
More than 10 additional study-abroad opportunities for Nicholls students of all disciplines are detailed at http://www.nicholls.edu/abroad/.
Locales include various European and Latin American nations.
