Courses available - BBAE

A customized study program

You need to earn 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credits.
Study plans are very flexible. The only condition for you to validate a Bachelor in Business and Applied Economics is that you need to earn at least 40 credits (2/3 of total credits) with economic courses. Remaining credits can mix French courses, English courses, sport or other economic courses.

Depending on your project, you can build a customized study program:

  • Plan with economic courses only : you need to select all ECO-units;
  • Plan with economic courses and intensive FLE (French as a Foreign Language) : you need to select 40 ECTS credits from ECO-units, 5 or 10 ECTS credits for intensive FLE (Units FLE1 and FLE2) and 10 or 15 other credits (sport or Business English 1/2 or other ECO-units);
  • Or any combination of the two previous plans.
