What our students say about usTestimonials

Victoire Hossard
Class of 2017 - Founder of Chichi Castelnango
I started a business while studying at EDC Paris Business School. And in parallel, I integrated the Student Entrepreneur Course. This course is a great accompaniment from A to Z on all our business creation.
Margaux Lelux
Class of 2018 - Cofounder of OANI - To The Wall & Beyond
Christelle Georget
Class of 2018 - Corporate Real Estate Consultant at CBRE
I chose "IE" for its international aspect. I have just returned from an internship with an Australian start-up. There are so many opportunities and markets to seize abroad!
Adrien Tabone
Class of 2019
All the missions carried out were rich of teaching. At the end of the year, I did my internship "Commercial Force" in a Nicolas shop as a Proxy Manager and I gained a lot of autonomy and rigor.
Julien Brassart
Class of 2020
I've lived in several countries and I speak 4 languages. The choice of EDC Paris Business School was obvious to me because I was looking for a school with an international opening and a course all in English.
