What our students say about usTestimonials

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
Margaux Lelux
Class of 2018
In the 3rd year, I worked, within the framework of my internship, within the Orange External Communication Department, on two major events: the GQ Night Style in the Marais district, and the Euro football organized in France during the summer of 2016
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.
Victoire Hossard
