The Global Business Development Bachelor offers students the possibility to study for one or two semesters at ESDES and transfer their credits back to their own university. We currently have around 130 partner universities from around the world and the majority of the students in the IBP programme come from these institutions, but we do accept motivated students from other universities as well.

Classes are offered primarily in business in the areas of Finance, Marketing, Law and Strategy. Classes are available at both Bachelor's and Master's levels. Additional courses are offered in non-business areas such as the European Union, France in the 21st century...

The language of instruction is in English, although students have the option of taking some business classes in French every semester if their French is good enough. Students are strongly encouraged to take a French Language class, although it is not mandatory. There are classes in French for students at every level, including students who have never had French before or students who are already bilingual.
