An agreement inked between the governments of India and France on the 10th of March, 2018 during the India-France Knowledge Summit was the first intergovernmental agreement that India has entered into. As per the agreement of Mutual Recognition of Academic Qualifications signed between the 2 countries, educational qualifications from India will be recognized by the French Govt. and vice versa. This agreement will benefit the students of both the countries who wish to study in the partner country. With supporting initiatives, the French Government is committed to fostering a positive trend and plans to welcome 10.000 Indian students by the end of the year 2020.
Known as the Fashion Capital of the World, France is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. IMM provides the opportunity to their business school students to complete their post-graduate program in France, where the students experience different business situations, enhance their management skills and experience cultural diversity. France is the 3rd most preferred location for higher studies in the world.
The students get to experience another side of the world when they come for a French student exchange program. Living the student life in a city that is famous for landmarks like the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, and the Arc De Triomphe is not the same as visiting it for a vacation. Here you will always learn something new between regular classes, organized activities and excursions, and other free time. Let us now look at some of the common areas that every student and their parents will have questions related to.
Affiliation of the Partner French Business School
Our partner business school is affiliated and recognized by the French Govt.
There are a lot of things that are different between the 2 cultures. IMM organizes a formal session for all students where they are given all the information with respect to the culture of the country and other things in that country. Every question from the students and their parents is addressed to give a crystal clear picture.
The college applies for a visa for all the students in the French embassy. The information about the same is then passed to the students to ensure that everyone has a complete set of required documents and awareness about the proceedings of the tour overseas.
All the travel expenditure will be covered by the college and flight bookings will be done accordingly to ensure a hassle-free to and fro travel
Though it’s an ideal situation if you are fluent in French, knowing just enough to converse can take you through since the French people also know English. IMM ensures that every student becomes fluent in the French language to ensure maximum productivity during the time spent in France.
The students going to the partner business school in France don’t have to worry about the accommodation and other arrangements since everything will be taken care of by IMM.
All the food arrangements will be taken care of by IMM. You will not have to either cook or order food from outside while you are on watch. The students are however free to order food from outside the campus if they wish to do so. The cost for the same will have to be borne by the student ordering from outside.
Are you a vegetarian and are hearing rumors about the unavailability of good vegetarian food in France? Let us put those rumors to rest. We assure you that vegetarian food is available in lots of different varieties to ensure the taste glands of vegetarians also get to savor some of France and take some delicious recipes back home.
You also won’t have to overpack since the weather in France stays mild, which is neither too hot nor too cold throughout the year. The average temperature remains between 15 to 25-degree Celsius and between 8 to 3 degrees in winters.
We understand that it’s not just the studies that are important for the overall development of a good leader but also other activities that enhance your thinking capabilities and improve teamwork. Along with studies the school also offers sports and other extracurricular activities that offer a wide range of experience to the students. Various clubs and societies like music, drama, science, and literary societies along with outdoor education, leisure activities, visit to concerts and theatres, along with many other places that are relevant to the course studies like art galleries, scientific companies, historical sites, museums, and religious centers will all be a part of the stay in this beautiful country.
