CEFAM (Centre d’Etudes Franco-Américain de Management) was founded in 1986 to respond to the growing internationalization of markets and companies. The school prepares its students for careers in management not only through the content of its programs, but also through its academic organization, in association with several renowned American universities.
Two main choices contributed to establishing CEFAM’s primary focus:
Students spending part of the program in France before continuing at an undergraduate (BBA) and/or graduate (MBA) level in one of CEFAM’s affiliated universities, while simultaneously earning two degrees:
– One French, the CEFAM degree, recognized in France and in Europe
– The other American, conferred by a prestigious, AACSB accredited
Using English as the language of instruction for the entire program, starting in the first year, thanks to an international faculty.
Still today, CEFAM remains the only school that allows all of its students to study in the United States and obtain a degree from a prestigious American university. During their year in the United States, CEFAM students acquire independence, ease, and responsibility.
Considering CEFAM to be an American school in France because English is used in the classroom and its programs are based on an “Anglo-Saxon” format would be an oversimplification, at best. Its mission spreads over the four corners of the world.
CEFAM’s faculty and staff have one ambition – the academic, professional, and personal success of all their students. Our graduates are employed in high level positions throughout the world.
CEFAM clearly affirms its secular nature by accepting individuals from all faiths, as well as those who do not follow a particular faith, and does not abide discrimination of any kind based on gender, nationality, or student ethnicity.
