Academics Location
This program is specifically designed for business students who wish to complete their business program requirements, while simultaneously gaining French language and cultural skills. No prior French language knowledge is required, but it is strongly recommended that students undertake some French language study prior to study abroad. Students can enroll in French language courses while abroad in addition to their business courses. Business courses are taught in English by international faculty and count as equivalents of required or elective courses for Rider business majors and minors. A number of liberal arts courses are offered in English.
