ABS Header

Since its inception, the American Business School Paris has attracted students to Paris from all around the world and has evolved from a uniquely Franco-American vision to a completely global approach to business education. Students interested in a diverse educational experience will find it by coming to the American Business School Paris where they are immediately immersed in an international setting. More than 50% of the students come from outside France and represent close to 65 nationalities. The campus is home to 10 schools and over 3,000 students. At the American Business School Paris, students learn to understand cultural and behavioral differences from the first day in class.

The American Business School Paris is based in one of the most famous cities in the world: Paris. The modern campus is centrally located on the Parodi Campus of IGS (Institut de Gestion Sociale) near the picturesque Canal St. Martin. Paris is a city to discover. Students see the sights, visit the museums - they're all part of the experience. You can also jump on the metro or a bus and get off at a place you've never heard of, wander through a quartier where French mixes with Arabic or Vietnamese, poke your head into mysterious shops, have lunch in a local restaurant, or just perch on a cafe terrace and let yourself fall in love with your very own Paris.
