Paris Management Internship Program

Boston University, in conjunction with the University of Paris IX-Dauphine, offers a one-semester Paris Management Internship Program. The program consists of three courses taken at Dauphine, plus an academic internship (which will most likely fulfill a liberal arts level B requirement).

The BU Paris Center, including administrative offices and classrooms, is located in the fifteenth arrondissement, within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower.

Program Curriculum

Students are enrolled at the University of Paris IX-Dauphine and have access to Dauphine facilities and services. Upon successful completion of the program, students earn 16 Boston University credits. Students receive BU School of Management credit for management courses taken in this program.

Track I is designed for students who have completed through fourth- or fifth-semester French. It includes a French language course, the internship course, and two electives. The internship placement and course will be conducted in French. All other coursework must be taken in English.

Track II is designed for more advanced students who have completed through six or more semesters of college-level French. Track II includes the internship course, a course on France or Europe, and two elective courses. The internship placement and course will be conducted in French. Students must take at least one of their elective courses in French.
