Business School launches Paris Placement Program
25 Mar 2013
The University of Sydney Business School has expanded its ground breaking Industry Placement Program, following the formation of a partnership with leading French university Sciences Po. The Paris Placement Program will allow students to work and study in Paris for six weeks, from mid-June to the end of July.
"Students taking part in the Paris Placement Program will work during the day, in either a public or private sector organisation," said Dr Leanne Piggott, Director of the Business Programs Unit at the Business School. "For the first four weeks of the placement, students will also study four nights a week at Sciences Po (including French language), one of France's top universities, located in the heart of Paris."
"Students who participate in the program will receive credit towards their degree for both the Science Po subject they complete, and the industry placement they undertake," Dr Piggott continued.
"This is a tremendous opportunity for Business School students to broaden their horizons, and experience work and study in Europe," said Associate Professor Philip Seltsikas, Associate Dean (Undergraduate) of the Business School.
"We take enormous pride in our Industry Placement Programs, and consider the depth they add to a degree from the Business School to be a hallmark of the quality of education the Business School delivers," Associate Professor Seltsikas said.
Sciences Po occupies seven campuses in the heart of Paris. Founded in 1872, its core teaching focuses are law, economics, history, political science and sociology. Sciences Po has more than 10,000 students, from more than 130 different countries, and offers courses in a range of languages. For more information, please visit the Sciences Po website.
The Paris Placement program joins international placement opportunities in the US and China, as well as several domestic and regional programs. For more information, please visit the Industry Placement Program website.
