For Business Students, Wentworth Connects with Paris School
May 24, 2019
Wentworth's Department of Management has signed a memorandum of understanding with European Business School (EBS) Paris, a leading business school in France, according to Len Delosh, chair of the Department of Management.
The partnership is focused on business education, which at Wentworth is housed in the College of Arts and Sciences. The plan, says Delosh, is to have up to four Wentworth students per quarter attend classes at EBS and for four of EBS’ students to come and study at Wentworth. In addition, Assistant Professor Santiago Umaschi has been invited to teach MBAs at EBS for one week in October, and the two schools are exploring other possibilities for collaboration.
The exchange program is open to Wentworth students who are taking courses in the Department of Management. Participants would not incur additional enrollment fees in opting to attend EBS, according to Delosh, who said the department will be contacting business students at Wentworth with additional information about the new opportunity.
Opened in 1967 in the heart of Paris, EBS is an international institution with campuses in London, Geneva and San Francisco. As the first international business school founded in France, EBS has had, “a pioneering influence on the European model of education.”
Wentworth is joining good company by connecting with EBS. The school says it has more than 130 partner universities in 30 countries, such as London School of Economics, McGill University, University of California, San Diego, and University of New South Wales.
