This programme has been designed to provide students with management fundamentals as well as the linguistic and technical competencies needed to enroll on Bachelor or Master programmes at either La Rochelle Education Group or at the ISC Paris Business School, our partner for the programme.
The Business Foundation Programme (BFP) has been developed to enable you
