Internships with an international dimension

Due to its vocation, the ESCE favors internships abroad.

All internships must have an international dimension, even those carried out in France.
It is fundamental to understand and apprehend the different practices, ways of thinking and organizations depending on the country.

These courses are also an excellent lever for progressing in languages and acquiring a very specific vocabulary.
Thus 90% of internships at ESCE are in a language other than French.
