Some of the Organizations and Clubs at our American School
The American Business School of Paris encourages its students to participate in community-based activities proposed within the IGS Group.
It’s an opportunity for students to boost their student life participation on the Parodi campus. Community life and athletics are an integral part of ABSParis’s DNA.
In addition, these organizations make it possible for students to experience enriching activities, as well as develop their leadership and organizational talents.
BDE ABS Paris
The CIS - Council of International Students - gathers ABSParis students from different cultures to organize events together (Valentine's Day, Christmas dinner, Cultural Day, integration parties, etc.). These events facilitate the integration of students, especially international students, create a strong School Spirit and also allow the student organizers to develop their organizational and leadership skills.
The Communication Team is a team of up to 15 students from all ABSParis programs who act as ambassadors for the school during JPOs, SPOs, fairs, and school visits. Like the CIS, these missions allow them to develop skills and reinforce the School Spirit.
