Following an initiative by the Administration of the school, the Chinese authorities recognized the BBA program of The American Business School of Paris by accepting the “Title 1 International Manager”, registered with the RNCP, as being the equivalent of a Chinese master’s degree (decree of 8 December 2017, Official Gazette of 21 December 2017, code NSF 310, 312, 313).

This new Chinese recognition comes after the reconsideration of the BBA program of The American Business School of Paris by the French authorities in December 2017 to change the equivalency from “Title 2” to “Title 1”, therefore having the same level of a French masters M2 degree (decree of 12 May 2011 fixing the list of diplomas at least equivalent to the French master).

The American Business School of Paris, with its strong international academic relationships with more than 90 universities, already has good relations with Fudan University (Shanghai), Tongji University (Shanghai) and Beijing Institute for Economics and Management (Beijing).

Other partnerships are currently being discussed, including the transfer of Chinese students to obtain an American BBA and a French degree Title 1 at the American Business School of Paris.

Among our alumni, François Tran, Debnise Lam, Eduard Bellin and Antoine Haugel established their international careers in business development in China. Other French-Chinese alumni work in other countries around the world, such as Sisi Chen, Clement Chang, Cindy Dai, Fei Hao, Cindy Prouchandy, and others.

The objective of this recognition is to allow our graduates to work in China, to contribute to the economic development of the country, and promote economic, social, educational and cultural relationships between France and China, and between their country of origin and China.

As a reminder, the BBA program at The American Business School of Paris offers three specializations: International Marketing, International Finance and International Trade. A new minor specialization has recently been added: Olympic Games and Cross-cultural Management.

It should be noted that during semesters of exchange with our partner universities, students at ABSParis have the opportunity to enroll in a minor and integrate it into their curriculum at ABSParis.
