What do some of our former and current students think about the MIB ?
"I believe studying in one of the top ten Grande École in a program provided 100% in English, having course mates and professors from 14 different nationalities, living in an environment where I can practice conversing in French and appreciate the charm of the French way of life, is the perfect combination of a rewarding and personal enriching experience for me during my sabbatical year."

"My Engineering background and prior work experience with Accenture, together with my dreams of pursuing an International career, led me to my decision to enroll in IÉSEG MIB. Now, when I work for the Global HQ’s of a Fortune 500 company, managing operations across 20+ countries, I could not ask for anything more! Every single moment and every penny I invested in IÉSEG was worth it! To me, IÉSEG is not just a school, brand, or culture, it is an Identity."

"I believe that it is not the destination but the process, the journey, in reaching the destination that matters the most! MIB is, sincerely speaking; a cherry on the cake of my journey to become a successful individual and a professional! I consider this program one of the best grooming sessions I have had throughout my student life, as it personifies the need to do « beyond ». This course not only provides but demands us students to step in to pursue excellence. My intention to join this course accompanied the pure excitement of being one of the scholarship holders, being in another continent, another country with students from various nationalities."
