6. Number one for sandwich courses in France
1st Management Grande Ecole for sandwich courses according to Le Parisien in 2012, Montpellier Business School
has established a team that will help the intern to find work, complete their contract and support them throughout their course. The company will pay all or part of the tuition fees and will pay them a salary. They attend one week of classes on campus and three weeks with the business. The interns are supported by a remote training centre with an interactive platform, helping them to continue their studies with e-learning courses during the time they spend with the company. A sandwich course helps candidates to acquire professional
experience and in the majority of cases leads to a job offer even before they obtain their qualification. http://www.montpellier-bs.com/international/pdf/brochure-master-en.pdf
