Turn your dreams into reality

“ESSEC Business School and CentraleSupelec have joined forces to create an international Bachelor program in Artificial Intelligence, Data and Management Sciences. Information technologies, and in particular massive data processing and artificial intelligence, are a source of both opportunities and challenges for organizations and societies. It is essential that the young generation understands the dynamics of the current transitions, strongly affected by the social, environmental, and digital transformations of society, and be properly equipped to handle them.

The Bachelor in Artificial Intelligence, Data and Management Sciences program is hybrid and innovative. It combines the academic resources and educational expertise of two major schools, one of business, the other one of engineering, to allow students to build in-depth knowledge of models and scientific methods of data analysis, develop strong skills in mathematical modeling and computer science, and acquire a solid generalist base in the disciplines of management and administration.

At the end of the program, graduates will be able to start their own business or enter the job market in technical or managerial positions. They will also be able to deepen and specialize their knowledge by joining a prestigious Master's degree… and turn their dreams into reality!”

Combine the power of two campuses

Choosing the BSc in Artificial Intelligence, Data and Management Sciences means you will enjoy studying at up to two campuses. These are around Paris, France. You are sure to pursue your studies in a spacious, conducive environment for you to reach your highest potential.

At just 35 minutes from the bustling business district La Défense, stands the iconic ESSEC France Campus. Located in the second largest student area around Paris and housing over 27,000 students, the France campus provides everything you need to develop and enjoy your academic career to the fullest.

The campus is a very modern home to our 4000 students: they use the latest technologies in our Knowledge Labs, enjoy a nice meal together in the restaurant The Daily Market, and of course relax and socialize in the Foy’s bar. Our students are very diverse and active: there are over 100 student associations you can join.

The monthly living expenses are approximately 1000 € covering housing, food, etc.

Most importantly, however, next to great facilities and modern infrastructures, the ESSEC France campus is renowned for the power of its programs. Expect nothing short of top-of-the-bill educational programs provided by the world’s best professors. Your development won’t stop at the classroom door either: 1500 managers yearly come and recruit our students during events. Next to that, at the ESSEC France campus, we have our very own two incubators at the heart of our entrepreneurial ecosystem. In other words: you can directly put your most creative and innovative ideas to the test, do internships and apprenticeships at world-changing companies in France, while immersed in the rich French culture (and pick up French, while you’re at it…!)


Choose the ESSEC France Campus, if:

You are attracted to the rich French culture and the French language;

You want to enjoy the strongly established ties to the industry and business community, like no other school in France can provide;

You enjoy a melting pot of cultures, languages, and diversity in the classroom;

You look forward to learning from and working with some of science and business’ finest;

You look forward to - next to studying - enjoying the plethora of wonderful experiences Paris has to offer.




In September 2017, CentraleSupélec opened the doors to its brand new Saclay campus, in Gif-sur-Yvette: 105,000m2 of excellence and innovation comprising 4 buildings, of which two are completely new. This will facilitate exchange and interdisciplinarity.

Significant joint equipment (student accommodation, a learning center, library, gym, sports courts, etc.) will be added to this which, along with ENS Paris-Saclay and Paris-Sud University, will ultimately make up the largest district of the Saclay Plateau: the Moulon district. Located 25 km south of Paris, it will attract more than 30,000 people, of which 8,000 students and scientific equipment employees from both public and private sectors. 

On this campus, we bring over 2,000 students from 60 countries together. They all manage their cultural, social, and even technological activities there. Activities such as Gala, Central Business Forum, Centrale 7, and so on. Doing sports and relaxing is also essential for many Centralers’: our campus houses gyms, restaurants, collaborative workspaces, sports rooms, and many other facilities. Studying here, you can enjoy an intense and convivial student life!
