While the language of teaching at the campus is French, you will also pick up on English and Arabic: three of the world’s top languages that will provide you access to very profitable markets.

The ESSEC Atlantic-Africa campus can house approximately 80 students, in integrated residences. That is to say, the student houses are close to the classrooms.
