Faculty Led Programs

Customized study programs

With CEFAM in Lyon, France, universities can develop customized, short-term programs in any field of study, offering them the chance to build a Faculty-Led or Faculty-Led blended experience. Partners can integrate seminars, lectures, corporate visits, and cultural activities, among other options, into their courses. Because Lyon is a center of gastronomy, history, tourism, and commerce, CEFAM is in a prime location to build an itinerary for a wide range of experiences.

CEFAM collaborates with universities and other groups, working within your budget and timeframe to put together an effective, personalized experience. For the Faculty-led blended option, the many General Education courses in its curriculum allow CEFAM to cater to diverse academic programs, in addition to its Business-focused curriculum.
