Euloge, Graduating class 2004,Temple University
I mainly joined CEFAM for its curriculum and the background of its faculty. In fact, after graduating from high school, I was looking
forward to applying to US universities when I came across a CEFAM brochure.
CEFAM provided me with the possibility to begin an American business education from Lyon, France with the option of transferring
to one of its associate US universities to complete my bachelor degree.
In Lyon, CEFAM`s highly experienced American and foreign faculty gave me the guarantee of a great internationally minded education.
Faculty experience was very important to me because our professors were able to share with us the real life examples they had experienced.
These interactions definitely developed and increased our interest in these topics.
CEFAM conditioned us to act, think, and work the American way, but I only really understood the scope of that philosophy once I
transferred to Temple University in Philadelphia.
Undeniably, CEFAM gave us all the tools we needed to adapt and evolve in the US society, no matter what city we picked. Once in
class, I noticed that most of us “Cefamiens” quickly adapted to the American teaching methods because they were clearly identical to
those we had experienced at CEFAM.
Lyon is a very modern and dynamic city that gives students everything they need to succeed academically and personally.
To put it in a nutshell, I would say that CEFAM’s location, curriculum, faculty, and strong associations with top American universities give CEFAM a clear advantage over its local or national competitors. CEFAM’s curriculum enabled me to earn a double degree, a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) in the US and a BAC + 5 in the
Finally, obtaining a double degree enables one to pursue an education or career in France or in the US. I chose to pursue a Master degree in the US and to ultimately work in pricing for a multinational company in Canada.
