“I had the most amazing experience in Lyon studying with CEFAM. The professors were very knowledgeable in their fields and I learned a lot in just 7 weeks. The CEFAM faculty were very welcoming and helped ease the transition into a new culture. The knowledge I learned both in and out of the classroom is invaluable and I am so glad I was able to have this experience”. Nicole B. from Northeastern Univerity

“I really enjoyed the time I spent in Lyon. I love CEFAM and the city. CEFAM has some very good professors and staff members also helped us a lot when we stayed in Lyon and travelled to Paris. It’s a fantastic experience for me. If I have another chance to study abroad, I will absolutely choose CEFAM again”. Xianchiao L. from Northeastern University

“The CEFAM team did a wonderful job and our time there was well structured.  I appreciate all of the insight that we gained about Lyon”. Student from Rider University

We felt so at ease knowing what capable hands we were in from the moment we stepped off the plane to the moment we left.  The program you set up for us was informative, entertaining, educational, delicious and fun – a difficult balance to strike! Our students left the city with valuable insights of the city’s catchy marketing strategies, as well as an appreciation of the French wine industry and the struggles an individual vintner has in making a profitable business, the importance of top quality food and a positive impression of France beyond Paris”. Caitlin Hurley, Associate Dean at Temple University Rome

The company visits were very informative and it was interesting to see how corporations operate in different environmental settings”. Students from Northeastern University

Great program.  Great opportunity to learn more about real companies, enhancing practicality of the program”. Students from Northeastern University

I thought the corporate visits were very interesting.  I liked how we got to visit completely different companies.  It was very insightful and we were provided with a lot of information of every company, also tied in with what we learned in class”. Students from Northeastern University

I thought the activities were excellent, with the time available the different trips gave a nice variety of aspects and experiences in a foreign country”. Students from Northeastern University

I thought all of the activities were interesting and well-planned.  I felt each one helped open my eyes to a different aspect of life in France”. Students from Northeastern University
