A Word from the Dean

CEFAM provides a French American business education leading to internationally recognized degrees and global careers.

Over 30 years’ Experience in Education in the United States

CEFAM (Centre d’Etudes Franco-Américain de Management) was founded in 1986 as a response to the growing internationalization of markets and companies.

The school prepares its students for careers in management through:

  • The content of its programs
  • Its academic organization, in association with several renowned American universities

1 Program for 2 Degrees

Two primary factors contributed to establishing CEFAM’s focus:

1/ Earning dual degrees simultaneously by spending part of the program in France before continuing in one of CEFAM’s affiliated universities :

  • A Level 7 French degree from CEFAM, certified by the French government, and recognized in France and throughout Europe
  • An American Bachelor of Business administration, conferred by one of CEFAM’s partner institutions in the USA, all AACSB accredited (gold standard for business schools)

2/ Teaching the entire program in English, starting in the first year, thanks to an international faculty

Studying in the United States

CEFAM is the only school that allows all of its students to study in the United States and obtain a degree from a prestigious, AACSB accredited, American university.

In the United-States, CEFAM students are registered for classes in the partner university and acquire independence, ease, and responsibility.

CEFAM: Your Partner in Success

CEFAM’s faculty and staff have one ambition – the academic, professional, and personal success of all their students.

Our graduates are employed in high level positions throughout the world.

CEFAM affirms its secular nature by accepting individuals from all faiths, as well as those who do not follow a particular faith, and does not abide discrimination of any kind based on gender, nationality, or its students’ ethnicity.
