AIB Management and Business School: French Business School launches India admissions office

AIB Management and Business School, a business school located in Lyon, France has recently started their India admissions office. Their core programs for international students include BBA and MBA. The India office is aimed at supporting students that are looking to study in France. The degrees awarded by AIB Management and Business School are RNCP certified, meaning the students can stay back in France for 2 years after graduating. Students are also eligible for a 5 years Alumni Visa.

If we can summarize the recent visit to India by French Foreign Minister Catherine Colonna, it is to use educational exchanges to strengthen the strategic ties between France and India. “We want 20,000 Indian students in France by 2025”, she said while calling the plan “very ambitious”. Very recently when the French President Mr.Macron visited India as the chief guest of Indian Republic Day, he was very vocal in his country’s plan to achieve the 30,000 student target by 2030.

Improving France-India strategic relationship through education will be top priority for both Modi and Macron Administration’s foreign policy. Educational partnerships will play an increasingly important role in the people to people exchange between both the countries.

The French Government provides a lot of attractive incentives for Indian students looking to Choose France including the 2 years stay back option, Rental Subsidy for students, 5 year Alumni Visa, etc. The mandatory internship model, prevalent in most of France’s world class business schools, is very attractive for Indian Students, which gets the students ready to join a diverse workforce as soon as they graduate with a top class degree that is recognized worldwide, especially with the brand value it carries.

Migration of students from India to France is being enhanced through visa policies, including ease of receiving French student visas for Indians, simplifying the Campus France Process etc.
