Founded in 1974, the PSB Paris School of Business (formerly ESG MS) is an elite European Grande École management school that combines academic excellence, international awareness, and professional experience. The school’s social responsibility policy revolves around three priority objectives:

  • To incorporate the notions of manager awareness and responsibility in both academic activities and actions carried out by the student associations, and to build partnerships with businesses and associations.
  • To pursue the social awareness policy implemented by the school as well as its commitment against all forms of discrimination.
  • To develop environmental and social management actions through our institutional and research policies.

With this in mind, PSB has sought to create an environment where a diverse, global student body can live and learn together. With approximately 75 different nationalities converging on its campus, PSB’s student population is comprised of 20% international students, with 615 academic exchange students each year.

PLEASE NOTE: Students who study abroad on Global Exchange programs should prepare for a highly independent and immersive experience. You will take courses with host university faculty and be held to the same academic policies and standards as local students. Academic support will vary across programs and often differs from the support you receive at Loyola. While the coursework and support may be different than what you are used to in the U.S., the grades you receive abroad will still factor into your LUC GPA. Check out our policies page for more information on academics.

Students can use the school’s exclusive platform to find an apartment or roommate in France and internationally, throughout their studies. The private platform centralizes all housing opportunities available for students including private landlords, real estate agencies and private student residences offers.

All students have free access to the housing platform, so whether they are looking for accommodation in Paris for the duration of the studies, or in another country while they do their internship, the PSB housing platform is the solution for them.
