International Strategy - EM Strasbourg

An International Outlook: A Truly Strategic Pillar


Experience Refined Over the Years

In 1987, when the European student mobility program Erasmus was created, EM Strasbourg was one of the first schools in France to offer its students multiple opportunities abroad. Today, each student in Programme Grande École studies at one of our partner universities for a full academic year. This year abroad is a compulsory requirement for graduation. 
Over the years, we have developed a strong and extensive network of international university partners. The exchange agreements signed with European and international institutions have shaped our openness to the world and allow us to offer you a network of 200 partners in more than 50 countries.

In order to maintain and develop our distinctive university exchange policy, we now offer dual degree programs, personalized short programs, and Summer Schools to our partners.

EM Strasbourg's European Identity

Located in the heart of Europe and within walking distance of the European institutions, it seemed natural to us to offer our students unique learning experiences with real intercultural input. 

To strengthen our distinctive European character, in 2018 we launched CLUE, a set of courses  and learning activities with a European focus offered in all our programs of study.


CLUE stands for:

  • Cross-cultural skills 
  • Language excellence  
  • Uncommon activities  
  • European leadership


CLUE offers students the opportunity to discover and explore some of Europe's economic challenges in thematic conferences, while developing negotiation and leadership skills in simulation games held at the European Parliament. We encourage our students to improve their intercultural and language skills so that they can understand the workings of European institutions.
