Promoting France – Article Grandes Ecoles

Share this post:

I read the IHT (Jan 26 2007) advertised section promoting “doing business in France.” The following excerpt caught my attention about the notoriety of the Grandes Ecoles:

“Grands Ecoles: Great schools leading to great jobs… Ms. XXX arrived at the University of Texas at Austin two weeks ago as an exchange student from Paris. To her surprise, few people had heard of the elite grandes écoles in the French higher education system and no one knew … ESCP-EAP…”

A first thought was what on earth is the best school doing an exchange with UT. Secondly, most people in Austin may not know where Paris, France is, much less ESCP. Finally, the student in question wants an international career… wonder why.
