Each year, a select number of Smith Commerce students will be selected to study in France and earn two prestigious undergraduate degrees: a Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) from Smith School of Business and a Global Bachelor of Business Administration (GBBA) at ESSEC Business School.

An immersive cultural experience, access to expanded career resources and networks, and a global business curriculum are just some of the benefits that will help students learn to adapt to the rapidly changing global business landscape.

“In Asia, there are several fast-growing industries looking for young, internationally minded business talent. While Smith offers strong career coaching that led to full-time offers in established Canadian companies that promised stability, being in China allowed me to explore a different set of problems relevant to a population of over 1.4 billion. This deep immersion allowed me to build meaningful connections with industry leaders and led me to a high-impact and high-visibility role on this side of the world. To others considering this program, I would highly recommend being open-minded and prepared to have your assumptions challenged. There are at least two sides to every story, and hearing another will only serve to benefit your global worldview. We learn about cross-cultural communications in class, but it does not compare to experiencing it first-hand.”
