Toulouse, France
Toulouse is located in southwest France, and is home to 1.13 million inhabitants. Toulouse has the second largest student population in France (120,000 students) after Paris. A fast paced metropolis, Toulouse has been one of the centers of European aerospace industry, and hosts the headquarters of Airbus. Other industries in Toulouse include electronics, information technology and biotechnology. It is an ideal location to explore French culture and study management.
Originally housed in a 15th century monastery located in the old town centre, the school’s current premises include a downtown campus and an ultra-modern "electronic" campus located on the perimeter of the city. The downtown campus, a blend of aesthetic architectural harmony and functional excellence, is located at the heart of the business complex near the centre of metropolitan Toulouse.
Fall semester: late August – December
Spring semester: early January– late April
Students must:
  • be enrolled as an SJSU student for one semester prior to departure, or be a California community college student eligible to enter SJSU by the semester of departure
  • have completed lower division requirements for your intended field of study.  TBS requires that incoming students have a minimum of 60 ECTS validated in Business/Management studies, which equates to 30 SJSU units. 
  • have Sophomore, Junior or Senior standing by the semester of departure
  • have a cumulative GPA of 2.75 or higher
  • There is no language prerequisite, but students are strongly encouraged to take beginning French prior to participation in the program

Groupe ESC Toulouse is one of Europe's leading integrated management schools, with over 100 international partners spread all around the world. TBS has won international recognition through its triple accreditation: EQUIS, AACSB, AMBA. Exchange students are able to take courses in:
  • Management Control, Accounting and Auditing
  • Economics-Finance and Law
  • Industrial Organization, Logistics and Technology
  • Human Resource Management
  • Information Management
  • Marketing Strategy
While TBS offers diverse coursework, their curriculum does not match well with SJSU business degree requirements; this means that most TBS classes transfer as elective credit.  Only students with the academic flexibility to take the majority of their classes abroad as electives are recommended to apply to TBS. 
There is no on-campus housing option, but arranging private housing is assisted by Toulouse Business School. Details of housing options and application forms are provided to students by TBS after acceptance.
