PSU & La Rochelle Business Schools partner for unique opportunity

Updated:
PITTSBURG, KANSAS -

Pittsburg State business students will soon have an opportunity for a unique international education experience.

The Pittburg State Kelce College of Business recently reached a dual degree agreement with La Rochelle Business School in La Rochelle, France. The agreement gives PSU students the opportunity to earn both a master's degree in business administration from Pitt State and a master's degree in management from La Rochelle, ranked by The Financial Times as one of the top 80 business schools in Europe.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for our students to gain international business experience and earn a degree from two of the top business programs in the world,” said Linden Dalecki, associate professor at Pitt State and coordinator of the dual degree program. “We are very excited to work with La Rochelle on this program, and we thank them for being partners in this unique venture.”

To become eligible for the program, Pitt State students must complete 25 required Kelce MBA credits. Of those who are eligible, a maximum of three students will be chosen for the program each year.

Upon selection, the students will travel to France to complete a fall semester at La Rochelle. That is followed by a European internship, which is generally arranged by La Rochelle. Once complete, the students will be awarded degrees from both institutions.

Selection for the program is based on the applicants' grade point average and a 500-word essay describing how the program will benefit their careers and lives.

There is no French language requirement for the program, and all courses at La Rochelle are conducted in English.

"I am excited for our students to have such an interesting and possibly life-changing experience," said Paul Grimes, dean of the Kelce College of Business. "La Rochelle Business School is a fantastic institution of higher education, and we're thrilled to give our Kelce business students this opportunity."
