SCBS – South Champagne Business School is a student-friendly and community-focused institution of higher learning. Institutions are defined by their people, and one could say the people here were born to challenge “business as usual.”
The serene, intimate campus is situated in the city of Troyes, at a reasonable distance from Paris. With 1 900 students studying management, design and tourism, we’ve learned that we’re better together. We do more when we work across backgrounds, skills and perspectives. We believe success can only happen when we expand opportunity and demand excellence. We believe innovation comes from the meeting of diverse viewpoints.
SCBS aspires to be a vital community of students, academics, researchers, staff and alumni working together in a spirit of innovation and enterprise for a better world.”
Dounya Gharbage, Head Of International Affairs
