Renewal of our accreditation by UFA for our partnership with Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences!
The accreditation by the Franco-German University is renewed with Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences for 4 years
Since the academic year 2005-2006, South Champagne Business School has developed a dual degree with Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences. Since the same date, this Franco-German course has been supported by the Franco-German University (UFA). In 2019, we are delighted to announce that the course has been re-accredited for 4 years!
What is the BBA Franco-German track from SCBS?
For students who choose this track, years 2, 3 and 4 of the BBA are completely different from the standard track. In year 2, instead of a semester of classes in France and a work placement abroad, students on the Franco-German track follow a semester of classes in France then a semester of classes in Germany.
Year 3 of the course is 100% in Germany: a 5-month work placement and a semester of classes. Alongside students on the standard track, there are two semesters abroad in a partner university.
Finally, for students on the Franco-German track, the final year of the BBA is a 12-month work placement in a company. This year is divided into several periods of classes, whereas our students on the standard track have one semester of classes in France then a work placement abroad.
At the end of the course, the students obtain:
- A dual degree: a French degree and a German degree, both recognised by the Franco-German University (UFA);
- A certificate from the UFA.
What does the BBA Franco-German track from SCBS give you?
This track makes our students’ CVs stand out. It allows them to develop very good linguistic expertise in German and also to gain German-speaking business experience and increase their visibility in the German labour market. The course is an integral part of our International BBA (postgraduate – 4 years). In fact, like all the tracks on offer, it also enables our students to improve their ability to adapt and work in a multicultural context!

Currently, this grant is 300 euros per month!
