Foreign teaching methods are a constant source of inspiration and innovation for IESA, and we pay particular attention to the pedagogical methods and initiatives of our partner institutions.  

Partner universities

Purchase College, New York State, USA
Purchase College is part of the SUNY (State University of New York) network. While Purchase is a small village, Purchase College has a thriving campus located circa 50km from Manhattan, which offers many opportunities to go to New York City and visit its world-known museums. IESA students can join Purchase’s School of Art+Design and its Arts Management program. 


PSB  Paris School of Business, Paris, France
The Paris School of Business, situated in the heart of France’s capital city, offers students from around the world the opportunity to study international business and management in France.  Courses are taught entirely in English by native-English professionals and experts.  PSB has been a partner of IESA through the MSc in Arts & Cultural Management since 2011.


La Sorbonne, Paris, France
A privately-run French-as-a-foreign-language school within the Sorbonne, the French Language and Civilization program (CCFS) at the Sorbonne teaches foreign students grammar, phonetics, and written and oral expression. Practical courses for all levels allow students to perfect their French, regardless of their age, academic background or origin.  The CCFS has been a partner of IESA, through their jointly-run Preparatory Year, since 2010.
