Discover three major European cities in just three weeks!

ESME Sudria’s main campuses are located in Paris, one of the world’s most dynamic cities for students. Approximately two million people live in Paris itself, and the Paris metro area has a population of over 12 million, making it one of Europe’s largest urban zones. With more than 40 collaborative labs and 3 000 startups, Paris is also a key-player in the world tech startup major league.

During the program, students will spend two weeks in Paris and one week on our Lille campus.

Lille is the fourth-biggest city in France. At the crossroads of Europe and with a strong startup ecosystem, Lille is also a metropolitan and international platform for innovation and new technologies. As Lille is really close to the Belgium border, students will also have the opportunity to visit Brussels which is the capital of Belgium!
