Now known as INSEEC Alpes Savoie, the school in the Savoy region of France
extends the network of INSEEC Group campuses with another elite “grand école”
school, which have selective admissions criteria in the French higher
education system. Located in Chambéry, France – east of Lyon and south of
Geneva, Switzerland –INSEEC Alpes Savoie complements INSEEC’s current grand
école schools in Paris and Bordeaux.

As a result of the new association, students attending INSEEC Alpes Savoie
will have access to courses offered by the INSEEC Group in Paris, Bordeaux,
Lyon, Monaco, London and Chicago. The business-focused programs of INSEEC
include master’s degrees in business administration, concentrations in
marketing research, luxury marketing, communications, advertising, tourism,
and food and wine marketing. With its location serving the tourism industry in
the Alps, INSEEC Alpes Savoie boasts strong programs in sports marketing and
foreign languages.

“The INSEEC Alpes Savoie campus provides an excellent complement to the INSEEC
Group of schools, strengthening the network with a campus at European
geographic crossroads of France, Germany, Switzerland and Italy,” said
Catherine Lespine, General Manager of Career Education’s Paris-based INSEEC
Group of schools.

In May 2012, the INSEEC Group expanded its executive education curricula with
the acquisition of the corporate training firm Luxury Attitude, which
specializes in service and customer relations training for premium and luxury
companies. That complements those offered in the Luxury Business Division and
the specialized programs already developed by the International University of
Monaco (IUM), which was acquired by Career Education in 2010.

Since 1975, the INSEEC Group has been developing innovative higher education
programs, from bachelor to doctoral degrees, in a wide range of areas. Its
commitment has been to design programs adapted to ease access to the job
market for its alumni.
