In France, universities are divided into smaller entities which group the faculties of certain areas of study. The Institut d'Administration des Entreprises de Lille is primarily a business-focused campus and offers many business classes in English. The institution is part of the University of Lille, which was founded in 1562 by the Spanish and became French in 1667. It became established in the heart of Lille in 1854, then in 1964 it moved to its current site in Villeneuve d'Ascq (15 minutes away from the city). The entire University of Lille 1 has a teaching and research staff of 1,000 and a student population of roughly 23,000, though IAE houses a smaller subset of this population.  An emphasis is placed on learning how to a look at things from a different perspective, both academically and socially. A French language course is offered alongside regular academic content courses, especially those in business, taught in English.

Exchange students will become part of a particularly cosmopolitan French population situated less than 300 kilometers from five European countries. There are over 60 clubs and societies on the university campus. Thanks to these associations, you can have contact with other French students.

The University of Lille I is situated in the north of France, within easy access of the ports of France and the main motor way system which runs through Europe.  The university is located in Lille, France, a city of around 1 million. It is located less than 150 miles from 5 different European cities: Brussels, Paris, and London etc. Lille is the fourth largest city in France, and is located in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region, which is the youngest of all the French regions. It is known as an industrial city, and played a significant role in the 1st and 2nd Industrial Revolutions. France has the 4th largest industrial economy, and is about the size of Texas.
