Why Choose Paris?

Paris is an international city. At AUP, you’ll be exposed to a wide variety of experiences and perspectives in a cosmopolitan capital of business and culture. Paris is also a city of opportunity: it’s home to global companies, renowned museums and international organizations. You’ll engage in personal and professional development as part of daily life. 

AUP emphasizes engaged scholarship, encouraging you to apply your studies in class to the changing world around you. Art historians find art and architecture out on the street as much as in museums. Communications majors volunteer with social justice organizations, engaging directly with Parisian communities. Management students take internships at multinational companies as much as with innovative startups. No matter your major, you’ll develop a personal pathway through higher education that makes the most of the varied perspectives and unique experiences on offer in the City of Light.
