 Curriculum & Coursework

 
 unf student

 

Students participating in the KEDGE/UNF double degree program earn one degree from UNF and one degree from KEDGE.  While many of the courses taken in the U.S. and France count toward both degrees, some apply only to the UNF degree or only to the KEDGE degree.  If a student chooses not to complete the additional KEDGE coursework, the student may still graduate from UNF, earning only the UNF BBA with a major in International Business.  In this case, the student would earn only one degree and would not earn the double degree concentration.

The Student Experience     

 mansenie photo by Jennifer Grissom

Mansenie Joseph | Graduated August 2017

 

The following is an excerpt from the Fall 2017 UNF Journal by Isabel Pease.

For Mansenie Joseph, there’s nothing like traveling to a new place. “There is a rush when you step off the airplane in another country,” Joseph said. “I love the excitement.”  The Haitian-born Osprey knows the feeling well having experienced 16 countries over the past two years while studying abroad in France. 

 

Joseph said one of the greatest benefits of studying overseas was working with so many people from different cultures and backgrounds. “KEDGE has students from all over the world,” she said. “I think I have a good handle on how to communicate and work with all kinds of people now.”  

 

During her internship, Joseph worked in logistics for a Parisian company that produces containers for perfumes and luxury brands. She enjoyed supply chain management and is considering a career in logistics once she receives her MBA. When the time comes for Joseph to apply for jobs, one thing is certain. Her global education will definitely be a plus.  Read more of Mansenie's story.
