Bachelor’s degree in economics and management

About the training

The objective of the bachelor’s degree program (double degree with Lumière Lyon 2 University) in economics and management is to provide students with extensive knowledge and command of the fundamentals of economics, management and statistics. At the same time, special emphasis is put on the acquisition of cross-cutting skills (languages, information and communication technologies) and on the definition and implementation of a professional project (individual support, compulsory internship). The pedagogical approach is adapted to the local environment and to the academic level of Cambodian students. It includes a first preparatory year (equivalent to the year 1 of the French program) followed by a second year devoted to the completion of semester 5 of the French program’s Year 3 and a third year corresponding to semester 6 of the French program’s Year 3. The teaching team is made up of visiting professors from the Lumière Lyon 2 University and RULE professors, Cambodian and international. The bachelor’s degree program offers two pathways:

  • An English-speaking pathway with all the teaching in English.
  • A bilingual French / English pathway with lectures in English and tutorials in French.

No language certificate required. The level of language (English and French) is assessed during the entrance exam.
