Bachelor’s degree in economics and management

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.

Graduates from the International Bachelor program are awarded two official Bachelor’s diplomas, respectively one from the University Lumiere Lyon 2 and one from RULE. The University of Lyon is one of the most prestigious institutions not only in France and Europe, but also in the world.

A PROFESSIONNALY-ORIENTED BACHELOR PROGRAM

RULE is one of the two Cambodian higher education institution members of the ASEAN Universities Network. Aiming to achieve a high quality of international standards, RULE has broadly expanded its international collaboration with some of the most prestigious institutions in management and business in Europe.

This bachelor’s degree offers the perfect background to get scholarships to follow a master’s or PhD’s program, from Erasmus Mundus, France, Sweden, USA, South Korea, Australia, Malaysia.

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.

A RENOWNED PARTNER UNIVERSITY

Lumière Lyon 2 University, a university of social sciences and humanities, has been strongly involved in academic cooperation with RULE since 1994, for training in law and economics. This cooperation primarily consists in carrying out teaching missions at RULE by academics from Lumière Lyon 2 University and secondly in hosting, in Lyon, Cambodian students, awardees or not, of Eiffel scholarships or scholarships from the French government.

The Bachelor program 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.
