Student Reviews

Study at ENAC, France
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

The professors at the university are absolutely professional and some of them are professionals retired from great companies. Thus, we got to learn more than just lectures. The study tools are very up-to-date as I would not expect to see the business strategy of a company that just made a big move a week ago in my textbook. My school believes in diversity and inclusion...

Stay motivated and never loose hope.

The Experience I had is very positive in terms of education and the faculty are experienced and supportive, from multinational companies and backgrounds. I must say one of the best universities for foreign students.
