Elon University is launching a dual-degree program in partnership with NEOMA Business School in Rouen, France! In one year, earn both the M.S. in Business Analytics from Elon and MSc in Business Analytics, Grade de Master (Recognition by the Ministry of Higher Education & Research) from NEOMA BS.

Increase your cross-cultural competency and understanding of global business as you live and study in two countries in one year. Elon students will spend the first half of the MSBA program taking classes at Elon and the last half taking classes at NEOMA BS’ Rouen campus. While abroad, classes will be delivered in English and participating Elon students do not have to pay additional tuition and academic fees to NEOMA BS.
