This is my first ever post to the Forum so any information/advice is greatly appreciated ☺
OK, so…I am currently a US citizen, and I am interested in applying for a grad school program in Paris. It’s a one-year MBA program in my field, and I really think it will help me achieve my professional and personal goals and a spot on the proverbial corporate ladder (yikes!). It’s unique and just what I need to be competitive in the workplace.
I have not applied just yet but have been in talks with Admissions who pretty much said that I would be accepted based on my professional and academic history. The only issue is this: the program does not offer scholarships. As mentioned, it’s only a one-year program, and the costs are not prohibitively high, but I would like to know if any of you have information about programs that I can apply for to help manage the costs…scholarships, grants, etc. I am basically just starting my research now and thought I would start here. Because it’s a Parisian school and I am a US citizen, I am not entirely sure where to look.
I have some money saved up but between schooling and personal expenses for 12 months, these costs will add up quickly. I plan to work while studying (if possible) but most likely this income will cover basic day-to-day expenses. If accepted, I am not opposed to deferring admission for another year so that I can save more money.
If anyone has any information please don’t hesitate to shoot it my way. I just want to be happy in my professional life (who doesn’t?), and this is my attempt!
Thank you kindly ☺
