Program Description:
Lyon - Place Bellecour

This trans-Atlantic dual degree program in information technology and business prepares students for success in the interconnected world of the 21st century. Participants from the USA, France, and Sweden spend their junior year at two European institutions: Ecole de Commerce Europeenne (ECE) in Lyon, France, and Linköping University in Linköping, Sweden.

During their junior year the French, Swedish, and American students spend the fall together in Lyon at Ecole de Commerce Europeenne (ECE) where they take a full load of coursework in business taught in English. The American and Swedish students also take French language classes. All Atlantis students then move on to Linköping, Sweden in January. During the spring, they complete management coursework and a thesis to earn a Bachelor of Social Sciences in Business Administration International. All students spend their senior year in the United States with the DePaul, French, and Swedish students completing DePaul CDM degrees.

Linköping University

Students arrive in Lyon, France early in September for orientation and an immersion course in French at their appropriate levels. No prior French study is required to participate in this program. There, they will take a full load of coursework at ECE during its Fall semester. All Atlantis students will then move on to Linköping, Sweden in January for winter quarter coursework. Spring quarter will be spent working on a thesis or project to complete the European degree while students continue their stay in Sweden. Depending on the courses previously taken and the degree selected, participants may be asked to spend a full calendar year in Europe. Students accepted to the program will need to take prerequisite courses prior to the program start. Once accepted, students will meet with Danny Mittleman, the program director, who will review all students' records and advise which courses they will need to complete prior to beginning the program.

Circumstances, such as an unexpected event abroad or a curriculum change at a host institution, may require DePaul University to make changes to the program. DePaul University reserves the right to cancel or alter programs and courses without notice.

Housing in this program is designed to encourage participants to live independently while learning to negotiate the host cities and institutions. Students are responsible for their own accommodations. The host institutions in Europe will help them find housing within or near their campuses. In Lyon, all housing is off-campus in the community. At Linköping, students will have the choice to stay in university housing or to share private flats. The university will facilitate the search for private flats and Swedish host students will also be available to help program participants locate housing that meets their needs.

All students participating in study abroad will be charged both tuition and a program fee. Tuition is billed at the students regular DePaul tuition rate based on the number of credits enrolled.
