Erasmus

The Erasmus + program for higher education contributes to the creation of a European Higher Education project by pursuing several objectives, including:

  • the improvement  of quality, and strengthening, of the European dimension of higher education;
  • the increase in mobility of students, teachers and academic staff;
  • the strengthening of multilateral  cooperation ;
  • la transparence et la reconnaissance des qualifications acquises ;
  • the transparency and recognition of acquired qualifications;
  • the internationalization of European higher education institutions.

The program promotes mobility activities in Europe and abroad for students (periods of study or internships), teaching staff, and all staff of higher education institutions.

It also facilitates partnership actions through cooperation projects, knowledge alliances or capacity building projects, as well as joint Master programs.

TBS, through its pre-experience training programs, is very much part of this ambitious scheme.

Student Mobility
Staff Mobility
Faculty Mobility

In order to graduate, all students must validate an international experience either by studying abroad in a foreign university or by an interning abroad. This experience is an integral part of your academic curriculum at Toulouse Business School. A strong professional and international experience while at TBS will build up your resume and act as a spring board, jump starting your professional career.

It should be noted that there are a limited number of scholarships granted annually by the European Commission. Please consult the International Mobility Service for study abroad programs and the Career Center for internship placements. Erasmus grants are allocated in accordance with the amount available. TBSE reserves the right to finance partially students mobilities.
