It lasts for three years (180 ECTS) and not four (240 ECTS) like a Spanish degree because it follows the adaptation of the Bologna plan in France (three years – 180 ECTS) – Maîtrise (two years – 120 ECTS). In total, if you study the Bachelor’s Degree and the Master’s Degree that is five years (300 ECTS) like in Spain: Degree (four years – 240 ECTS) – Master’s Degree (1 year – 60 ECTS).
No, there isn’t. TBS adheres to the ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) standards. Wherever you study, an ECTS credit will correspond to the same amount of work for the student. 60 ECTS must be earned each year. When you complete the Bachelor program, you earn 180 ECTS.
No, the Bachelor is equivalent to an official university degree qualification, in this particular case, a Bachelor in Management degree. A bachillerato is equivalent to a high school qualification.
Not necessarily. On the Toulouse campus you can complete the entire program in French or English.

Only a few elective subjects are available solely in French in Toulouse and Casablanca.

We have collaboration agreements with companies, but students can also search for internships at companies anywhere in the world that are of interest to them. The Career Starter department is responsible for making sure that students get internships that match their professional project, but it is the student’s responsibility to find their internships as this is a learning experience. The TBS internship policy is very broad and the only restriction is that the company cannot be run by the student’s family.
It depends on the company. Although the school recommends companies to give students minimal compensation, it depends on the duration of the internship and the country’s legislation.
Yes, their corresponding credits make the internships a fundamental part of the Bachelor program, and they are evaluated as part of it. In addition, at least one internship period (in the first or second year) must be completed abroad.
No, TBS accepts partial payments in three instalments.
Yes, although this is not the aim of TBS Bachelor in Management degree, which is a practical program and very focused on the professional world. That notwithstanding, you must homologate the qualification in your corresponding country.
