Course recommendations
The UPEM courses are an absolute joke for anyone with even a mediocre standard of french, and better still for those who aren't really bothered, many are offered in english. If you want to learn french, take courses with the french students, that is from the grande école programme. Some can be tricky, many teachers don't make allowances for foreigners, but with the smallest amount of effort you can pass. And a pass is alll that the french students are looking for anyway. I guarantee that the average will never be above 12 out of twenty. Unless you really like accounting, stay away from compta générale. Oral and written exams- the average this year was below ten and all my mates from the football team failed. I passed, by the skin of my teeth. 4 to 6 hours a week, mon and fri mornings, my colleague from Dublin nearly killed me when I told her to take it. Content is simple, but the written exam is simply too long for the french, never mind a foreigner. Fiscalité is no picnic. Strat Fi, 2nd year is apparently difficult, as is controle de gestion 2. Its 1st year equivalent is a joke for anyone that uses his brain. I did FA and got 19. Stay away from the language courses in second term if you're there for the year. Headwreckingly simplistic. FCP in final term is supposedly a joke- no exams- they even go camping. Finance de Marchés is handy enough for a foreigner. Regardless, don't worry about it, choose what you want, and look at it the night before and you'll be fine. There's no great depth in any of these courses. 'On étudiera la veille mon pote' is a phrase you should hear often enough.

Personal comments
The program for foreign students is not streamed. Many foreigners that only started studying french a couple of months before their arrival are put in with others that are practically fluent. If you are part of the latter category, you'll soon be bored. On the other hand. If you take courses with the french, you'll have final exams- so when all the other foreigners are getting drunk, falling in and out of bars and doing god knows what else, you'll be pissed off. That's the price to pay though if you are determined to raise your level.

4.0/5
Overall
Neoma Business School is triple accredited by EQUIS, AACSB and AMBA. The CESEM programmes provides an authentic, immersive experience. This degree in collaboration with Dublin City University allows students to earn a Franco-international dual diploma and gain valuable work experience. It is a versatile training course centred on management fundamentals. I will participate in this programme from 2018 - 2020.

Pros
Their teaching expertise is unquestionable in finance, marketing and leadership. The university prepares students for careers in an increasingly global labour market.

Overall
The good thing about Neoma business school is that even when it is ranked seventh business school in France, Neoma has pretty smooth working environment. The teachers are reachable almost all the time. For someone who does not want to live in metropolitan Neoma campuses offers perfect location. Neoma is merger of two French business schools that provide rich variety of courses.

Personal spending habits
Housing is less expensive, even with the euro being about 2 Canadian dollars. Everything else was about the same price as here (or in the States), but in Euros. Food especially is very expensive. And of course, I did a lot of travelling in Europe.

Personal comments
The banking account was free. If you travel, book at least 2 weeks in advance - you can get amazing deals. Especially if you use discount airlines, such as easyjet, ryanair and aerlingus. Eurolines buses are pretty cheap too. And if you'll most use the SNCF (for train travel within France), definitely get the Carte 12-25. You'll save 50% on almost all journeys. You can ust the school's computers for the internet. You can also get a WiFi card from the international office for free (but with a deposit). But WiFi only works in 1 building. If you want internet in your room, it gets expensive (I think 25EUR/mth with limited up/downloads). For the phone: you don't really need one - you can call payphone-to-payphone and use calling cards. If you decide you need one, get a cellphone - they're actually cheaper than a landline. You can get a cheap one at Carrefour and pay as you go. Oh, and North American cell phones don't work in Europe, unless yours is tri-band.

Overall
Une école divisée en plusieurs campus (Rouen, Reims et Paris). Les cours sont cohérents vis à vis de la formation effectuée. Les partenaires à l'étrangers sont nombreux et les spécialités (entrepreneuriat pour ma part) sont très instructives.
Cependant l'école manque de communication via l'administration ainsi que d'organisation.

Professionalisation. Increase quality of some courses and of easy exams. Let students study themselve instead of presenting everything in class.

Final comments
The ESC Reims is not a bad school and a lot of effort is made to offer quality courses. Nevertheless, there is no study mentality present at all. Students arrive late (typically French) and prefer to do as less as possible. This is fed by the French system of sitting down, taking notes and reproducing at the exam. Although this can be quite handy or easy for a foreign student, it gets boring now and then. Reims is a nice city, only when you make it nice. That means undertaking things and making tours in its surroundings. Don't expect to much of the nightlife: prices are high and pubs close early, while the French do not really have the 'going out' mentality. They prefer to give small parties at home, or go to parties arranged by school.
