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.

Personal recommendation
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.

Bonne école de commerce dans le top 10

Overall
Je connais peu de personne complètement satisfait de leur école de commerce, mais Neoma Business School a l'avantage de proposer des cours d'assez bonne qualité, des partenariats avec de grandes entreprises, et de rendre l'échange universitaire gratuit et possible pour tous les étudiants, qu'importe leur niveau.
De plus, Neoma est une école qui est assez bien connu des recruteurs et grands groupes de manière général.

Pros
Nombreuses universités partenaires partout dans le monde. Les étudiants sont envoyés en petit groupe ce qui empeche de se retrouver qu'entre français, et il se déroule pendant un semestre de cours (pas comme dans d'autres écoles où il remplace un stage)
Cons
Administration lente et non arrangeante avec les étudiants (comme partout)

An Inclusive and diversified School

Overall
the School culture and atmosphere is really friendly and inclusive for all students that I consider as very important for students well being. 

The teacher are opened to discusion reaaly good at teaching: they provide some group activities, different experiences and sometime intervention of people from outside in addition to " classical" classes 

The cons I found is that adminitrative aspect at Neoma is sometime fll of processes and I can take a lot of time. 
Liked to that the communcation about different events in the school and the different societies  is a bit insuficient.

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.

Overall
This is a cross-international cooperation business project. My team members are from the United States, Italy, and Myanmar. We provided solutions to the challenges faced by an Italian wine company. In this process, we overcome cultural differences, jet lag, and technical problems, and finally successfully completed our project.
Greatly improve cross-international collaboration and communication skills.
It is very beneficial to learn from each other's strengths.
