NOEMA offers a wide variety of courses in both French and English. No previous language experience is necessary, but students wishing to enroll in courses taught in French must show proficiency in the language.

Student Life

As a student at NEOMA, education does not just take place inside the classroom. The school has over 60 clubs and societies that will help an entrepreneurial spirit, dynamism, and responsibility. In addition, making friends will be a breeze with a large variety of clubs for sports, art, and culture.

Additionally, NEOMA's International Programs Office is there for you throughout your time in Rouen. Whether you're looking for suggestions for where to eat or want advice on how to deal with homesickness, the full-time staff can assist you.


The NEOMA Business School International Office books accommodation for students on a limited, first-come, first-served basis. Any accommodation booked through NEOMA must be confirmed by payment of the total amount due for the semester (rent + fees). Please see below for potential housing options:

  • On campus
    • Room (9m2) or studio (around 18 m2): 210-330 Euro/ month
  • Off-campus
    • Studio (around 20m2) or F1 (around 25m2): 420-540 Euro/ month
  • Homestay
    • A great opportunity to share the daily life of a real family. A good way to improve your French level and to discover the French culture.

An alternative to student accommodation is to find an apartment in Rouen, the cost of which varies from 300 Euro/month upwards (although those who share will pay less). If you want to rent an apartment, you are responsible for finding your own accommodations, although the International Office can help you in your search. In this case, you should arrive early for your exchange.

The housing selection is part of the post-acceptance phase, and NEOMA will give you further instruction once you have been nominated.

Walk-In Advising Hours: By Appointment Only

Bonjour! I’m the International Programs Manager for Pitt Business. I’m originally from New York but have spent some time in France, as I have dual nationality. I’m new to the city and university, but I can’t wait explore my inner yinzer! Since high school, I have participated in short and long term study abroad programs.  My first stop was in Spain, then a semester in France and finally two short term programs in Cuba and India. Outside of the office you can find me exploring new restaurants, biking, skiing, watching HGTV or planning my next adventure! My hope is for every Pitt student to study abroad. You can get in touch with me at aschweber@business.pitt.edu or 412-383-7489.
