The ECV is a school with an open outlook on the world that has been able to successfully adapt to the expectations of its students, especially in terms of mobility. In addition to the training the school offers, a double degree has been integrated into the curriculum. Students have the possibility of spending a year abroad in the United States or in Australia, allowing them to obtain a degree recognized worldwide. For ECV students, this is an exceptional opportunity to become immersed in another programme and to complete courses through a different pedagogical and cultural approach. Entering a double degree programme also means extending one’s personal and professional network to other countries and thus furthering professional opportunities.
