SCHAUMBURG, Ill. (Jan 18, 2013) — Career Education Corporation (CEC), a global provider of postsecondary education programs and services, today announced that it has assumed operation of ESC Chambery, a business school in the French Alps, incorporating it into its Paris-based INSEEC Group of schools.
Now known as INSEEC Alpes Savoie, the school in the Savoy region of France extends the network of INSEEC Group campuses with another elite "grand ecole" school, which have selective admissions criteria in the French higher education system. Located in Chambery, France – east of Lyon and south of Geneva, Switzerland -INSEEC Alpes Savoie complements INSEEC's current grand ecole schools in Paris and Bordeaux.
As a result of the new association, students attending INSEEC Alpes Savoie will have access to courses offered by the INSEEC Group in Paris, Bordeaux, Lyon, Monaco, London and Chicago. The business-focused programs of INSEEC include master's degrees in business administration, concentrations in marketing research, luxury marketing, communications, advertising, tourism, and food and wine marketing. With its location serving the tourism industry in the Alps, INSEEC Alpes Savoie boasts strong programs in sports marketing and foreign languages.
"The INSEEC Alpes Savoie campus provides an excellent complement to the INSEEC Group of schools, strengthening the network with a campus at European geographic crossroads of France, Germany, Switzerland and Italy," said Catherine Lespine, General Manager of Career Education's Paris-based INSEEC Group of schools.
In May 2012, the INSEEC Group expanded its executive education curricula with the acquisition of the corporate training firm Luxury Attitude, which specializes in service and customer relations training for premium and luxury companies. That complements those offered in the Luxury Business Division and the specialized programs already developed by the International University of Monaco (IUM), which was acquired by Career Education in 2010.
Since 1975, the INSEEC Group has been developing innovative higher education programs, from bachelor to doctoral degrees, in a wide range of areas. Its commitment has been to design programs adapted to ease access to the job market for its alumni.
