"Investing in cross-cultural cultural skills is investing in oneself

Did you know that 64% of employers consider international experience as a recruitment criterion?

Cross-cultural skills are the key to managerial success in an international context.

Strong intercultural skills will allow you to better understand the workplace and improve cultural awareness. For an international career, it is important to be able to manage both one’s own culture shock and the multiculturality within your teams. IAE Aix-Marseille’s programs train students in these practical skills to enable personal development. Knowing how to adapt to new environments is one of the key qualities recognized by today’s companies.


At IAE Aix-Marseille, you will discover a unique international environment with students, teachers, and staff from 50 countries.

The International Festival is an annual event organized by and for the IAE Aix-Marseille international community where they share their culture and traditions in a friendly and exciting atmosphere. A team of Student Office and staff members is dedicated to helping international students to make this event an annual success.

“Calling all international students: before leaving your country, remember to pack your luggage with traditional costumes for the show!”


IAE Aix-Marseille encourages and supports student initiatives: student life is rich and dynamic!

“I have had the most Aix-traordinary and Aix-ellent Aix-experience of my life on Aix-exchange here, and I have no doubt that you will too. I’ve made incredible friends, discovered a new way of learning and a new language, fallen in love with the city, seen incredible sights all over the country, and wish I’d never left. I was originally going to study in Sydney, then Seattle. I finally landed in Aix, right after the health crisis canceled both of my previous options. I couldn’t have imagined being so happy that it ended this way. I can only hope that you leave your time at IAE Aix-Marseille with the same feeling.”
