The Kelce College of Business and a noted French university have teamed up to offer a dual master’s degree. The agreement, between PSU and La Rochelle Business School in La Rochelle, France, gives PSU students the opportunity to earn both a master’s degree in business administration from Pitt State and a master’s degree in management from La Rochelle, ranked by The Financial Times as one of the top 80 business schools in Europe.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for our students to gain international business experience and earn a degree from two of the top business programs in the world,” said Linden Dalecki, associate professor at Pitt State and coordinator of the dual degree program. “We are very excited to work with La Rochelle on this program, and we thank them for being partners in this unique venture.”
To become eligible for the program, Pitt State students must complete 25 required Kelce MBA credits. Of those who are eligible, a maximum of three students will be chosen for the program each year.
Upon selection, the students will travel to France to complete a full semester at La Rochelle. That is followed by a European internship, which is generally arranged by La Rochelle. Once complete, the students will be awarded degrees from both institutions.
