Located in Chambéry, France – east of Lyon and south of Geneva, Switzerland –INSEEC Alpes Savoie complements INSEEC’s current grand école 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.
