In September 2014, Dauphine launched its premier Global Bachelor's programme in London, opening its doors to 1st year Bachelor's students in Economics and Management. The programme was extended to
second year Bachelor's students in 2015. In total, 85 students are enrolled in the London programme for the 2015-2016 academic year.
The London curriculum is similar to the 1st and 2nd year Dauphine Paris Bachelor's programme. Classes aretaught in English, primarily by British university faculty (King's College, UCL, LSE, University of Bath). In addition to their core disciplines (macroeconomics, microeconomics, private law, public law, introduction to management, accounting, statistics and math), all students are enrolled in language courses.
Dauphine has significantly increased student exposure to and immersion in the British academic system thanks to a recently finalized partnership with UCL that gives GBD students access to UCL associative, sporting and language-training activities.
Our student body hails primarily from Lycées Français de l'étranger (LFE) and from English-language sections of international schools but also includes students from traditional high schools in France. Language proficiency requirements are strict – to be admitted to the programme, students must show a prefect command of spoken and written English.
A Dean of Students has recently joined the GBD London team to broaden the program's horizons, specifically by developing extracurricular activities that enrich the student experience and encourage programme participants to take advantage of all that London has to offer: sports, conferences, arts and culture… Dauphine Alumni's large and active London network is an enormous asset for the programme. For example, last Autumn, students were able to attend the World Cup Rugby match between France and Rumania thanks to the Société Générale!
