Strasbourg, France

The Ecole de Management Strasbourg is located in the largest student city in the east of France, with approximately 48,000 students. The city has proved highly attractive with foreign students, who make up some 20% of the total university student body. Strasbourg has the highest number of foreign students of all the towns and cities in France, just behind Paris. Part of the explanation for this popularity comes from the city's geographic location as a border city in the heart of Europe.
