The graduates of these schools receive a master's degree.Along with their long traditions and rich histories, the grandes ecoles provide top quality vocational education. In addition to their regular training programs, they offer students abroad the opportunity to study through international exchange programs.Admission selection for these schools is very strict due mainly to the volume of applicants.In recent years they have become increasingly open to applications from foreign students.For this year's event, the directors for admission from each of the 10 business schools (grandes ecoles) will be present.The open-house event takes place on Nov. 29 (Saturday), 2008, 10:20 a.m. - 9 p.m., and Nov. 30 (Sunday), 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.The schools have openings for master's degree courses in business administration for the year 2009.French Ambassador to Seoul, Philippe Thiebaud hosted a reception at his residence in Seoul between noon and 1:30 p.m. on Nov. 28, 2008.
