The EAC is an institution born in the mid-80s, when the issue of professional training emerged first in the field of culture, then in the art market and, lastly, in the luxury industry, while being a professional in these fields revealed to be more demanding and diversified.
Over the course of more than 30 years of experience, the EAC has established itself as one of the leading institutions in training students and professionals in these sectors.
Over the years, the EAC has gradually built an educational network at international level.
Holder of the Erasmus Charter since 2006, the EAC has signed mobility agreements with universities and schools around Europe – Italy, Hungary, Germany, Spain, Lithuania…. – to which add bilateral mobility agreements with institutions in Japan, Korea and Brazil…
The EAC develops mobility programmes enabling students to study abroad for a semester and, in turn, students from the entire Europe and beyond are welcomed at the EAC. The EAC has also created veritable educational partnerships enabling students to graduate from double diplomas abroad.
The EAC programmes fit the current professional profiles, thanks to the certification and presence in the RNCP and their recognition by professional, national and international Federations.
The EAC meets international challenges by offering internationally-oriented programmes taught in English; thanks to agreements signed with European, as well as Chinese and Korean institutions, it provides an opportunity to obtain double or joint diplomas.
Meeting the student’s needs, supporting them in their educational pathway and in the development of their skills also means being able to adapt teaching formats and diversifying tools.
Though face-to-face training is the bedrock of the EAC offer, which also enables the presence of several campuses (in France and abroad), the EAC has committed to creating a training offer providing access to teaching contents, benefits from educational dynamics and a veritable support, regardless of the distance between students and their campus.
E-learning, distance learning, tailor-made support: the EAC enables new students from all corners of the world to access Bachelor’s, Master’s and MBA programmes and its students to follow their studies during their mobility programme abroad.
