Doing business in France demands the specific knowledge and skills that are viewed as the norm there. In this course, students/professionals set up their own business and write a Business Plan. Topics covered in this context are: options for raising capital, the various types of business entity in France, human resources and management. The course focuses especially on standard French business terminology, and on the professional design and structure of the Business Plan. In addition to practising with written skills, students will have ample opportunity to engage in spoken interaction and production.
