A model that no longer has to prove itself

The excellence of American colleges

Higher education in the USA is a guarantee of excellence. The American diploma is particularly well integrated in today's professional world and globalized context. The learning conditions are facilitated by a low teacher/pupil ratio and personalized follow-up.


You only have to look at the world ranking of the best schools by discipline. According to the latest Times Higher Education ranking, North American schools have the highest number of places in the top 10 in the following major fields of study: "Business and Economics", "Engineering and Technology", "Humanities and Arts", "Health", "Life Sciences", "Physical Sciences", "Social Sciences" and "Computer Sciences".

The athlete students in conditions of success

In the United States, sport is closely linked to the school system. One of the benefits is that school and sports schedules are coordinated. Universities and the NCAA (the organization that governs university sport) are working hard to ensure the academic success of student athletes. A student athlete in academic failure will not be able to compete in sports.


To guarantee the success of student athletes, there are many facilities: priority to choose classes and establish a weekly schedule, a career counselor, reserved study rooms, tutors for homework help, absences always excused for competitions and extremely accommodating teachers to help make up for missed assignments, etc.

The 5 types of diplomas that you can obtain in the USA

Associate degree

An Associate degree attests to 2 years of full-time higher education.

Bachelor's degree

A Bachelor's degree requires 4 years of full-time higher education.

However, it is the equivalent of a "licence" in France (Bac+3).


Master's degree

A Master's degree requires 2 years of full-time higher education after a Bachelor's degree (Bachelor's degree + 2 years).

It has the same equivalence as in France (5 years of higher education)

MBA degree

A Master of Business Administration (MBA) is a special form of Master's degree.

It is highly coveted and generally requires prior professional experience.


A PhD (doctorate of philosophy) requires 2 to 3 years of study following a Master's degree (Master's + 2-3 years).

The PhD candidate must submit a thesis to obtain the diploma.
