Language instruction occupies an important place in the curriculum, with particular emphasis on less commonly studied European languages. Thus, alongside English, German, Spanish and Italian, the Dijon campus also offers Polish, Hungarian, Romanian, Russian and Czech. The Dijon Campus hosts students who are attracted by its European and international character and are planning to pursue careers with a European dimension. Central and Eastern Europe is a particularly dynamic growth region that is very attractive to international investors, while on the political level these countries are already playing a major role in the 28-member Union. Knowledge of this part of our continent, and more generally a deep understanding of the stakes surrounding the European Union today, therefore represents an invaluable asset for students in their future studies and professional careers.
