Paris and the tourism. First european spot, Paris hosts millions of tourist from all over the world every year. The history of this Roma-era founded city charms the visitor, and the inheritance for centuries of art, culture and history left famous monuments, a cosmopolitan atmosphear, a unique art of living. From the Tour Eiffel to Montmartre district, people will enjoy this life which perfectly sums up the French Touch.
Art and Fashion are another reason why people are attracted by Paris. As a capital of Art, Paris has hosted thousand of artists from all over the world and has always showed open minded to all the different trend and it is the origin of lot of new art school in painting, music, cinema. From the Jazz in Saint-Germain to the oil painting in montmartre, every district of Paris is a village with a warm and unique atmosphear.
Christian Dior? Louis Vuitton? Place Vandome? do those names ring a bell? Capital of Elegance, Paris offers to the world the best of the Fashion and Luxury. The spirit which live in Paris is the one which is looking for the perfect beauty. This way of living is not only in the fashion show or the Champ Elysee but all around Paris from the little grocery store in Barbes to the Gallerie LaFayette.
With a total population of more than 10 millions inhabitants and a GDP per habitant of 39000 euros (to compare, the GDP of London is only 33000 euros), Paris remains one of the most attractive european city. 60000 eutrepreneurs set up a company every year and 100 000 euros of added value per job, Paris is the most dynamic euro-region.

City presentation

The center of an urban area of more than 100,000 inhabitants, Chamb¨¦ry is situated between the Bauges massif and the Chartreuse mountain range, in the cluse that bears its name. To the south the town stretches out to the vineyards on the hillsides of the Combe of Savoie ; to the north it almost reaches the shores of Lake Bourget ¡ª France's largest natural lake.

In former centuries the growth of Chamb¨¦ry was closely related to the fortune of the House of Savoie ¡ª one of Europe's oldest ruling families dating from the 11th century. From 1295 to 1563 the Savoies elected the town as their capital mainly because of its situation at he crossroads of the Alpine traffic between France, Italy and Switzerland. Nowadays with the setting up of the French-Italian company "Lyon-Turin Ferroviaire" in charge of the international part of the route Chamb¨¦ry is the hub of the new Lyon-Turin rail link project.

Communication facilities are at the root of Chamb¨¦ry's sound economic resources. Traditionally an administrative and commercial center, the town has taken advantage of the surge connected with the 1992 Winter Olympics of Albertville and of Savoie to strengthen its position and assert its role as Alpine heartland of Europe.

Enjoying both the benefits of the quality of life of a human-sized city and of equipments worthy of a large city, Chamb¨¦ry is today deliberately looking to the future. This is attested, for instance, by the establishment of the International Research and Development Center of V¨¦trotex (Saint-Gobain group), as well as by the development of the technological park of Savoie Technolac, the emergence of an environmental area of activity, or by its young University of Savoie attracting an ever increasing number of students from all over the world and setting up a Mountain Studies Institute.

Note: What an excellent integration program! The specific program AES (Business administration which is a joint program with Rennes 1) is a great opportunity for excellent students to get a master degree in three years and 11 differents specializations. But right now, this program is only for business students. The normal FLE program is also excellent and will allow the students to get smoothly into its major.
