An ideal living environment to study and enjoy your student life
Do you dream of studying on the waterfront, in a dynamic and resolutely modern setting? The city of Le Havre offers you the perfect environment and infrastructure to flourish during your studies.
The leading French port for container traffic, Le Havre is also a seaside resort that offers you more than two kilometres of beaches in the immediate vicinity of its city centre and served by the tramway. It is also a true kingdom of yachting where internationally renowned nautical events take place throughout the year.
The largest city in Normandy with nearly 200,000 inhabitants, Le Havre or "LH" for those who are used to it, combines modernity and heritage. Its city centre, rebuilt by Auguste Perret after the Second World War, has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2005.

The city is also the birthplace of EM Normandie, which established the ESC Le Havre in 1871, one of the very first French business schools. Ideally placed to study international trade and logistics, its proximity to the docks and the general shops already allowed the observation of the functioning of a large port and its flow of goods from all over the world.
