Trip Overview

FGX programs include a week-long global experience that lets students get a jump start on study abroad, learn how international issues and cultural differences impact the business world, and take the first step in developing a global mindset.

“Entrepreneur” is originally a French word, loosely translated as “adventurer.” So we’ll embark on an adventure to learn how entrepreneurship – and business, in general – is evolving in France. Paris is now a beckon for startups, as political, economic, and social forces become more supportive of new ventures. The City of Light provides a fascinating backdrop, as it blends rich tradition and bold transformation. We’ll study it all amid the unforgettable landmarks, food and culture of one of the world’s greatest cities.

Entry and Exit Requirements

Visit the Embassy of France website for the most current visa and entry requirement information.

The Government of France does not recognize the 12-page U.S. emergency passport, issued by U.S. embassies and consulates overseas, as a valid travel document for visa-free entry into France. If traveling on this emergency passport, you may be refused boarding and/or entry by immigration officials and/or held at the airport until a return flight to the U.S. is available. Direct transit through France for another destination accepting an emergency passport may be permitted. You should check entry requirements of any other country of destination to make sure the emergency passport is accepted for entry.

Traveling Through Europe: If you are planning to visit or travel through European countries, you should be familiar with the requirements of the Schengen Agreement. For additional information about visas for the Schengen area, see the Schengen Visa page.

  • Your passport must be valid for at least three months beyond the period of stay. Review the U.S. Travelers in Europe page.
