At the beginning of the September 2022 academic year, 3 new Higher Education Establishments opened their doors in Lille: ESCEN, Webtech Institute and Bachelor Institute. Already established in Paris, Lyon and Bordeaux, these schools specialize in commerce, digital and technology. It should be noted that they are also members of the NEXT U Group. Hence their installation in the EuraTechnologies district in Lille, within the 500 m2 campus of the said group!
“For this new establishment in France, we had the choice of the city. It was Lille that revealed the most favorable potential for the professional integration of our graduates, whether in e-commerce, web marketing professions or computer/mobile development. We are also closing partnerships with several companies in the metropolitan region of Lille. Young people from Hauts-de-France will be able to follow quality training and start their professional life in the Region”.says Pierre Grege, Director of the NEXT U Group.
