Paris is a major European city and a global center for art, fashion, gastronomy and culture. Its picturesque 19th-century cityscape is crisscrossed by wide boulevards and the river Seine. Beyond such landmarks as the Eiffel Tower and the 12th-century gothic Notre-Dame Cathedral, the city is known for its café culture and designer boutiques along the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré.
Île-de-France, the region that includes Paris, is the economic heart of France, realizing alone 28% of the national gross domestic product. It is also an intellectual and cultural metropolis as well as an urban and scientific laboratory.
Since 2003, Paris has hosted dozens of students from Armenia, Canada, Europe, the Middle East and the United States for 4 to 6-week internships at highly competitive companies throughout the city. Opportunities available are in the fields of law, marketing, business and engineering.
Past host institutions have included Sanofi Aventis, Michael Page International, Conseil National du Bareau, Alcatel, the Louvre, the French Senate and many others
