What is the best way to approach management in a globalised economy? What is the best way to ensure that managers can deal with cultural difference? Part of the mission of any business and management school is to answer these questions. The international dimension can be seen everywhere at La Rochelle Business School, with its multiculturalism, international programmes, diverse experiences abroad, and the development of international partnerships. The school reflects the image of the city in which it is based: on the shores of the Atlantic, open to the world.

L a Rochelle Business School has brought together all the different accommodation services into a new platform to make it easier for students to find a suitable place to live in La Rochelle.
What is the platform?
How can I access this platform? Once your enrolment is complete and you have paid your tuition fees, the Programme Coordinator for your programme will give you a code so that you can create an account to use the platform. As soon as you have created your account, you can start searching for your ideal accommodation!
types of accommodation Host Family accommodation From €300 to €400 per month Living with a host family is usually a very rewarding and enriching experience. You will have an opportunity to discover the French way of life and improve your language skills by exchanging ideas and ways of doing things. The family will arrange to pick you up from La Rochelle train station or airport and will also help you in finding your way around town. Host family accommodation will provide you with your own room and you can choose to share breakfast and evening meals with the family. If you do not have your meals with the family, you will be able to use their kitchen to prepare your own. The tariffs are set by either the host family or house owner.
Flats/Apartments From €400 to €600 per month Housing costs in La Rochelle vary greatly, depending on a number of factors, such as the area, proximity to public transport, condition of the property, whether it is furnished or unfurnished and whether or not utilities are included. RENTING A FLAT/APARTMENT If you rent a flat via our platform, the landlord has to draw up a tenancy agreement that sets out the terms and conditions of your residency. It is only when you hand over the deposit that both you and the landlord are mutually bound by the agreement.
TENANCY AGREEMENT (IN FRENCH THIS IS KNOWN AS A ‘BAIL’) Just like the host family tenancy agreement, if you choose to rent a flat, your contract should set out the terms and conditions of your residency as well as your rights and legal obligations. It should include the following: A description of the accommodation. The length of the contract.
SECURITY DEPOSIT The Security Deposit is usually one or two months’ rent which is held by the landlord in case of damage to the property. When you move out, the property will be checked and if everything is in order your security deposit will be fully refunded within a maximum of two months.
INVENTORY OF FIXTURES & FITTINGS (ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE) Before taking possession of your accommodation, there will be an inventory of fixtures and fittings and this will be repeated when you move out. This process is to assess whether any damage has been done to the accommodation and therefore whether your security deposit will be refunded in full. In the event of any damage or missing items, the landlord will deduct the relevant value from the deposit. Any outstanding charges (e.g. rent, refuse collection) will also be deducted before refunding the deposit. The landlord is legally bound to return the deposit or the balance of deposit within two months of you leaving your accommodation.
CONTRACTUAL INFORMATION The following list is not exhaustive but gives you an overview of some of your legal obligations:
