Central Administration

CASS Europe has a decentralized administrative structure which means that its academic campus in Paris and collaborating institutions abroad have responsibility for their everyday administrative activities. Within this structure there is a small central administration in Luxembourg which coordinates the overall administrative activities of the institution in Europe and abroad.

Moreover, the central administration has overall responsibility for the institution’s administration and financial activities. These include: general administration, registrar and student services.

The administrative processes and control from the central administration with regard to student matters are divided into five distinct areas which are as follows:
