Some of the degrees at ISTHIA are in partnership with Taylor’s University of Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia: Bachelor’s degree MRC, Bachelor’s degree MHR, Bachelor’s degree MIT, Bachelor’s degree PA, Master’s degree MIHM and Master’s degree FSG.

The Erasmus exchanges take place in Spain with:

As well as in Scotland with the Business School of Edinburgh Napier University in Edinburgh.
There is a bilateral agreement with the School of Management Sciences at the Université du Québec in Montréal (ESG-UQAM) in Canada.
RESEARCH ACTIVITIES ABROAD

BILATERAL MOBILITY PROGRAMMES
Exchanges between different partner universities also translate to bilateral teaching mobility programmes. ISTHIA lecturers are invited, on an ad hoc or more permanent basis, to take part in the teaching faculties of universities abroad. Similarly, foreign lecturers come to ISTHIA to give lectures and courses in French or English. Also, international students come to spend a semester or a year at the Toulouse or Foix campuses to study a number of courses at ISTHIA.
