Under the agreement, which was completed in October, students can transfer from the PSB in their third year and complete the requirements to earn a bachelor's degree in business from U of O in one year. After graduating from Ozarks, the students return to PSB to complete a master's degree.

The partnership also offers Ozarks students an opportunity to spend a summer in Paris for one of the school's short programs or for semester-long study. In addition, the relationship provides heightened access for graduates from Ozarks to be admitted into one of the seven master's degree programs offered by PSB.  Ozarks graduates can earn a master's degree from PSB in 12-18 months.

Master's degrees offered by the Paris School of Business include, entrepreneurship, marketing strategy and data analytics, supply chain, luxury and fashion management, wine and food management, international finance, and hospitality and tourism management.

The first students from Paris will be enrolled at Ozarks in the Fall of 2017. During the summer of 2016, nine U of O students took part in the two-week summer short programs at the PSB.
