Franco-British Student Alliance

Franco-British Student Alliance

The Franco-British Student Alliance (FBSA, or Alliance Etudiante Franco-Britannique, AEFB, in French), is a forum and networking organization for students from France and Britain. It both addresses the future of Franco-British relations and promotes the global competitiveness of the academic sectors of both countries. The Alliance was founded in 2004 during the 100th anniversary (centenary) of the "Entente Cordiale", and unites the students and young alumni of six leading universities from both countries: the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, the London School of Economics (LSE), The "Institut d'Etudes Politiques de Paris (Sciences Po)" (the French counterpart of LSE), HEC (the top European business school according to the "Financial Times", as of 2005) the "Ecole Polytechnique" (France's top engineering school), and ESSEC (a top french business school) . It functions under the joint patronage of The Queen and the President of France, and under the joint presidency of Lord Salisbury and le Marquis de Breteuil.
