French Riviera and more specifically the region of Grasse, hosts all aspects of the flavor and fragrance industry, such as the cultivation of aromatics and medicinal plants and the transformation and creation of fragrances and essences.

All these processes are developed in this area, generating more than 3000 jobs resulting directly with this industry.


Two local programs already exist in the Flavor and Fragrance field :

  • University Côte d'Azur offers the "FOQUAL" Master's (formulation, analysis, quality): an apprenticeship master
  • EDHEC Business School offers a specialization in fragrance and cosmetics in the BBA EDHEC program

In 2018, University Côte d'Azur launched this new international MSc program, in collaboration with EDHEC Business School and ISIPCA. This alliance set up an international and transdisciplinary program fully taught in English, focused on flavor and fragrance sciences and marketing.

For 2 years, our program welcomed 45 students, coming from all over the world and willing to get trained by our speakers (professionals from the industry or our researchers, experts in this field)
