A French edge in Massachusetts

The Wheaton Edge guarantees students access to funding for an internship. Knowing French gives them another edge: More than 100 French-owned companies do business in Massachusetts, among them pharmaceutical giant Sanofi-Genzyme and Paris-based food service firm Sodexo. Ask Professors Walsh or Anderson for a full list of these companies, which employ some 22,000 residents here in biotech, financial services, legal, chemicals, robotics, environmental protection, and education.
