French term or phrase:IUP Institut Universitaire Professionnalisé
It is not in the glossary.
Any good glassaries on this subject on the web?
Explanation: This, or something like Centre for Business & Entreprise, is the best I can come up with (perhaps you could keep ULP and give it a translator's gloss). It is not a faculty as such nor a Business School, but ULPs offer vocationally-oriented undergraduate courses.
Being in the UK, my tip would be to look at the centres within business faculties at UK universities (especially the newer ones, which have a long history of vocational-type courses) to look at the titles of any centres there which are doing something similar.
There are lots of ULP webpages on various French university websites.

Explanation: I agree with the other two that the original is probably best left as is. All the same, in North America such a school is referred to as a Community College, offering undergraduate courses for a college rather than university degree (like IUPs, IUTs, etc in France).
