An Anglo-Saxon approach
Preparing our students to work in an international business environment requires developing a wide-range of professional skills. Courses are not teacher-centred but focus on the personal commitment of students to their training, encouraging them to take an a key role in building the content and solving related problems.
Students take an active part in projects
Project-based teaching, team-work, case studies… promoting the active involvement of students in their training is fundamental to developing their entrepreneurial spirit, and their autonomy, encouraging them to become proactive team-players. This innovative teaching approach clearly positions ESTICE as a provider of training for tomorrow’s International Managers.
Example of implementation of this project culture:
- France-Finland project (Master students). As part of the intercultural management course, ESTICE students work with their counterparts from 10 different nationalities based in the JAMK University in Finland. The outcome of this virtual team work is a common presentation that highlights the challenges companies face when implementing diversity policies successfully. Exchanging perspectives between France and Finland, the project is the opportunity to put theory into practice, and develop the skills that are essential for future international managers.
– 2nd year student projects based on 5 themes (Communications, Internationalization at Home, Business Development, Community service, Student life.) Each group of students identifies a series of objectives and organizes appropriate events.
“The core of a training programme resides in the quality of the academic approach. University teaching techniques are a major concern for our school. With professors, we endeavour to enhance our practices to empower students, and help them play an active role in their learning experiences. Within the teaching innovation lab of the University, we prepare, through scientific research, for the challenges of tomorrow’s education.”
