Our work is guided by a powerful set of values and a senior management team committed to a mission to train efficient business development managers who are able to operate successfully in a complex environment.
Our mission is to train efficient and responsible business development managers who are able to operate successfully in a complex, digital and international environment. To achieve this, we welcome students from all horizons thanks to our commitment to widening participation, and offer them an innovative learning approach, personalized support and supervision as well as a powerful intercultural dimension.
Three values guide our operations and initiatives.
Our learning approach enables us to go beyond just doing the ‘bare minimum’ by welcoming students from all horizons and offering them opportunities during their studies to discover a broad range of international, artistic, cultural and sporting inputs.
Our wish is to enable each student to successfully construct both their career and life project. To achieve this, students are able to personalise their learning programme and benefit from an individual support system.
We encourage our students to develop a highly professional approach to what they do. This is achieved by a pedagogical approach that largely focuses on learning by doing. The projects, challenges, case studies and simulations carried out by students enable them to naturally combine practice with theory.
