Educational concept


In accordance with the mission of ESDES, the University program aims to train entrepreneur-managers capable of sustainably creating value, regardless of the cultural and disciplinary context. The 360 Pedagogy five-year implementation combines management methods and tools, development of managerial skills, and general culture and multiculturalism, reinforced by a wide field of corporate and international experimentation.

The Professional Success Pathway, which links educational inputs with professionalizing experiences, is the common thread for training with the objective that every student gets the job they seek, where they so desire, in the best market conditions.


  • Personal Profiling "Basics": students' self-awareness development and emotional intelligence development in order to increase their creative potential and consequently their ability to innovate, but also to stimulate their openness to difference and their ability to work in a multidisciplinary and multicultural context.
  • Professional Profiling "Essentials": students' relational intelligence development to enable them to work better in groups, to increase their leadership potential and their ability to build a first and foremost collective performance.
  • CMO Management: Learning Management Concepts / Methods / Tools using the entrepreneurial approach to stimulate the desire to learn and thus stimulate knowledge assimilation. The highly operational nature of learning allows students to then better contextualize their theoretical knowledge.
  • Economy & Society: the part of classes in the "Economy and Society" field in the 1st year as well as the economy profile and faculty management are used to enhance the students' knowledge in terms of Business Ethics, Macro Economics, CSR, etc...and to assimilate the concept of sharing the created added value. This increases their ability to construct a complete performance within the company and their ability to sustainably govern their business.
  • Experimentation: students have many opportunities to develop their operational and intercultural skills in order to stimulate their professional maturity and consequently their immediate employability after completing their studies. Internships in France and abroad, strengthened through international exposure and the experience of community life, act as an experimentation channel supporting students' orientation, occupation, and career choices.
