France table league for business studies: heading towards the school of the future
This year, the Covid-19 crisis has shaken up higher education, forcing business schools to renew their teaching methods and pedagogy to prepare for the school of the future. To better capture French establishments’ evolution during this period, Le Point’s teams have compared 37 schools according to a new methodology.
Employment arrangements for students
Entrepreneurship, apprenticeship, remote work… At EMLV, there are plenty of ideas to ease students’ transition into the workforce, even when internships are cancelled.
According to Le Point, the Devinci Start-up pre-incubator is a real springboard for employment at the Pole Leonard de Vinci.
Students can receive mentorship and guidance from business experts so they can set up their own business.
Therefore, between 2020 and 2021, 50 EMLV students have worked on their business projects within the school’s accelerator.
The work-study programme is another scheme that is gaining momentum.
“In September 2020, we had almost the same number of apprentices as in September 2019”, Sebastien Tran, head of the business school, said.
EMLV focuses on international exposure to equip future managers with a solid understanding of the world’s realities.
For many years, EMLV Business School has pioneered a genuinely cross-cultural and international approach with students, faculty, international corporate partners, and alumni from around the globe.
As a result, the Pole Leonard de Vinci has become a melting pot of cultures and ethnicities.
Research plays a vital role in how EMLV engages with local and international communities.
De Vinci Research Center is Pole Leonard de Vinci’s research cluster, which incorporates three areas of expertise in business, digital and finance.
Because of the diversity in the curriculum at the Pole Leonard de Vinci, thanks to its three schools (business, engineering and multimedia) EMLV offers a unique interdisciplinary approach to research.
Soft skills training
EMLV made deploying soft skills training top of its priority list.
Pole Leonard de Vinci’s Soft skills department offers interdisciplinary hackathons for each class all year round to develop young adults’ teamwork and empathy capacities.
Business students mingle with colleagues coming from entirely different backgrounds and work together to provide hands-on solutions for global issues such as: climate change, diversity, responsible social and corporate approaches.
