Are you about to graduate from high school, asking yourself which studies are appropriate for you? This choice determines your chances of succeeding in your higher studies and your professional future lies at its core. The School of Business and Management is the ideal partner for young bachelors wishing to complete their secondary education in the administrative and economic area.
In 1990, the ECG was able to widen its school offer in the economic and administrative domain and offer seminars in higher education at an excellent level.
Since 2009, the BTS has enjoyed a legal basis in higher education. The BTS is a short-term study course (2 years) which can be situated at Level 5 of the Common European Framework and which has work-related purpose. The diploma proves that its holders have acquired a professional qualification and that they are able to hold jobs as qualified technicians.
These days, we welcome more than 200 students in 3 differing specialities.
- Assistant de direction (executive assistant)
- Gestionnaire comptable et fiscal (accounting and tax manager)
- Gestionnaire en commerce et marketing (business and marketing manager)
The BTS training aims at developing knowledge and general professional competences required to endorse responsibilities in a privately-run company or state institution. This course prepares multi-faceted candidates to fully integrate a company and to work in a team.
The teaching takes place in small groups.
A team of teachers oversees and monitors the students for approximately 30 hours a week, during which students follow theory-based classes and guided practice activities. Furthermore, students are given the chance to visit companies, participate at conferences and work on their own personal projects. It is worth noticing that the language teaching which takes place across the different sections enables students to set foot more easily in our international market.
It is interesting to point out that most subjects are taught in French, thus making it possible for foreign students to enrol.
Students are assessed on the basis of the different marks obtained in the classes and modules.
Knowledge and skills are continuously assessed. In addition, there are two set of testing periods in each year. At the ECG, a BTS graduate has acquired 120 ECTS, which enables easier international student mobility.
Further strengths of our study programme
High level of professionalism at a BTS-level, which favours internships (18 weeks in the 4th semester). Employers appreciate recruiting a young workforce which is already familiar with the day-to-day running of a company.
Seminars are regularly held and organised by teachers or external actors, outside the curriculum. These additional conferences span from human resources to marketing and are focused on students’ specialities.
