BTS Executive assistant
Post-secondary BTS education aims at developing general and professional skills required to face the responsibilities and requirements within the private sector, an association, or in an administration. It is intended for motivated and versatile students who wish to complement their secondary education in order to increase their chances of finding a job.
The BTS executive assistant provides a very broad training which revolves around four key points:
- Communication and organisation
- Written and oral expression
- General knowledge in Economics and Law
- Management techniques and tools
The theoretical concepts taught during this degree are set into a Luxembourgish economic and legal context. To allow students to integrate into an international context, emphasis is put on the development of language skills. On a regular basis, the students put their professional knowledge into practice by participating in the organisation of internal and external events. These activities help develop the candidates’ ability to integrate into a working environment and to work in teams.
Since BTS studies strive to provide exhaustive training relevant to the professional world, the ECG has installed a 19-week internship to promote the autonomy of the candidates. Students conclude their training by carrying out and presenting an individual project focused on their speciality.
The executive assistant will be able to support a team in the management of their projects and activities. Endowed with a good general knowledge, they gather and process information with the help of technological solutions and IT equipment. They organise and coordinate activities on behalf of their supervisor. They will be able to exercise discretion, work autonomously and stand out due to their interpersonal skills and versatility.» Download ‘Targeted learning outcomes’ of the BTS-BAD here
