SAP ERP Software

Most large companies use ERP for running their day-today activities and SAP is the worldleader on that kind of software. Hence, SAP is the backbone of many large firms and understanding SAP means un-derstanding the way these firms actually work. Therefore, we believe that having a deep understanding of SAP ERP functioning would give students an advantage on the job market.

Excellence, Luxury and "Made in"

This Open Source Seminar gives an overall view on Excellency using cultural insights from various strong cultures and from the local craft product to the industrial and services world combined with an interna-tional perspective.

Storytelling and video

With a narrative language combining rational comprehension and an emotional dimension, audiovisual content creates possibilities for informative, fun, and appealing communication. These videos are used for personal ends (presenting an achievement, sharing a hobby, promoting values, etc.) or as a support for company communication (corporate or product- or event-related communication, etc.). In this context, it seems essential for management students to master coding and practice video communication.

French Touch Tour

The French Touch Tour is a pedagogical innovation that we launched for the first time in 2017.
France is internationally renowned for certain of its industries and talents (luxury, food, aircraft, wine, tourism, etc.).
The French Touch Tour is a way to make this know-how more visible among our international students who should be interested in discovering France through different pedagogical exercises. In this new project, we provide classes on our different campuses in France (Marseille, Bordeaux).
