Professional projects form the basis of MBA program at MBA ESG and helps to promote students’ professional involvement.
Marketing projects and consulting projects in case of companies, competitions, challenges and agency competitions; they enable the students to work, in project mode, with professionals on real-life scenarios.
The stages of a professional project:
At the outset: The company shares a real problem as a live case for the students (e.g., how to rejuvenate and revitalize its image, develop digital communication actions, promote an artist)
The project mode: The students form working groups, generally in 3’s or 4’s. The goal of professional projects is also to learn how to work in a team.
The tutoring sessions: The Education Manager of the training or the Teacher, who supervises the professional project, regularly (every week or fortnight or so) organizes work sessions and follow-ups. The objective is to measure the advancement of groups, advise them, guide them or reorient them, make them ask the right questions, set goals for the next session.
The file and the defense: After 2 months of work exposure, the groups of students create a complete file on their project and support it before a jury composed of the Educational Director (or Teacher of MBA ESG) and the representatives of the business.
A score is defined based on several criteria, including collaboration and teamwork, method of work, student proposal and recommendation.
The professional thesis
The professional thesis, completed as a group, is a step towards obtaining an MBA degree at MBA ESG. It enables the development of specialized and operational skills of the students at all stages, from the canvassing of the companies to the defense.
Each group of students is sponsored by a company. They will submit a research project to their respective companies. The theme of the professional thesis will focus on a real problem, specific to this undertaking. The research process leads the students to go beyond simple intuitions and to mobilize theories, concepts and analytical grids relevant to finding solutions for the company's questions.
