CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT AND PROFESSIONAL THESIS

Agile project management

During the programme, participants test out their skills by managing an innovative project in a group setting. This approach is based on macro – and micro – environmental studies in which participants develop and deploy a project to resolve an intra/entrepreneurial issue. The General Management Programme is conducted using ‘blended learning’, a hybrid learning method combining in-person courses and e-learning. 

Evaluation procedures

Programme participants are assessed in the following ways:

  • Evaluation of each of the five skills objectives is conducted via various formats throught the course (reports, case studies, individual or group simulations, etc.)
  • The drafting and defence of a professional dissertation, evaluating the candidate’s ability to address a management or administrative issue based on analysis and to make actionable recommendations.
  • At the end of the programme and after validation of the skills objectives and the professional dissertation, the title of “Business Unit Management and Development Manager”, RNCP Level 6, is awarded to the participant.

Vincent RION

Training expert, Crédit Agricole

In a banking environment undergoing fundamental change where physical-digital interfaces occupy an increasingly large space, managers are an essential link for uniting their teams and giving them direction based on a vision and collective project. NEOMA was able to respond to our needs by supporting our young managers in taking on in their positions at the company. The diversity of proposed modules helps support the wider culture of the banking and corporate worlds by offering a solid foundation for financial and strategic mechanisms.

• The programme is organised in a completely remote format on the Exceed platform for our customer Provale. It is intended for rugby players who want to prepare for their professional transition into the real estate sector.

Robins TCHALE WATCHOU

Director of Provale Formation

Since our mission is to assist players in the professional challenges they face in post-career phases, it was vital for us to choose a top-notch, dependable training organisation with a curriculum recognised on the professional market. In this way, NEOMA Business School and its expertise in the real estate sector responded perfectly to all of these criteria.
