Develop a triple set of skills in management, digital and creativity!

Anne-Laure HERARD

Director of TEMA

We aim to make you into more than just managers, but rather entrepreneurs capable of doing other things, in other ways, throughout your professional career.

In the era of the digital revolution, TEMA is an innovative 5-year course to train managers in multiple skills: to be agile in a digital environment, creative, open to the world and imbued with the spirit of enterprise. All these skills are sought after by businesses as the economy undergoes digitisation.

TEMA was created as a pioneering programme in 1999, and for over 20 years it has built up its experience around two fundamental ideas:

  • Teaching that combines management, tech/digital and creativity
  • The innovative teaching method of learning by doing, favouring practical work and team projects

Joining TEMA means opting for a personalised pathway with many experiences in France or abroad (six month’s immersion in digital or design, internships/apprenticeship, double degrees, etc.) according to your ambitions and your professional aspirations.

At the end of the course, your hybrid skills will be very sought after to manage the digital transformation and develop innovation in organisations, two major issues they will have to deal with over the long term. You may work in major international groups or in start-ups, or even create your own business.

Do you want to have a future-oriented profession? Then come to TEMA!

  • Steering and coordinating multi-disciplinary and international project teams

4 business internships

You are supported in your search for internships by the counsellors of the Talent & Career Unit.

Major involvement from business

Businesses are heavily involved throughout the course, both in classes and activities (visits to businesses, enterprise projects, coaching, talks, advice sessions, internships, etc.).

A development council made up of decision-makers in businesses known as “technological” (digital, consultancy, robotics, etc.) provides advice to the programme directors, to ensure we always offer a course that meets the needs of business.

TEMA is also an official partner of Sopra Steria Next, a consultancy specialising in digital transformation.

Living at international level with TEMA

TEMA enables you to give your course an international dimension by spending up to 39 months abroad and studying half of your course in English.

Admission procedures

Admission procedures depend on where your last qualification is from.

For those with a French qualification

You can join TEMA at NEOMA after the Baccalaureate via Parcoursup, or directly in the 4th year via parallel admission.

Admission in the 1st year

Profile: holders of a baccalaureate who have been educated in France or at a French school abroad, and students on an undergraduate course of higher education who wish to change direction.

Selection:

Once your intention to enter the TEMA has been confirmed on Parcoursup, you will need to take the Concours SESAME, a common entrance competition for 14 Business and International Management Schools.

  1. 7 April 2021: 3 digitised written tests in multiple-choice form.
    For more information
  2. Only candidates who have obtained sufficiently high results in the written digitised tests and in their academic record (marks for the ‘bac’ in French + marks for the last two years at school + comments on the candidate) are invited to the oral tests from 17 April to 2 May 2021.
    Oral tests specific to TEMA: motivation interview, interview in English and individual creativity test.

It is essential to practise in order to optimise your chances in the competition. We strongly advise you to register on Parcoursup as soon as it opens. You will then have the benefit of all the training tools in your reserved mySESAME space (training booklet, methodological advice, etc.) and will be able to familiarise yourself with the tests as much as possible.

CHOICES ON PARCOURSUP: how to give yourself the very best chance
video

Admission decisions are made by campus. So, when you indicate your choices on Parcoursup, we strongly recommend you select both the campuses available as subsidiary choices (Reims and Paris), as there is no limit to the number of such choices you can make for the Concours SESAME entrance competition. You will therefore give yourself 2 chances of being accepted onto TEMA.

Admission to the 4th year of the course:

Profile: holders of a qualification at minimum level bac+3 approved (Business or Engineering School, L3/professional university degree) with a strong interest in management, innovation and digital environments.

Selection: dossier and interviews (motivation + English).

Admission to the 1st year

Selection: dossier and interviews (motivation + English).

Admission to the 4th year:

Profile: holders of an international qualification at Bachelor level (Business / Engineering School) with a strong interest in management, innovation and digital environments.
