The questions are answered by the Program Director and a student of the Advanced Master’s in Digital Business Strategy during one of the previous years’ Campus Channel videos.
We have a corporate partner called Tessi, which is a software service company and they’re hiring, and everybody knows in the class that they are hiring. So basically, they are sponsoring the program, they are helping us with the live business cases and are also supporting the students with their questions. Last year, they even hired a student from the program. Also, students get a chance to meet many people and talk to them and exchange contacts. They are not actually corporate partners, but people that you can contact after the course and maybe start working with.
A student worked on an Air France project concerning airport digitization. There were three Air France projects, along with others, within the class last year. It’s basically a project that students do every year. They work in a group, which can have three to five or six people, and they are in contact with someone from the company who they work with. It’s like their client. You start this project at the beginning and work on it all the way till the end of your studies. We also have ten live business cases from big companies like Air France and Credit Agricole, to mention a few. These are real business cases that these companies are trying to find answers to. So, the students are actually helping them throughout the year and they will submit their report in June next year. But, they also have deadlines throughout the year. We have had some pretty good decision-making after some of the business cases last year. This experience can be validly listed on a CV once a student graduates. For instance, working for Air France does count for something.
