Supporting students in their professional projects
The program aims to reinforce the employability of our students in a multicultural world, in constant transformation thanks to technological and digital innovations, but also influenced by new societal expectations.
In this context, we help our students find their professional path according to who they are, their aspirations, in a sector (traditional, new economy, market, non-market) or a form of activity (salaried or entrepreneurial) that corresponds to them.
For 5 years, ESTICE students are involved in an integrated and progressive program. They are accompanied by a multidisciplinary teaching team made up of professionals, entrepreneurs, academics, and international researchers.
Giving meaning to managerial skills
ESTICE is committed to research fields focused on giving sense to the development of managerial skills. The school has one researcher in line with UCL’s research strategies, in particular the “Business with Social Impact” chair.
This concerns managerial postures that have a strong echo in contemporary issues such as benevolent leadership or sustainable financial engineering. Carl Pitchford, Head of the 3rd year ESTICE program, is currently writing a thesis on responsible finance, which incorporates all aspects of the social and solidarity economy. Because of his international profile, he teaches courses in English related to his research topics: Social & Solidarity Economy; Responsible Finance; Entrepreneurship through Acquisition.
ESTICE also pursues research training, the use of pedagogical methods that foster cognitive engagement and motivation with a pedagogy focused on the development of social and practical skills.
