Why a hybrid business & data school?

"The world is changing,
education must change."

Chaque grande idée commence par un problème simple.

Pour les fondateurs Grégoire Genest et Mathieu Schimpl, il existe une réelle inadéquation entre les compétences délivrées par le monde de l’éducation et celles attendues par le monde de l’entreprise qui connaît sa plus grande mutation depuis une vingtaine d’années : l’arrivée de la data s’impose comme la clé du succès des entreprises qui ont opéré leur transformation digitale ou celles qui sont digital native, et souvent reconnues parmi les plus innovantes au monde (GAFAM, NATU).

Conséquence : 65 % des élèves qui passent le bac aujourd'hui occuperont un emploi qui n'existe pas encore d'après le Forum économique mondial.

ALBERT SCHOOL | Business & Data

FIRST BUSINESS SCHOOL ANCHORED IN DATA

Pedagogy

ALBERT SCHOOL develops an innovative pedagogical approach, focused on data, to make students accomplished
professionals of the new economy. ◆◆

ALBERT SCHOOL offers an education of excellence through a complete curriculum, divided between the quantitative spirit of data and the culture of business sense, hard skills and soft skills.

In the age of data, the school must prepare tomorrow's leaders to acquire the key skills of the 21st century. Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Youtube and the use of smartphones have revolutionised the world and the way we interact. Behind these platforms and concepts, there are new ways of communicating, doing business, teaching and understanding the world, which require a change of mindset.

The St. Albert School is developing an innovative, data-centric approach to teaching to make students successful professionals in the new economy. We ensure an effective education focused on case studies and operational knowledge. This approach allows students to develop new skills and to progressively specialise: the curriculum structured around business and data allows students to understand the concepts and tools - such as frameworks, structuring analysis - to make relevant data-driven decisions.

I CANDIDATE

ALBERT SCHOOL does more than train for a profession. The school prepares tomorrow's leaders with key skills: ◆◆

Collaboration

"Alone we go faster, together we go further." (African proverb)
At ALBERT SCHOOL, we train our students to work together to find solutions to complex situations
during our Business Deep Dives developed exclusively with our partners (Carrefour, LVMH...). In the age of data, group work is essential, whether it is face-to-face or remote. Knowing how to work collaboratively is an essential skill in education and later in professional life. Knowing how to collaborate implies a mastery of communication values, an aptitude for empathy and strong leadership. 

Complex & Open Problem Solving

Solving complex open problems is one of the most valued skills in business. Our daily environment is undergoing dramatic changes due to technological developments and climate change. Our students will have to face challenges in the future that require them to know how to define a problem, design and implement appropriate solutions. In such a context of change, leaders must be solution-oriented: solving complex problems is therefore essential to develop the ability to make decisions efficiently and quickly.

Critical thinking

ALBERT SCHOOL trains talents capable of thinking for themselves, capable of using tools, of gathering evidence, of processing data, of discarding it, of being critical. In a word, to make sense of them. Critical thinking, as a process of questioning information, is fundamental to making better decisions and understanding things through the reasonable and unbiased analysis, examination and interpretation of data in order to derive a usable and reasonable understanding.

Productivity

Productivity is the ability to create using the following skills: setting and achieving goals, prioritising needs, managing time, working ethically, collaborating and cooperating with colleagues and clients.

Pedagogy

Why is mathematics so important at Albert School?

We select our students and provide them with a high quality mathematics education.
Indeed, we are convinced that mathematics should be thought of as a collection of indispensable tools for thinking, analyzing and solving complex problems.

Mathematics, by the power of abstraction it requires, is a major lever for understanding the articulation of multiple dimensions - physical, social, economic, legal, political, ideological - as they present themselves daily to companies, at the most strategic level of their management.

We are living in the fourth industrial revolution marked by extraordinary technological advances. A recent report by the World Economic Forum indicates that the ability to solve complex problems will be the most valuable skill in the years to come. Lack of mathematical skills is the main obstacle to improving the power of abstraction, which is a key requirement for solving complex problems.

By reconciling French mathematical rigour and Anglo-Saxon business sense, ALBERT SCHOOL aims to supply rare talents and future leaders to the booming Tech ecosystem and promises its students numerous outlets, starting with the school's partner companies.

ALBERT SCHOOL is in CHALLENGES (April 2022): "The Albert School reconciles maths & business " ◆◆

In this issue of Challenges, 30 business leaders sign the appeal "Save maths" so that the subject regains its place in the "common core" of high school.

The photo article "The Albert School reconciles maths and business" presents the school's desire - through its innovative teaching approach - to reconcile maths and business: since data processing is at the heart of the transformation of companies, a high level of qualification in mathematics is required and taught during the courses.

ALBERT SCHOOL | Business & Data

ALBERT SCHOOL's Business Deep Dives

business deep dives

ALBERT SCHOOL's signature pedagogy, the Business Deep Dives allow to anchor the data issues in a business reality. ◆◆

The Business Deep Dives are built in partnership with leading companies in their sector, convinced of the urgent need to train talents capable of bridging the gap between business and data. Within the framework of these partnerships, the students of Albert School's Bachelor Business & Data programme work for 3 weeks on data sets made available by our partners, and interact with members of their teams who teach courses during the period. The work is carried out in small groups with learning to be validated individually and a collective report at the end of the cycle.

Our students thus mobilise several areas of knowledge (economics, finance, marketing, strategy, data) and know-how with the aim of developing a deep understanding of the dynamics of corporate life and the strategic levers available to them in the age of Data.

ALBERT SCHOOL does more than train for a profession. The school prepares tomorrow's leaders with key skills: ◆◆

The LVMH Business Deep Dive

Our students will be able to understand the functioning and challenges of a Group the size of LVMH thanks to very concrete case studies: the luxury sector, the continuous reinforcement of the desirability of brands in a context of growth, the challenges in M&A, the impact of the Blockchain on the Group's activities and many other subjects...

Carrefour's Business Deep Dive

Our students will be able to understand the keys to Carrefour's operations. They will learn about the positioning of the company and its value chain, the competition it faces, the challenges of customer relations, the logistical challenges, the cyclicality of sales, the development of e-commerce and the financial aspects of retail.

BCG GAMMA's Business Deep Dive

During the year, BCG GAMMA will contribute to the development of a "Business Deep Dive", the School's signature educational sequence.

WeMaintain's Business Deep Dive

Our students will be able to discover with WeMaintain's data teams the collection and analysis of data through the prism of the Internet of Things (IoT), in particular thanks to the modules installed on the campus elevators.

Our opportunities and expertise

Xavier Niel | Founder Iliad

"While French Tech is experiencing a meteoric acceleration, we now have a critical training issue to accompany this dynamic.
Our start-ups need professionals who speak the language of data; our unicorns are recruiting hundreds of them; our largest companies are imitating them. The launch of ALBERT fills me with enthusiasm. It is a great lever for our youth and the whole country.

ALBERT SCHOOL TARGETS 100% POST-CURRICULUM EMPLOYABILITY IN TRENCHING PROFESSIONS

The team

Albert School management ◆◆

Graduates of the best French schools (Ecole Polytechnique, HEC, Ecole Normale Supérieure), Grégoire, Matthieu and Mathieu are all convinced of the urgency of the emergence of a new generation of data-literate executives and managers, i.e. those capable of understanding, exploiting and valorising data.

They draw on their past experiences and difficulties in recruiting teams and rapidly increasing their skills in environments where reflection must be combined with rapid and precise decision-making.

Grégoire Genest, a graduate of École Polytechnique, created Neos, an augmented mobile payment application used by a dozen major groups (LVMH, Carrefour, etc.), then worked as an associate at Advent International. As Director of the School, he is the guarantor of the school's mission, to train the leaders of tomorrow's economy, by ensuring a spirit of excellence, collaboration and creativity. He ensures the continued motivation of the students, the driving force behind their progress and development.
