General

Why Albert School?

Successful companies today have in common that they have a data-centric approach. They are said to be "data-driven". This is the case for companies like Microsoft, LVMH, Alphabet or Netflix, which are among the most innovative and fastest growing. This is only possible with teams trained in the language of data, at all levels and across all functions of a company. Teaching data - that is, mathematics applied to business - enables students to understand how to create value in this world transformed by technology.

What is data? Why has it become essential?

Today, data is everywhere. And in a digitally disrupted world, it has become indispensable for business. There is tremendous value to be gained from leveraging data, especially with AI. Improving operational efficiency, transforming the customer experience, controlling risks, or innovating are all possible families of uses. From these four families derive thousands of applications and opportunities in all organizations and all sectors of activity.

Two phenomena have made data essential to executive decision making. First, the rise of capitalism and globalization has made all industries hyper-competitive: the accuracy of executives' decisions is more essential than ever to generate growth, and even to monitor their company. But also, the explosion of computing power, of the capacity to store and circulate information provides managers with a wealth of data.

Some data numbers:

  • amount of data stored in the world in 2010 is 2 zb vs in 2020 64 zb and in 2025 +180 zb
  • Moore's law: doubling of the computing power of computers every two years
  • 5G will be 100x faster than 4G (autonomous cars, factories 4.0, personalization of the display in bus shelters...)

What is Albert School?

Albert School is the first school of excellence combining business and data. The school offers training courses with a 3-year bachelor's degree or a 5-year master's degree. The bachelor's degree is accessible after the Baccalauréat. Supported and financed by many renowned entrepreneurs, its ambition is to train the talents that the new economy needs, hybrid business AND data profiles.

What is the mission of Albert School?

Albert does more than prepare for a job. Our raison d'être is to train the talents that will make the difference. This requires a global understanding of how a sector or company operates, and the ability to understand, exploit and enhance the value of data thanks to unique educational partnerships with leading companies in their sector.

How many students can study at Albert School?

60 students will be admitted in the first class. Subsequent classes will have 160 students. The total number of students enrolled from the first to the fifth year will be 800 on the Paris campus.

Diplomas & courses

Is the diploma recognized by the state?

Albert School awards students who successfully complete the 3-year Bachelor's degree with a level VI RNCP diploma, which is a three-year degree.

It gives the right to 180 ECTS credits (60 per year) and thus to further study at the European level.

It allows you to apply for a Master's degree at a university by requesting recognition of equivalence.

What are the opportunities after graduating from Albert School?

The hybrid Business and Data skills of ALBERT SCHOOL graduates meet a strong demand from companies. The program promotes rapid career development by preparing our graduates for positions of responsibility in a wide range of fields, thanks to their skills in data and business. The Bachelor's degree offers a broad base of skills enabling them to work in technical positions such as data analyst, data scientist or data strategist, as well as in operational management positions in marketing, finance and supply chain.

Internships

Internships are a mandatory and essential component of ALBERT SCHOOL's pedagogy. They are part of the progressive achievement of the pedagogical objectives of understanding the business world, its application as well as the acquisition of professional know-how and skills.

These are all opportunities for our students to immerse themselves in the demands of a company, adapt their behavior, carry out assignments and projects in a specific context, and build their network of contacts and their career step by step. Private English classes are also an opportunity to learn how to write a CV in English and benefit from personalized interview training.

Can I choose my courses?

The first three years of study correspond to the Bachelor's degree. They are composed of a core curriculum in Business & Data. The choice of numerous projects allows students to go deeper into the subjects that interest them most (blockchain, marketing, finance, etc.)    

Students in years 4 and 5 choose their master's degree and therefore the courses taught ("Entrepreneurship", "Blockchain & Web3", "Finance & AI", "Marketing & AI")

Who are the stakeholders?

ALBERT SCHOOL's teachers combine a high level of academic excellence from the best French schools and a high level of professional experience.

The majority of our teachers have positions of responsibility in the business world. This allows them to deliver courses that are as close as possible to the reality of the working world. Coming from emblematic companies exposed to the challenges of data, they can deliver ALBERT SCHOOL's pedagogy in a business reality that they live every day.

What are the prerequisites to join Albert School?

We address students who have a real appetite for mathematics and who have the ambition to learn to solve complex problems and to develop mathematical thinking applicable to data, economics, and business. They do not wish to choose between business school and engineering school because they dream of a curriculum combining French mathematical rigor and Anglo-Saxon business sense.

They have a strong quantitative mindset, are curious about the business world, but are also motivated by a deep desire to work in a team.

I am not bilingual in English. Can I apply?

Many courses are taught in English. It is not necessary to be fluent in English, but some command of the language is essential.

What is the selection process?

To eliminate as much bias as possible, the Albert School entrance exam is a three-step process that is totally free and open to all through distance learning.    

  1. The first event is a short 2-minute online game that tests very short-term memory.    
  2. The second test lasts 60 minutes. It is designed to test your skills in logic and mathematics based on the speciality mathematics program of the general bac.    
  3. The last step is a 30-minute interview with the jury to get to know each other, to evaluate the candidate's ability to develop a logical reasoning to solve a complex open-ended question, and to allow the candidate to explain in English his or her motivation for joining the Albert School.

When will I get my results?

After each step of the selection process, the answer will be given within 10 days.

IMPORTANT: With the results of Parcoursup, the process has been revised to allow candidates to follow it and obtain an answer within 72 hours.
