How does Albert School compare with other business and engineering schools?

Albert School is a school of excellence. The admissions process is selective. Fewer than 10% of applicants were admitted last year, and the majority of those admitted choose to join Albert School, even though most of them have also been admitted to other prestigious French or international establishments.

What is Albert School's ranking?

If Albert School were on Parcoursup (whose data is public), our courses would rank in the top 5% of the most selective schools.

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?

The total number of students enrolled from first to fifth year will be 600 on the Paris campus.

How is your teaching approach innovative?

Albert School has developed an innovative, data-driven approach to teaching, to turn students into accomplished professionals in the new economy. We guarantee an effective education centered on case studies and the acquisition of operational knowledge. This approach enables students to acquire new skills and gradually specialize: the curriculum structured around business and data enables students to understand the concepts and tools - such as frameworks, structuring analysis - to make relevant data-driven decisions.

Albert School's innovative pedagogy from the first year onwards offers a hybrid training program that combines the best of engineering and business schools to train tomorrow's leaders, thanks to its academic excellence and professional orientation:

1. the removal from curricula of anything that strays too far from knowledge and skills useful in professional life (goodbye theoretical physics and 12th-degree equations)

2. the development of soft skills from the very first days: understanding and learning the codes of the company, knowing how to be, knowing how to do. Teams from the Boston Consulting Group, one of the world's most prestigious consulting firms, spend 15 days with students to teach them the codes: how to dress, how to write an e-mail, draft a document, give an oral presentation, methods for breaking down a problem...

3. learning with the best teachers from the top business schools (Polytechnique, HEC, Centrale, ENS, Sciences Po...) in groups of up to 40 students. These teachers are mostly professionals who hold positions of responsibility in major companies, investment funds, institutions or startups. These teachers practice what they teach in their companies on a daily basis. They are at the cutting edge of the latest developments in their field.

4. apply what you learn: business deep dives: in continuous cycles throughout their studies, students take part in 3-week case studies, in addition to their coursework. At the beginning of the cycle, students work as a group to prepare an interview with a member of the partner company's executive committee, who at the end of the session unveils a practical case with a data and business counterpart to be solved together. This is an opportunity to combine mathematics, data and business to solve increasingly complex open questions, accompanied by professionals from our 50 partner companies.

5. Group work and peer reviewing are cornerstones of Albert School pedagogy. Groups are often imposed, just as in the real world of business, and you don't always get to choose who you work with. Learning to identify the strengths and weaknesses of your teammates and yourself is an essential part of preparing for the world of work. Companies prefer cooperation to competition, which is why students work in groups, particularly on Business Deep Dives, and change groups every 3 weeks. Students also take part in the assessment of their fellow students and are themselves assessed by their peers, in addition to being assessed by the teaching team on certain assignments.

Does the school have any associations?

Yes, Albert School has its own BDE, sports club, cultural club and junior enterprise, which together organize a wide range of events for students and sometimes external guests.

How much time should I allow for homework?

This depends on the week, your work rhythm, your organization, and your teammates in the various work groups to which you will contribute. On average, plan to devote around 10/15 hours to personal and group work.

If I find that the specialization I chose in Master 1 doesn't suit me, can I change it in M2?

Around 55% of the Master's program consists of a core curriculum. If the specialization taught in M1 doesn't suit you, you can change to another in M2. To do so, you'll need to explain your choice to the teaching staff, and be in a position to catch up on the fundamentals of the courses you didn't take in M1 during the summer vacations.

Do you work in teams? If so, how many people are involved?

Work is either personal or group-based. Group work is an essential element at Albert School. The emphasis is on collaborative work, particularly during BDDs, which generally involve groups of 3 to 5 people.

My dream is to create my own start-up. What does the school offer to support its students?

Albert School's teaching, pedagogy and ecosystem offer a privileged setting for student entrepreneurs. Half a day a week is dedicated to the realization of free individual or collective projects, such as the creation of a startup. Many members of the administrative and teaching staff have already worked on or founded one or more startups, or work or have worked in investment funds. So many opportunities to get advice on your projects and a privileged network to help tomorrow's unicorn startups blossom.

These days, I see a lot of companies looking for human qualities such as team project management, management skills and convincing people. Does Albert school offer coaching workshops?

Albert School is a permanent coaching workshop.

- During their 2-week induction period, students spend 20 hours with Boston Consulting Group consultants, who provide them with a wealth of tips, codes and best business practices.

- Course content focuses on knowledge that is invaluable in professional life (goodbye theoretical physics and 12th-degree equations).

- 90% of the teaching staff are members of company management boards, consultants or entrepreneurs, who instill business methods and codes at the same time as teaching theoretical knowledge.

- The Business Deep Dive every 3 weeks is a coaching simulation: 3 weeks to answer a complex business question based on millions of lines of data in a group for presentation to a panel of professionals.

- Khôlles (mentoring), in groups of 4 or 5 students with a mentor, are an opportunity to review and apply what you've learned.

When can I do an internship in my Bachelor's program?

During the first 2 years, a summer internship is encouraged. A 6-month internship in France or abroad is compulsory in 3rd and 5th years (excluding sandwich programs).

Admission procedure

I don't have any grades for Terminale yet, can I still apply?

As places are limited, we advise you to start the admission process as soon as possible. You will be able to submit your report cards for the last few semesters, as well as your baccalaureate / diploma transcript at a later date.

I wanted to complete the application form but I don't have all my report cards. So I'm blocked on the site to continue my application. What should I do?

In fact, the online application platform has been designed so that you can only validate your application once all the required elements have been uploaded. If one of the requested documents does not apply to you (for example, your report cards are semestrial and not quarterly), upload the same document twice. The jury will be able to make sense of it, or will ask you for additional information when examining your file.

I have an average record that doesn't reflect my real level (illness, accident, double curriculum....). Can I make up for this at the oral?

Give it a try. Your determination can only be an asset to your application. It may not be enough, but it's an excellent start. We've already admitted a few candidates with average records who excelled in the online logic and mathematics test and the admission interview.

I don't have any report cards for this year yet. Can I go through the admission process?

Yes, the site has been designed so that you can only validate your application once all the required elements have been uploaded. If one of the requested documents does not apply to you (for example, your report cards are half-yearly and not quarterly), upload the same document twice. The jury will be able to make sense of it, or will ask you for additional information when examining your file.

How does the math test work?

The test is designed to assess your ability to develop logical and mathematical reasoning, and lasts 40 minutes. The more correct your answers, the more difficult the test becomes. So hang in there!

I'd like to visit the school or have a personal interview. What should I do?

Many events are organized on campus.

To consult the list of provhain events, go to this page: https: // eligible, you can also take advantage of a personal appointment on campus.

My parents and I would like to visit the school and get an interview. How do we go about it?

Numerous events are organized on campus, open to candidates and their parents. To consult the list of upcoming events, go to this page: https: // you are eligible, you can also take advantage of a personal appointment on campus.

If I fail the math test, can I still make up for it at the oral?

I encountered a problem during my online logic and mathematics test. Is it possible to redo it?

If you have encountered a problem during the test, please write to us at and we will investigate your request as soon as possible.

What is a motivational interview?

The interview consists of 3 parts: getting to know you, a brainteaser which is a logic exercise, and finally an oral presentation of your reasons for joining us in English.

I don't have any cover letters to back up my application. Is this a disadvantage?

It's a good idea to add any elements to your file that you think may be relevant to your application: transcripts, language certificates, diplomas or letters of recommendation from teachers, internship supervisors, etc.

Is it essential to master mathematics to join the school. I have a specialization in English and Humanities Literature Philo and a very low level of mathematics.

At St. Albert School, mathematics and data science are at the heart of the curriculum, alongside other subjects taught in business schools. Mathematics accounts for over 100 hours per semester, or 9 hours per week. A love of maths is therefore highly recommended to thrive at Albert School. The entrance exam for the Grande Ecole Program includes a logic and mathematics test. The test is free and 100% online. You can take the test to see if you have the level: https: //

Should I register on Parcoursup?

ALBERT SCHOOL is not included in Parcoursup. Like other schools of excellence, Albert School has chosen not to go through Parcoursup and offers you to apply directly to the school.

We want to give priority to the human relationship: this means being able to talk together to answer all your questions during the first telephone conversations and to meet you during an interview in order to get to know you and to accompany you in your higher education project.

When and how can I register?

Registration will be open, you can register directly online on our website.

What level do you need to be to be admitted to the Albert School?

The Albert School curriculum is demanding. The selection process is designed to ensure that admitted students have the necessary abilities to graduate. We seek to understand your potential.

The choice goes both ways. We encourage you to ask us questions to ensure that Albert School fits your career plan.

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 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 and is completely free and open to all.    

  1. The first step is a 40-minute math test. It is designed to test your logic and math skills.
  2. The second step is the analysis of your file (report cards, cover letter, letters of recommendation...).
  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.

Admission to Msc begins directly at the second stage.

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.

If I am admitted to the Albert School, when do I have to make a decision?

Congratulations, you have joined the club of candidates selected to join the Grande Ecole Program or the Bachelor's program! Choosing your school is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. If necessary, talk to your parents, teachers and friends to help you make your choice. There is no time limit. Your place is guaranteed for a period of 10 days following the notification of your admission. After that, your enrollment will be accepted on a space-available basis.
