(*) Learning and Assessment Situations (LAS)
The LAS allow the assessment of the competence in a situation. This evaluation is carried out in accordance with all the elements structuring the reference system, and is based on the portfolio approach, i.e. a process of reflection and demonstration carried out by the student himself. As a set of actions, the SAE requires the student to choose, mobilise and combine relevant resources consistent with the targeted objectives. The challenge of an EAS is thus multiple:
- Participating in the development of competence;
- Supporting learning and the mastery of resources;
- Integrating self-assessment by the student;
- Allowing individualisation of learning.

(**) The portfolio approach
Sometimes called a skills portfolio or professional passport, the portfolio is a connection point between the university world and the socio-economic world. In this way, it responds to all the dimensions of the student's professionalization: from his or her training to his or her future as a professional.

(***) The Personal and Professional Project (PPP)
Present in each semester of the course and supported by all the teachers on the teaching team, the Personal and Professional Project is a structuring element which enables the student to be an actor in his or her training, to understand and appropriate the contents, objectives and targeted skills

From the 2nd year onwards, the student chooses a pathway and acquires a specific skill for the chosen pathway:

  • Management, Entrepreneurship and Activity Management (GEMA): DESIGN the value creation strategy & ensure the management and development of the value chain.
  • Management Control and Performance Management (MCPM): DESIGN management control tools and IMPLEMENT levers for continuous improvement of the organisation's performance
