Grande Ecole

New school year (2nd round) in February:


Would you like to change pathways and take a new direction now? Do not waste a year: ISTEC offers you the opportunity to join its Grande Ecole programme from 1 February 2016!

An intensive teaching programme allows you to benefit from the same programme content as students that joined ISTEC in October and therefore not to waste a year.

The new school year (2nd round) can be accessed by candidates wishing to join ISTEC in:

  • First year (Baccalaureate obtained)
  • Fourth year (endorsed Bac+3 or 180 ECTS)


You will attend intensive compensatory seminars and you will also catch up on the first semester teaching on specific days.

Receive the teaching of the first year:

Acquiring the basic knowledge in management – Beginning of the personal career pathway

The first year allows students to acquire basic knowledge of commerce, marketing and management, discover the world of business and begin to create their personal and professional career plan. The teaching is supplemented with support and guidance on methods, time management, priorities management and teamwork.

Focus on a highlight:

Sectoral study: marketing and strategic analysis of an economic sector and of a product or a service. This study is the central theme of the acquisition of basic knowledge in marketing.

Personalised guidance:

Each student is individually monitored by a lecturer or a professional associated with the school. This coach will enable the student to:

define their personal and professional motivations,
identify their skills and personal qualities… and their areas of growth
use to their best advantage the teaching given and the experiences generated by the work carried out.

Work placement and sales and marketing activity in the field:
15 days (of business activity in the field) and the possibility of participating in the French Open in the context of sales or merchandising experience.
