Thanks to a new partnership between IESEG School of Management in France and Le Wagon, beginning this academic year Grande Ecole Program students at IÉSEG will be exposed to a mandatory online program. Via this method of delivery, students will learn to design and code a website, to put it online and to integrate third party services (payment, user forms, geolocation, etc.).
After completing the web development course, all Grande Ecole Program students will participate in a compulsory UX (User Experience) & UI (User Interface) Design course. This course will also be taught online. It will teach students the necessary skills to build an interactive web or mobile application ‘mock-up’ by respecting UX & UI design principles and by testing their prototypes through user tests.
In addition to these new opportunities for Grande Ecole Program students, all IÉSEG students will have access to two modules: “Data analysis with Python”, where they will learn to analyze data using the Python programming language, as well as “Automation & API”. This last course teaches them to interact with third party services by manipulating APIs (Application Programming Interface).
These four modules, entirely online and in English, were designed and will be led by Le Wagon, in close collaboration with IÉSEG.
Launch of a new “Tech and Leadership” Executive Education program
Even more exciting news is on the horizon for this new partnership, however. In a collaborative effort, the new partners will also launch a new Executive Education program beginning in 2020. This program will offer the much needed combination of leadership/management and technology/coding skills.
Caroline Roussel, Academic Dean at IÉSEG: “We are delighted to launch this partnership with Le Wagon, with whom we have already been collaborating in the framework of our ‘Digital Marketing & Innovation apprenticeship program’.
“This partnership is part of our digitization strategy, which consists not only of offering more online courses, but also in training our students to develop the digital and technological skills that companies require. IÉSEG School of Management and Le Wagon share a common vision of the evolution of transversal skills that companies expect, which will be the foundation of the executive degree program launched together in the next months.”
For Boris Paillard, CEO and cofounder of Le Wagon: “Being partners with IÉSEG, an innovative and rapidly growing business school, makes a lot of sense for us. Many of Le Wagon alumni come from business schools, and we know how much tech and management skills are complementary.”
