Organisational, social, economic and cultural skills (OSECS)

Today’s organizations rely as much on their scientific and technical advances as they do on their economic and organizational choices. For this, they need scientific and technical frameworks that are sources of innovation and capable of proposing and leading change. It is no longer enough to rationalize and coordinate well, it is necessary to get everyone to cooperate; it is no longer enough to program, command and control, it is necessary to influence and convince, discuss and adjust.

Address the need for agility

More fluid organizations need individuals who are more open to others and their environments. Curiosity and creativity, initiative and risk-taking, listening as much as hindsight and distance, flexibility as much as constancy and rigour, consideration for others and contexts and multidisciplinary awareness become essential assets.

To assert this identity, the course devotes 20% of its training time to the development of cross-disciplinary skills that are essential for developing innovative solutions in a complex world: OSECS.

The power of the pedagogy of experience

To this end, students are put in a position throughout their course of study to be active in order to appropriate the knowledge and not just receive it. By carrying out projects and reflecting on their experiences, they consolidate their scientific achievements and develop their operational capacities.

Three components

The different pedagogical dynamics of the OSECS are organised around three components:

1. Basic languages, language-cultures and digital skills,
2. Personal development and the construction of the professional project,
3. Understanding professional and business environments.
