Grading Philosophy

> Three grades are given to students:

- A personal grade (based on an individual quiz): 20%,
- A collective grade (based on the study of the business model of an
existing model of a new company, carried out in small groups of 3 to 4
students): 30%,
- A collective grade (based on the written and oral presentation of
the business model of a new company, carried out in groups of 5 to 6
students): 60%.

Course schedule

The course relies on the Business Model concept and more specifically
on the GRP model (see for more information). Firstly,
during an interactive lesson, students are asked to explain to each
other the different parts of a business model and, as a team, to
describe the business model of an existing company.

During three classes (4 hours each), students come up by teams of 5 or
6 with a business idea, they develop a draft business model to launch
the idea. Some personal work is required to complete the group work in
class. In particular, students may have to interact with potential
customers or suppliers in order to create the most realistic project
possible. The fourth class is dedicated to an individual quiz and the
preparation of the entrepreneurial project's oral presentation.

Finally, the oral presentation is conducted and ends with a discussion
with the teacher about the project presented.

Course type

- Interactive lessons based on flipped classroom method. - Self-study. - Oral presentation.
