Do you want to combine your higher education at a major business school with work-study status? PPA Business School is your future school!

PPA Business School prepares for diplomas that are highly recognized by companies. These are bachelors, masters or MBAs that will make you a future leader in many professions and many fields, from marketing to management, from audiovisual to health.

And for this, PPA Business School has chosen work study. It is the first major post-baccalaureate business and management school exclusively on a work-study basis.

For you a “Advice and Placement” unit!

Within the Business Relations department, this unit, made up of expert placement advisors, has three missions: to guide and help establish a coherent professional project, to prepare recruitment interviews through simulation interviews, and to support the search for a hospitality business.

This cell accompanies you and coaches you. An individualized support program has been established by the company’s relationship manager. They offer a monthly follow-up, seminars on company search techniques, coaching sessions and professional conferences with actors in the labor market.

This cell does not work alone! It works hand-in-hand with the “Contract and Administrative Management” unit to facilitate monitoring and collaboration with companies hosting PPA students through the creation of contracts and other agreements between the school, the student and the host company. When your administration is well maintained, your training course can only go well!

For your information, work-study status can take three different forms within PPA Business School: the long-term internship agreement, the professionalization contract and the apprenticeship contract.

And to meet companies, nothing beats one speed meeting : its purpose is to promote “Student-Company” meetings. This event, which takes place three times a year, gives students the opportunity to connect with many company recruiters in one day. These meetings allow companies to optimize their recruitment interviews by making their choices faster and more accurately than through a CV. These pre-recruitment interviews make it easier for students to pass the CV barrier and allow them to highlight their skills and know-how.

Partner companies

They are famous because they are active in the essential sectors of the economy. In services, the company collaborates with Air France, Adecco, Aéroports de Paris, Manpower and La Poste. Are you more interested in distribution and trade? You can then land a contract with Carrefour, Decathlon, Galeries Lafayette or Printemps. In the world of banking and insurance, Allianz, BNP Paribas, Banque Populaire or Caisse d’Épargne could welcome you.

Media and telecommunications, it’s your thing! Maybe you want to work for Apple, Bouygues, SFR, Capgemini, TF1… There are so many!

We can continue the game with industry and public works (Sanofi, Peugeot, Vivendi…), the food industry (Heineken, Hediard, Coca-Cola…) and tourism and luxury (Chanel, Hermès, Accor…). As for communications agencies, why not apply to Havas or Publicis?

In any case, do not hesitate to consult the page with partner companies, it will give you prospects! https://www.ppa.fr/entreprises-partenaires.html

Thus, you will understand that the company is an important partner in training and education at PPA. Today, more than 3,000 of them trust the Network of Specialized Grandes Ecoles. The PPA work-study business school would like to thank the companies that actively participate in the training of future managers/entrepreneurs.
