The most important news for the start of the PSB school year 2021

For PSB, the resumption of classes is face-to-face, but remains heavily tinged by the legacy of Covid-19. The school has made the decision to maintain a proportion of distance (20/25%) for financial reasons. The first is that she believes the pandemic is not entirely behind us. But the main reason is, above all, educational: the pandemic is leaving deep traces in the organization of companies. Teleworking has become a reality in organizations. According to a study by McKinsey, more than half of employees now want to telecommute 3 days a week.

Business processes have changed and future managers must adapt and adapt to distance learning, a dynamic that PSB follows in its teaching. The school has planned increased support for students, and more specifically in the second year of PGE and Bachelor, as the students experienced a very atypical 2020-2021 year.

PSB in key figures

Today PSB is:

  • 4,377 students in 2021
  • 1,900 work-study students
  • +15% growth since 2018-2019
  • Budget of 43 million euros
  • 25% foreign students
  • 85% of students in Master Grande Ecole work-study programs

In addition, PSB welcomes new teacher-researchers, 36% of whom are foreigners. If the institution has made new recruitments, it is to consolidate research within the school and the programs and to boost the students’ experiences through scientific research projects.

The Paris School of Business has also signed a new partnership with HESAM University. It is a higher education society that has as a priority hybridization between technologies, arts and many other disciplines. This vision is fully in line with PSB’s path for excellence, which is divided into 3 main components:

The most important pillars of PSB’s 2025 strategy

The school relies on three strategic accelerators. The first isextended school. Before that, PSB can count on the strength of the Galiléo Global Education group, which offers schools in art and creation, management, multimedia and health. The goal is to offer an academic experience enriched with seminars that PSB students will be able to complete in other institutions in the group.

PSB will also focus on hybrid campuses. The school plans to move to the Claude Bernard campus, which covers an area of ​​20,000 m2, in the heart of the historic student quarter of Paris. The latter will be both a showcase and a research laboratory. The main aim is to take advantage of the synergy with other prestigious schools in Arts & Creation and in Digital & Tech in the Galileo group and thus offer an extraordinary student experience. The school thus positions itself by fighting with its own weapons. “Entering this school means entering a universe that offers a lot of possibilities”, stresses the school’s dean Philippe Jamet.

Finally, PSB wants to strengthen development of national and international academic partnerships. The establishment wishes to establish hybrid courses with schools in the Galileo Global Education group. Students will have the opportunity to choose à la carte seminars in universes that are as creative as they are diversified (luxury, art, entrepreneurship, etc.). The goal? Enable them to combine their management skills. Hybridization is at the heart of the school’s international development strategy.

The establishment wants to work in depth with the various courses and bring them to a higher level.

From their first year, PSB students will have the opportunity to confront an entrepreneurial project, linked to sustainable development or international. The keywords are: autonomy, support, hybridization and engagement.

PSB would like to work onlearning environment and student experience. This represents a very large project. The goal is for the school’s students to have an enriched experience in a stimulating campus and an environment that listens to them.
