5 MAJORS

Our program is aimed at research students wishing to professionalize their knowledge and at professionals wishing to establish economic links with different cultures.


Research has become the center of our attention and an essential objective that must accompany the student or professional from his first year at IS-DBA.
Our 5 majors are in line with and contribute to the achievement of this objective oriented towards the professional future of the student.

Every business creation project starts with an idea.

Whether it is born of experience, know-how, creativity or a simple coincidence, the idea often takes the form of an intuition or a desire that deepens and matures with time. 

 

The major “Research in Management and Business Creation” consists of translating into concrete, legal, financial and human terms the elements to be gathered to verify the profitability of a creation project. The different choices made concerning the nature of your product or service, the way to exploit your market and the management of your company require the development of certain skills, both technical and transversal.

The feasibility and viability of your project may depend on the existence of constraints. Depending on your project, you will have to coordinate the legal and administrative requirements (a prior operating license, a professional qualification, specific safety rules (ERP), health and safety rules, ethical rules…) with an external environment (first marketing and e-marketing strategies) and internal (human resources management and established management).

Whatever your activity, you will have to choose between declaring your activity as an individual entrepreneur, or creating a company. Then you will have to choose a legal structure adapted to your project. Any choice will have a certain number of tax, social and patrimonial consequences, which must be carefully studied.

The nature of the activity; the willingness to associate; the patrimonial organization; the financial commitment; the functioning of the company; the social regime of the entrepreneur; the tax regime of the entrepreneur and the company; the credibility of the company with respect to partners (bankers, clients, suppliers, etc.)… all these points, treated and structured by an adapted methodology, problematized, planned in detail, constitute a full-fledged research project, the first steps of a thesis for any entrepreneur.

UNIT GRIDS

The training is composed of 4 teaching units per semester. 

Unit 1 is a research methodology training unit. 

Unit 2 is a professional specialization unit. 

Unit 3 is a unit of disciplinary deepening made up of knowledge and skills that should be expected of a DBA holder in his or her field of specialization (for example, advanced mathematical models for the Finance and Risk Analysis specialization).  

Unit 4 is a unit that combines professional field practice (internship, salaried employment, business creation) and individual research work (project, thesis). 

The modules are divided into six semesters of 200 hours of training and 200 hours of professional practice. Each semester is sanctioned by 30 ECTS. The DBA corresponds to the validation of 180 ECTS.

Seminars and group work will be organized on a monthly basis. Workshops and individualized modules will be offered in several time slots (morning, noon, afternoon, evening)
