Interview with the co-founder of Delta Business School

When and how was the idea of ​​Delta Business School born?

Thibault Savary

In mid-2021, my associates and I were then all working founding or executive positions in our companies respective, and we each make the same observation: the companies, and even more the start-up because of their recent existence, must be increasingly responsive to exogenous events that disrupt their business – The Covid is the best example to date – They must be able to reorganize quickly, even to pivot in their business model to continue to be competitive.

A company’s ability to reorganize effectively depends, of course, on its executive directionwho bears final responsibility, but also for profile of all employees present: more than ever, organizations need profiles returned from a business spiritable to dialogue and understand the challenges of all the functions of the company, to get out of the routine problems as soon as necessary, and eager to decode the unknown.

A unique opportunity to discover the establishments and discuss with the educational managers to ask them all your questions!

We are convinced that these profiles, which we can qualify asintrapreneurswill constitute, if this is not already the case, the heart of the recruitment target for companies in the years to come.

However, these intrapreneurs, when they exist, very often have 5 or even 10 years of professional experience because no training on the market prepares young students for this entrepreneurial spirit.

We ourselves come from the paths Large schools of commerce and engineering, we know their limits and areas for improvement. For us, theentrepreneurship should no longer be analyzed as one possible specialization among others, reserved for those who wish to create their own path. It is above all a fundamental skill, skilfully combining soft skills and management sciences, which will eventually become the main raw material for companies.

This is where the idea of ​​Delta Business School was born, to create training to reveal everyone’s entrepreneurial potential.

What is the concept of the school? What are its objectives ?

The objective of Delta Business School is to offer a learning path (eventually Bachelor and Master) forming profiles of evolutionary managersdrivers of the transformation of companies and their professions, as soon as they obtain the baccalaureate, by positioning its educational program at the crossroads of Business, Digital and Soft Skills. Based on the 4 pillars mentioned above, Delta’s pedagogy offers our students a 360° vision of the company and an exhaustive understanding of the issues.

How will the course unfold in 5 years?

In year 1 – The contractor is the Swiss army knife of his organization. He can be Financial, Technical, Marketing and Commercial Director at the same time. The objective of this first year is to acquire the fundamentals of the 360° company necessary for the design phase of the company while starting to learn its old entrepreneurial know-how.
This year thus provides an overview of all of the company’s functions (both Marketing and Financial) with a particular focus on the professions around the design and deployment of the Product.

In year 2 – It is about immersing yourself more in the shoes of a start-up leader by becoming familiar with the set of skills necessary to grow your business, and by perfecting their ability to convince, inspire and pitch through soft skills support.
This year reinforces the assimilation of the skills needed to acquire and retain customers, regardless of the sales channel.

In year 3 – The life of an entrepreneur is made of successes but also of failures! The final year aims to work on its areas of improvement and to deepen the managerial skills necessary to maintain the company’s performance over time.
You thus learn all the skills necessary to exercise a function of team leader while deepening your legal and financial expertise of the company.

In year 4 & 5 – The student will be able to choose to perfect his ability to exploit disruptions via the Master’s Entrepreneurship & Innovation or specialize in alternation in the digital professions selected during the Bachelor course.
