School of Impact (SOI) is a school that will start training from October 25th impact makers. Indeed, students will evolve in an ecosystem centered around environmental transition and sustainability issues.
The debate about ecological transition and global warming is gaining momentum these days. It is for this reason that institutions should train responsible managers with a real sensitivity to these issues.
Vincent Ducrey, president of School of Impact and co-founder of the HUB Institute, explains in a press release that it was through this realization that his school was born: “Our future Positive Impact Managers will benefit from training that is inspiring, innovative, theoretical and deeply committed to action. They learn how to transform organizations in the service of a more sustainable world. »
School of Impact: an innovative school with great growth ambitions
The ambition of the School of Impact is to educate young executives in the challenges of a more sustainable economy and how to manage positive impact. For this first promotion, the school awards a Master of Science Project Management, Innovation & Sustainable Development (RNCP Level 7).
Indeed, these issues are a much sought after item within companies facing a shortage of profiles trained for these requirements. Almost 500,000 vacancies will be filled in companies that have the ambition to combine economic profit with social and environmental performance.
The first class of School of Impact counts no more than 25 students who are determined to make a positive impact on the world of tomorrow. The school then aims to train 500 students, settle in 8 cities in the region within 5 years and develop at European and international level.
SOI: A pedagogy based on Impact Learning
School of Impact takes a interactive and participatory pedagogy that puts the learner at the center of the training. The student takes an immersive and experiential program (i.e. 450 hours of annual classes for MSc 1 and MSc 2) and becomes a player in the sustainable economy. Lessons are planned in small group project mode to promote peer-to-peer learning, interaction and practice. The first campus, located in Paris in the 8th arrondissement, guarantees a “promo spirit” focused on benevolence, sharing and the search for positive impact.
The work-study trajectory for the Master of Science Project management, innovation & development
sustainable is three weeks in business and one week at school in hybrid. Lessons are taught face-to-face and remotely.
The program is built around three complementary axes:
- Observe and Understand
- Start and innovate
- Implement and implement the positive impact
School of Impact: quality teachers and speakers
All School of Impact courses are taught by expert professionals in the field who work daily in the world of positive impact, as well as by reference teachers on the fundamental topics. SOI’s scientific council has about fifty specialists. Vincent Ducrey specifies: “Our school’s philosophy and creation has been born out of digital innovation, positive impact and sustainable action. We look forward to educating positive impact managers for the jobs of tomorrow, the ones that will revolutionize the way organizations think. »
