Pioneering a new type of school adapted to the new digital environment, La Web School has been established to train future managers with visions and skills that combine creativity, commerce and technology .
La Web School endeavors to establish a student/business pairing combining both knowledge and interpersonal skills. La Web School is a new type of management school with a mindset characterized by innovation, collaboration and immersion, while continuing to shine the light on gaining theoretical knowledge forming the very foundation of the expertise developed by each student.
In addition to a Management and Entrepreneurship programme, students of La Web School develop a digital “3D” vision: they chose a field of expertise from one of 3 key areas – DESIGN, MARKETING or DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY – in the form of a major and continue to acquire skills in the other 2 areas throughout the course in form of minors. The foundation or first year immerses the students in the three dimensions of digital culture and helps them determinate the discipline witch will thereafter constitute the field of expertise for the student.
Our goal is to enable each and every one of our students to fulfill themselves, turn their professional dreams into reality and became a stakeholder in this digital world.
