what are these new digital schools?


In France, only 3.5% of the population is truly digitally trained, according to the words of Cédric O, former Secretary of State for Digital. A report published by McKinsey is equally alarming: 9 out of 10 employers anticipate a skills shortage in their companies in the coming years.

In a context where skilled labor is scarce, companies – and entrepreneurs – no longer hesitate to invest directly in education to guarantee their long-term competitiveness. Business school, school of data or even bootcamp, training courses are multiplying everywhere in France.

Delta, a new generation business school

Founded by a group of entrepreneurs, Delta Business School aims to train “inspiring leaders of the new economy”. With a Bachelor’s degree (3 years), a Master’s degree (5 years from 2024) and continuous training, it is positioned at the crossroads of Business, Digital and Soft Skills.

The program is structured around four pillars – Product, Operations, Growth & Sales, Data – which give a “360° vision of the company”. The school, based near the Buttes-Chaumont, more generally, wishes to provide the skills adapted to a changing world by creating evolving and flexible manager profiles who will be drivers of business transformation.

To develop its training program, Delta Business School has partnered with recognized entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs: Thierry Petit (founder of Showroom Privé), Benjamin Chemla (founder of Shares and Stuart), Sébastien Missoffe (General Manager Google France) or even Catherine Spindler (deputy general manager of Lacoste) or Charles-Edouard Bouée (ex-CEO Roland Berger) have the mission of validating the educational axes each year.

They will make sure to validate a pragmatic educational program designed by seasoned entrepreneurs and experts working in the best innovative companies. Whether you want to become an entrepreneur, work in a start-up, in a growing company or in a sector in profound upheaval, this training provides the keys to adapt to all circumstances.

The next staggered start of the school year takes place in January 2023, with 30 students who will be selected.

Albert School, the school of data

Last May, Albert School formalized a first business training more data-oriented. Again founded by former entrepreneurs, it wants to create hybrid profiles between business and data. One of the founders, Grégoire Genest, confided to our colleagues from Les Echos: “We recruit graduates with a real affinity with mathematics, who are also attracted to the business world. They don’t see themselves becoming an engineer, but they don’t want to miss out on data and maths in the commercial sector either”.

Albert Business wants to develop a hybrid model between management and engineering school, which does not exist in France according to the founder. “The Grandes Ecoles offer courses of excellence […] but they have not evolved enough with a majority of scientific courses for some and not enough data courses for others”. The selection is done entirely online, the site specifies that a “good understanding of mathematical concepts is recommended”.

The next intake takes place in September 2023.

The Le Wagon and Iconoclass bootcamps, etc.

In recent years, intensive training – also called bootcamp – has developed rapidly. Among the success stories, we can mention Le Wagon, which is a 9-week web development training course with a start-up spirit. The center provides training online and in the largest French cities: 17,000 people have already gone through it.

On another vertical, the Iconoclass training is a great success. Above all, this school trains its students in sales. Business developer, Sales B2B, Sales Ops, so many openings to which its graduates can aspire after a training course over one trimester. Small specificity of the training: a method of financing which allows the reimbursement of the training to the student if he is not hired on leaving.
