Since 2011, I have been the academic co-Director of CIFFOP International Human Resources Management Master's Degree at Panthéon-Assas University (Paris).
We welcome every year 25 students coming from all over the world and wishing to embrace an international career in Human Resources Management.
The program is practice-oriented and offers a good balance between theory and practice.
Managing a program entails to define its general strategy in terms of development and visibility, identifying the portfolio of speakers from the field and from the academic world to deliver top-notch contents. It also means making sure that the students are prepared to start their career with the right know-how and also a good deal of self-confidence, that we help them develop throughout the year through a coaching approach.
My teaching encompasses the following themes:
- Managing Transformation
- Learning expeditions at the headquarters of partner companies to our program (Suez Environnement, Tetra Pak, L'Oréal, EDF).
- Managing intercultural teams
- Research Methods applied to the individual dissertation
On such topics such as Leadership and Managing Transformation I do believe that the knowledge is on both sides of the room and that we all can contribute to the learning experience. I try to implement the principles of experiential learning in my teaching modules to help the students develop skills, knowledge and values from a series of experiences outside the traditional academic setting. My aim is to foster their reflection, critical analysis and synthesis. The gate is open for taking initiatives and engage intellectually, creatively, emotionally, socially and even physically on the learning process.
For a complete information on the program, have also a look at the video below, done with Campus Channel in January 2016:
