School of Business

The SU School of Business has both an English and French section and offers programmes that open up exciting career opportunities to its graduates. All courses are taught by expert faculty who have direct experience of the corporate world.

The module-based curriculum familiarises students with the skills necessary to succeed in a business career, blending theory and classroom learning with individual research, and the acquisition of direct professional experience through internships. Programmes aim to develop students’ understanding of the global business environment, entrepreneurial business development and business decision-making.

During classroom study, students acquire and develop analytical and synthesis skills through a range of differentiated learning tasks. Through a combination of case studies, individual and group research assignments, student-led learning and attendance at conferences and seminars, students develop strategic skills needed for effective performance in business.

Each module is evaluated and leads to the acquisition of ECTS credits.  At the end of the programme cycle, the student writes a dissertation for which he/she is assigned a mentor. The topic of the dissertation bears on one of the subjects covered during the curriculum and, at both Bachelors and Masters level, an oral defence of the dissertation is done in front of a jury made up of two or more professors.

SU thesis requirements at doctoral level can be found in the current Doctorate programme brochure (available on request).
