La Web School Factory follows an action-oriented training methodology: academics and business are constantly intertwined, creating a permanent link between “learning” and “doing”. The school’s 300 students get ample hands-on experience and international exposure: they work on a minimum of seven projects each year with 30-plus partner companies, participate in up to nine months of cumulative internships and are required to take one semester abroad and 12 months of part-time programs with corporates and/or enter into incubation programs that help them develop and grow their entrepreneurial ventures.
The school offers post-bac +5 courses in design, marketing and digital technology as well as traditional business school classes. From Design thinking to branding, from algorithmics to strategy, from entrepreneurship to project management, La Web School Factory students discover a wide array of disciplines that enable them to have an impact in the business world.
The majority of courses are based on experiential models of learning – requiring students to tackle real projects, helping them build up their resumes as they learn – and the school constantly innovates on what a course looks like.
