Bachelor Degree

The Business Team Academy

The Team Academy program of the HES-SO allows you to obtain a Bachelor HES in Business Economics thanks to a different pedagogical model based on :

  • learning by doing: carry out your own projects to develop your competencies
  • team learning: learning from the experience of others
  • 21 competences: development of hards skills (project management, economy and society, finance, etc.) as well as soft skills (self-leadership, learning to learn, self-initiative, etc.).
  • 360° assessment: write a portfolio of competences highlighting your own learning path


Detailed information

The Business Team Academy is a program of the Business Economics Track launched in 2017 and inspired by the Finnish methodology “Tiimiakatemia”. Teampreneurs (students of the Team Academy) carry out real projects for companies or develop their own projects.

The projects will help develop field skills and generate turnover. This demonstrates the team’s ability to create added value for clients or partners.

In addition to this different activities will be organised:

  • Training session: students select the trainings they need to develop their skills. Completed by readings of their choice, this knowledge and tools will crystallize in the realization of the projects.
  • Dialogue session: twice a week, under the supervision of a coach, all students meet to share the progress of their projects and the knowledge acquired.
  • Learner trips: 3 weeks a year, the teampreneurs visit a university that is a member of the Team Academy’s international network and carry out practical projects in common with the students of the visited university.

During the training, it should be noted that, due to a different progression system between the Team Academy program and the classical track, the transition from the classical track to the Team Academy program and vice versa does not generate automatic equivalence.
