It is addressed at young students who have completed their SECONDARY EDUCATION (high school) and would like an education in business management, with particular emphasis in the areas of marketing, international business and negotiation.
The Bachelor in Management prepares competent professionals who successfully work in the different areas of a business. The future employability of students is the key principle that steers all educational activities.
The curriculum is characterised by:
Its internationality: includes the rare opportunity to study each year of the programme in a different country and requires students to learn to communicate in other languages.

Mandatory work experience each year of the programme.
Teaching methods are varied and combine presentations, lectures by professionals and researchers, workshops to develop managerial skills, working sessions with case studies, and intensive use of teamwork and project development.

Unconventional methods are also used, including evaluation of participation, peer assessment and self-assessment. Ongoing monitoring is essential for assessing how well skills are being developed.

Ethics is a core value of Toulouse Business School, and its programme includes a special Public Service module that aims to promote students’ sense of responsibility.
The Public Service module is a 50-hour activity (not defined in the conventional calendar) through which students in the basic cycle provide service in usually non-profit organisations.
This subject is designed to make students aware of the actual situation of our society and to show them how to manage and direct an association whose product is people’s welfare.
At the end of the module, most students believe that this activity has provided them with personal added value. Approximately 30% of students continue with their public service after completing the 50 hours required officially.
