Troyes School of Design Like SCBS, this school is part of Y SCHOOLS. The Troyes School of Design offers 3 or 5 year courses, training designers to adopt a global, cross-cutting approach. Design is a tool of strategic analysis, which is where the real business challenge lies. Designers must be able to offer new scenarios to the company – and therefore to the user – in line with the corporate identity. The School of Design’s contribution to project creation on the MSc ICE is therefore a great opportunity!

How to be an entrepreneur

Each SCBS program includes awareness sessions. This is an initial chance to explore and talk to the lecturers from the Innovation and Entrepreneurship department. Each session is a unique opportunity to discuss your entrepreneurial desires, the ideas floating around in your head or the questions you need an answer to.

Many stakeholders in the local entrepreneurial ecosystem (incubator, technopole, directors, BPI investment bank, investors, etc.) visit the school to tell the students about entrepreneurial life and help them build up a network.

Hackathons, challenges and creative events, held both at SCBS and at the Aube Technopole in Champagne, help to match up student profiles with additional skills (engineers, designers, IT technicians, etc.) who could become their partners.
