An experiential pedagogy

Combining Academic Education with Immersive and Experiential Pedagogy

In a complex and changing world, where, for the price of an Internet connection you have access to the knowledge of humanity, it is essential to develop, beyond a base of fundamental knowledge, capacities of analysis, taking back and decisions.

The curriculum of the Grande École Program was thus thought of as a "trial-and-error" laboratory that allows the student to constantly confront the reality of the world of work and business.

Trying, daring, fumbling, beating, making mistakes and starting over,

Alone or in a team, so many steps inherent in the learning process and valued by IDRAC Business School through courses (reverse class), internships, associative life but also "Major Projects" or "IDRAC Defense" .

Research at the Heart of Pedagogy

The teacher-researchers inject their research into their training module. Thus, they allow students to have access to the latest scientific discoveries and to understand their concepts.

This allows students to move from experience to concept to theory.


  • By observing complex systems through a concrete situation.


  • By structuring the observation by the teacher to understand the process.


  • By the assimilation of the theoretical concept associated with the observed process.
