Teaching and learning

École de Savignac offers programmes of excellence in initial and continuing education. Thanks to its unique educational approach, it trains managers who know how to combine expertise, creativity and teamwork in an international environment.

Always at the cutting edge, École de Savignac implements teaching methods based on :

  • The combination of theory and practice

  • Educational innovation

  • Personal development, building values, empowerment

  • Integration into the professional world

  • Courses developed on an international scale

THE COMBINATION OF THEORY AND PRACTICE

At Savignac, academic learning and professional experience combine to provide you with cutting edge knowledge in your field of expertise and a concrete vision of the operations you will have to manage at the end of your course. This link between knowledge and skills is the basic foundation of the School’s approach to teaching.

Our training courses focus on work placements :

  • Bachelor’s degree: 4 – 8 months of work placements as part of each year of the curriculum
  • MBA: 6 – 8 months of work experience.

At the School, you work regularly on concrete cases that companies are faced with.   Working as a consultant and accompanied by a team of experts, you are confronted with real professional challenges: you design and carry out market studies, business plans, analyses, and provide recommendations to the companies you have approached. It is by working on concrete cases that you become more skilled, independent and responsible.

INNOVATIVE AND INTERACTIVE EDUCATIONAL METHODS

The School regularly introduces innovative teaching methods and practices to maintain the excellence of its teaching. This approach is based on:

1. Interactivity

Tutors use different techniques, such as serious games, flipped classroom techniques, role-playing, project management tasks, etc.

2. Student co-development

Here, the knowledge and experiences of each person are taken into account and shared with the group. Work is carried out before each session and then students develop and enhance their skills during classes, group work and tutorials. Students therefore become actors of their own training.

3. Oral presentations

Oral presentations are a regular feature of our courses. They increase your communication skills and self-confidence.

4. Entrepreneurial learning

This is the promotion of an entrepreneurial spirit, giving students the confidence to put themselves forward, as per the School’s motto, ‘Dare Savignac’. This helps develop creativity, critical thinking, efficient problem solving skills and an understanding of the need for collaboration. All these skills enable the student to succeed, whatever their chosen path.

COURSES DEVELOPED ON AN INTERNATIONAL SCALE

At Savignac, you have:

  • the possibility of building an international career path through work placements and academic exchanges
  • international partnerships with numerous universities and hospitality groups
  • a dedicated person to inform you about the international arrangements, assist you on your trip and ensure follow-up during your stay
  • Erasmus+ grants for studies and work placements in Europe
  • ongoing language learning, native speakers, many modules taught in English, etc.
  • modules in cross-cultural communication and management.

GROUP WORK

The School emphasizes the importance of behavioural skills in order to ensure your professional success. By working in groups on the many case studies put forward by our partner companies, you will develop your sense of teamwork, leadership and public speaking skills.

Management in the hotel and catering industry is not limited to mastering theoretical knowledge. More than ever, it requires interpersonal skills. Savignac graduates are known in France and throughout the world for their unrivalled team management skills, their adaptability and their ability to handle new situations.

EMPOWERING STUDENTS

Savignac requires its students to adopt a professional attitude, both in the classroom and in life on campus.  You will gradually acquire the know-how and values specific to the hotel industry: dress code, sense of hospitality, sense of service, respect for others, cultural openness, etc.  You will take part in the day-to-day management of the campus: health, safety, entertainment, academic support, welcoming visiting lecturers, project management, etc.   You will be involved in the daily running of the campus and are given responsibility from the very beginning of your time at Savignac.

TEAM MANAGEMENT CONFERENCES

To support your professional and personal development, the School organises public speaking and team management conferences for both the Bachelor’s and MBA degree courses. These help you get to know yourself and to manage operational teams. These conferences are a highlight of life at Savignac which everyone remembers !

PROFESSIONALS AWARE OF THE CHALLENGES FACING SOCIETY

The School aims to meet the challenges of the future by training responsible professionals who are able to combine their social commitments with their economic objectives.  In order to nurture these responsible and conscientious managers, it has set up the project ‘Get Involved’.  This encourages students to rethink their view of the world by getting involved in a humanitarian, social, solidarity, ecological or community project.  École de Savignac prepares students to build a sustainable world.

60% OF OUR TEACHING TEAM ARE PROFESSIONALS

At Savignac, 60% of the tutors at the School come from the professional world. Therefore, you will benefit from the professional advice and experience of these experts. This makes our academic courses unique.
