An ambitious pedagogical project
A 100% English-language programme approved by the Paris-Dauphine Licence Council
The London curriculum is similar to the Paris Bachelor's programme (Paris-Dauphine Licence Sciences des Organisations). Classes are taught in English, primarily by British University faculty (UCL, King's College, LSE, Oxford University). In addition to their core disciplines (macroeconomics, microeconomics, management, private and public law, accounting, statistics and mathematics), all students are enrolled in language and social science courses.
High standards towards language proficiency
The focus on languages is important, as one of GBD London's goals is to ensure that students acquire tri-lingual professional proficiency by the end of the programme :
- The target for all our Bachelor students is to reach an English C1 Level at the end of their second year. Our Language Referent follows student progress throughout the academic year and schedules additional workshops and “English Clinic” as and when needed.
- The study of a 2nd foreign language is compulsory. Thanks to our partnership with University College of London, our students may choose among 9 language courses : Arabic, Dutch, French (for non-native speakers exclusively), German, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin, Portuguese, Spanish. Student level is assessed at the start of the academic year (beginners accepted) by the UCL Centre for Languages & International Education (CLIE). Our goal is to enable each student to progress by at least 2 levels in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL) scale.
We provide individual support and guidance to every student, enabled by the family-size of our campus. Classes are taught weekly in groups of 25 to 30 students. This helps our Lecturers establish links with each and every student and to identify their strengths and weaknesses. Regular Lecturers meetings are held to discuss student progress. Moreover, our students benefit from the support of a Coach specialized in education. Olivia offers regular collective and individual sessions to help students in their reflection about their personal and professional projects.
Dynamic campus life
Furthermore, we aim at offering an enhanced Campus life, thanks to :
- The organization of frequent events, either reserved to our students, or open to our Alumni Community. As examples: conference on the Art of Marketing (April 2017), conference on Fintech (March 2017), conference on Women in the Workplace (March 2017), conference on Entrepreneurship (November 2016), US election night (November 2016), conference on Brexit (October 2016), soccer match (October 2016), walk sheep across London Bridge (September 2016), welcoming programme (September 2016), student films projections (April 2016), conference on migrants (March 2016), conference on the Greek crisis (February 2016), World rugby cup match (October 2015)…
- Our dynamic and vibrant Student Societies
- The opportunity for all our students to join one of the numerous UCL Student Societies (see UcL Student Societies Website)
Hence, all over the academic year, our Dean of Students makes sure numerous extracurricular activities enrich the student experience and encourage students to take advantage of all that London has to offer.
Students involved in Dauphine London development
We encourage our students to play an active part in our development :
- 9 Student Ambassadors contribute to various communication activities.
- Our Student societies are frequently involved in our official activities, giving them unique experience and helping them to develop early various soft skills.
