  • Objectives

    The Bachelor's degree in Economic and Social Administration (AES) directs students towards the private or public sectors. It aims at the acquisition of knowledge and skills specific to business and the functioning of public organizations.

    Multidisciplinarity is the hallmark of the AES degree compared to the other Bachelor degrees of the Faculty of Economics and Management (FEG). It is expressed through academic teaching, written and oral expression methodologies and also through the tools developed with the students during the three years.

    This learning of multidisciplinarity is a real asset for the continuation of studies in Master and for professional integration. The AES Bachelor's degree aims to closely associate knowledge in economics, law, management and social sciences, and focuses precisely on the mutual and complementary contributions provided by these disciplines. Multidisciplinarity goes hand in hand with methodological requirements specific to each of the disciplines.

    Finally, since the reform of health studies, within this Bachelor's degree, you can follow a course with a minor health option: " the Bachelor's degree with Health Access Option (LAS) ", which allows you to apply for the health fields that interest you and integrate a 2nd year of health or continue your Bachelor's degree.
