The Contents : Lessons and the innovating Plan

No matter how the question of strategy, marketing, plan management, industrial property or market studies is involved, all the lessons aim at answering the various problematic subjects linked with the knowledge of the world of companies and the world of business.

The fictitious business creation plan must be sensible, credible and must be able to fit into the target market. Thus, it is concerned with a fiction which must be in keeping with reality. Sometimes, some of these plans result in real business creations (H3C Energies, Syride, ...).


The Plans :

The plans must not necessarily have a technological characterization. They must economically be viable, but not compulsorily lucrative (partnerships, fair trade, ...).

The Advantages :

* A training lasting two semesters and centred on one business developing plan.
* A sort of job through teams ranging from 3 to 5 students from Grenoble INP (second year of the engineering cycle, four years after the A-Level).A complete accomplishment of a business plan (creativity, plan management, market studies, strategy, marketing, accountancy, finance, law, ...) and an oral examination in front of a jury of professional persons who are expert in business and working development.
* A management of each team by a dedicated supervising teacher.
* A training made by teachers, all of them having a long experience in the world of companies.
