The spirit of innovation and the sense of entrepreneurship are instilled in Chimie ParisTech - PSL’s students throughout their studies, especially through learning formats that focus on the project mode. In addition, the school encourages students to join associations and participate in humanitarian and societal projects in order to develop a taste for entrepreneurship.
Third year entrepreneurship seminars
In addition to taking economics and management courses during their 1st and 2nd year, students also take entrepreneurship courses in their 3rd year. This program is taught in collaboration with the Paris-Dauphine University.
Over six days, this team work gives students the opportunity to work on an innovative project, to discover its legal dimensions (industrial property, etc.), to question the needs of their clients, to conduct a market study, to establish their marketing and financial strategy, to develop their relational skills and their ability to communicate. Their deliverable consists in writing and defending a business plan.
Students wishing to work in the field of strategic consulting can follow the Management Innovation Consulting program of the Engineering program.
