The 'i Business Proficiency Course' (iBPC) is a collection of five different foundational modules, specially designed for students who need to acquire the essential knowledge in management to enroll into a business programme at Rennes School of Business or to explore the opportunity to sharpen their business skills for a future professional career.

The course is composed of five different modules that will give you essential but solid grounding on theoretical knowledge about business and management.

  3. Marketing. You will become familiar on strategic considerations for successfully promoting or selling the products or services your company is offering.
  4. Finance. How are companies valued, the origins and cost of capital, and how money flows around and the different points to keep in mind when organizing your finances are things you’ll learn in this module.
  5. Strategy. Here you will become familiar with the different ways to evaluate the context where a firm operates and how to keep those elements in mind when elaborating a plan to ensure the success of your firm.

Course Organization

  • For each of the five modules you will have 10 videos of around 10 to 15 minutes each. It’s extremely important that you see the videos, even them twice, stopping and reflecting on the different learning points you will see throughout.
  • After the videos there will be some mandatory readings. Make sure you complete them so you can finally take for each of the videos a 10-question quiz.
  • For each unit, a final test for the module will evaluate your knowledge. It’s important that you pass this test so you can obtain the certificate attesting your proficiency.
  • Once you have completed all modules with their 10 units each, you will have a final test.
