The Bachelor’s in Economics and Management is a unique multidisciplinary and rigorous programme. We combined the education excellence of Dauphine – PSL with elements of British University education, with our partnership with University College London (UCL)*.
The curriculum is intentionally broad to give our students a taster of different disciplines in Economics, Management, Languages and more…, which gives them time to define their ambitions. Studying in a multicultural environment, Dauphine London students benefit from the learning pedagogy of multinational teachers and lecturers, drawing from their experience and education received at some of the world’s best universities (Oxbridge, Ivy League, UCL, LSE, PSL…).
The focus on languages is important, as one of our goals is to ensure that students acquire trilingual professional proficiency by the end of the programme:
- The target for all our Bachelor students is to reach a minimum English C1 level at the end of their second year. Our Lecturers in English offer classes in small groups (up to 15 students) by level (from B2 to C2) and follow student progress throughout the Academic year. They schedule additional workshops and “English Clinic” as and when needed
- The study of a second foreign language is compulsory, in-house or at UCL*. Thanks to our partnership with University College of London (UCL)*, our students may choose from 9 language courses: Arabic, Dutch, French (for non-native speakers exclusively), German, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin, Portuguese or Spanish. Student level is assessed at the start of the academic year by the UCL Centre for Languages & International Education (CLIE), and complete beginners are accepted.
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.
- The study of a 3rd foreign language is possible in year 2.
* Please note that for 2021/22 newly admitted students who use the student visa route, this teaching partnership with UCL sadly needs to be paused during the first term of 2021-22 until we finalise our registration with the Office for Students. However, foreign language classes will be taught in-house to newly admitted students; and our Student Life partnership with UCL remains, including optional extra-curriculum foreign language evening classes. Please head to our dedicated page for newly admitted students to get the most up-to-date information about this.
We recognise that education is about much more than academics, it is also about the key components that help you succeed in the outside world such as Leadership, Communications and Emotional Intelligence.We are preparing you for a vibrant international career, giving you both the academic and personal skills to succeed wherever in the world you want to go.
The small size of our campus and our close-knit community allows us to provide individualised support and guidance and high contact hours to every student. Classes are taught weekly in groups of 20 to 30 students. This helps our lecturers to establish links with each student and to identify their individual strengths and weaknesses.Regular student follow-up meetings are held to discuss student progress.
Our students also benefit from the support of a Coach specialised in education, who offers regular collective and individual sessions to help students reflect on their personal and professional progress, as well as a mentoring scheme for help with Internship applications in their second year.
We aim to offer an enhanced campus life, characterised by:
- The organisation of frequent events, either reserved for our students, or open to our Alumni Community
- Our dynamic and vibrant Student Societies
- The opportunity for all our students to join the numerous UCL Student Societies (see UCL Student Societies Website) and be part of the vibrant, international London student body
Throughout the academic year, our Dean of Student Life organises a range of extracurricular activities and outings to enrich the student experience and encourage students to take advantage of all that London has to offer.
