Djagora Academy® Finishing School

 

The rise in unemployment is having a major impact on young people in higher education around the world, especially those who have followed a course in public education. This constitutes a major obstacle to economic development. On the one hand we have companies looking for talented young people with very specific skills, on the other hand we have more and more young people who choose higher education courses by default or by spite.

The aim of the Djagora Academy® Finishing School program is to accelerate their employability. It is mainly intended for students who are recent graduates or at the end of their Bachelor’s, Master’s or Engineer’s degree programs.

The DjA-FS program is based on 3 essential pillars

  • The savoir-être
  • The know-how
  • The realization of prototype

Over a period of 5 to 6 months students will develop all the skills sought by employers by putting into practice all the theoretical knowledge learned during their academic course.

Each student will have the opportunity to practice their skills in “critical thinking” by the design and written formalization of a real problem in project, the mobilization of all stakeholders through training Leadership, communication around of the project through training in Digital Marketing, project management thanks to SCRUM Agile, teamwork thanks to the Leadership immersion camp during the integration week. Finally, the entrepreneurial approach through participation in competitions for startups and trade shows. Students who have participated in the program benefit from professional certifications such as Six Sigma, Digital Marketing, and SCRUM Agile internationally recognized. Our students stand out by having had the opportunity to apply all the tools related to these professional certifications in real projects and in an environment that encourages risk taking. The role of mentors remains key in the realization of this program.
