Faculty

Valérie Fernandes Dean of the Faculty

The Faculty is made up of…

  • 95 permanent teachers, 74 of whom are in the field of Management
  • 89% of those specialising in Management hold a PhD (Doctorate)
  • 54% of those specialising in Management are international or have dual nationality

The Faculty is spread over our three campuses, La Rochelle, Tours and Orleans, and is firmly committed to Excelia’s mission:

  • to train students to become responsible professionals
  • to ensure sustainable employment
  • to contribute to the transformation of organisations and to the dynamics of its local regions

To achieve this, we regularly re-evaluate our pedagogical model. Therefore, the very essence of our profession as teachers, research-active faculty and educators is founded, first and foremost, on the creation of meaning and on the forging of links with both the student community and academic community, serving our local regions and working at an international level.

This requires taking into account the changing world, as it inevitably has an impact on both teaching content and learning methods, through…

  • incorporating the impacts of climate change into our curricula
  • new learning methods to prepare learners for new organisational approaches and future professions (artificial intelligence, Big Data, nomadism, etc.), through skills-based teaching 
  • strengthening of cultural awareness to help our learners find their place in a complex world.

Our Faculty is fully committed to all these objectives. Furthermore, educational innovation, in all its forms, is supported and nurtured by Excelia Lab. Research is also considered as key to pedagogical content. Furthermore, a skills development plan has been available to all Faculty since 2018.
