SUP'Internet is a private school teaching for Internet jobs which has opened in 2011. It is one of the schools of IONIS Group, leader of the private top school in France. I joined in 2011 the first class, of 86 students quite well distributed in the 3 bachelors that the school offers:
- Development and Technologies of the Web
- Creation and Design Web
- Business and Marketing of the Internet
As I decided to career as a Community Manager even before entering in the school, I chosed to join the bachelor Business and Marketing of the Internet.
SUP'Internet teaching methods is particular, for few reasons. First, it is a complete break with the French classic school system, very theoretical, since learning is through successive projects in the large majority of the subjects. It was exactly the kind of teaching I was looking for.
The school also enables a specialization from the first year, while following a core. Unlike other schools, we have learned basis in all the fields (ergonomics, development and design for instance) and each bachelor has deepened in its specific class. This versatility and the team work in different project through the whole curriculum teached us to work together and understand the core of each job.
This is especially true considering that the majority of the classes are made by professionals, who most have their own company. Therefore, they share with us the facts they face everyday. The curriculum is scheduled in partnership by a council with school representative and professionals together, in order to follow as best as possible the actual needs of the companies. The grade follows the European system of ECTS credits.
Last, the Enfin, la professionalization through many experiences we accumulate as the curriculum passes. During the first year, we must do an internship from 2 to 4 months in a company, followed by another one in the second year, of 3 months. Finally, during the third year we spend 4 days a week in a company. The rest of the time, we must chose a minimum of 12 workshops occurring the 2 last days of the week.
