Personalized Business Education for Global Impact
For every degree that we offer at BSL, we focus on personalized education for global impact.
Personalized education has, at BSL, a double bottom-line. We have a personalized approach to what we are teaching and to how we are teaching it.
Our education also aims for global impact.
We want all our students to have the capacity to understand and address today’s and tomorrow’s challenges in business and society. Our graduates are doers who can change the way business is done, whenever it is needed, to have a more significant impact on their future professional roles.
To achieve this goal, our teaching is built around three main pillars :
- The transfer of the most up-to-date business knowledge, adapted to the evolutions of business operations and strategy in a globalized and digitalized world.
- The understanding of the implications on all businesses of the two major global megatrends, shaping business transformation today: Sustainability and Digitalization.
- The development of our students’ entrepreneurial mindset and skills, which they will need to become doers and be able to take action to have the most significant possible impact in their future roles in business.
Education for global impact means in our different programs that:
At the BBA level – AQUIRE
At the BBA level, we help students acquire the business skills, the entrepreneurial mindset and the understanding of the megatrends shaping today’s world to help them contribute to making an impact in business.

We take into account the individual talents, interests, and situations of our students, by adopting a specific approach towards personalized education. We have a personalized approach as to what we are teaching and as to how we are teaching it.
At the BBA level, personalized education means:

At the DBA level, personalized education means:

They receive personalized feedback on their research from other faculty from our Doctoral School during our Doctoral Acceleration weeks. They benefit as well from one-to-one coaching sessions during their Doctoral Journey, with the Executives of the doctoral school.
- How we are teaching: We offer 4 different intakes because our students are senior professionals who cannot be bound by the classic academic calendars of universities. Our students are welcome to visit us and campus to work with their supervisors, but an on-campus presence is not mandatory. Our teaching is concentrated on a period of two weeks yearly, our Doctoral Acceleration weeks to help candidates accelerate their research.
