Friday, March 13th - 16h00

Dear students,

Following last night's speech by the French President, all schools and universities must therefore close from Monday, March 16th until further notice.

Aware of the school's responsibility and in order to limit the spread of the virus, Paris School of Business Direction Board and the crisis unit have decided to move all classes to distance learning starting Monday, March 16th, although no cases have so far been reported among students or staff. This decision was taken thanks to the mobilization of all the teaching and digital teams over the last few weeks to ensure continuity in learning.

All the courses will be taught remotely via the Blackboard Collaborate platform (same tool used during the strike). The links to your virtual classes for next week will be sent to you today by your student coordinator.

The internal and external events (Business Game, Masterclass...) will also be suspended or taught in distance.

Exams are being maintained. The modalities (remote or at school) will be communicated to you on Friday, March 20th.

Students who are currently abroad (internship or exchange) will receive a specific communication from the international relations department. Most of the academic partners will offer remote alternatives to validate the exchange in case of return.

For your information, most of the Paris School of Business team will be present on the Campus next week to ensure optimal monitoring. Campus therefore remains open for the school's teams, even though it is no longer authorized to receive students. On this last point, I will ask you to behave on your best and not to come to school, starting next Monday morning, until further notice.

All your teachers were informed of these decisions this morning and are currently reviewing their teaching approaches in order to adapt to this particular mode of teaching.

However, distance teaching does not solve all the issues.

Indeed, many issues remain under consideration at the moment. For example:

  • How to manage certain courses that do not lend themselves to distance learning (Master class, Business Game...)?
  • How are internships going to be run?

All these questions do not necessarily have answers yet, but we are currently working on them with your teachers. We will get back to you on this subject as soon as possible.

As the situation evolves, we will communicate on the extension of these measures or the return to normal activity.

Please check this page on a regular basis.

All Paris School of Business is aware that this period is not easy and can be a source of concern for some of you. We fully understand this.

You can be assured that we are doing everything in our power to provide you with pragmatic solutions in order to face, collectively and in solidarity, this unprecedented situation.

Your contact within the Paris School of business remains your student coordinator.

For any emergency situation, please send an email to: covid19@psbedu.paris

Armand Derhy and the Direction Board

PGE 3/M1/ BACHELOR/BBA Monday, March 16th -5.00 P.M

Our country has entered a new phase in the management of the COVID-19 virus. In this context, the management of Paris School of Business is getting organized, and anticipates in order to face the situation. The well-being of our students, as well as your academic year is of the utmost importance.

Paris School of Business is paying close attention to statements from the government and from The World Health Organization and is following the guidelines from these agencies and local health department. 

In order to monitor as closely as possible the situation of the whole cohort, we thank you in advance for answering our questionnaire whose web link is available below.

Several cases have been identified:

- You remain in your host country :

  1. Courses are offered online
  2. The courses are given in the classroom.

- You wish to come back to France (or you are currently in France) :

  1. You can take your host university's courses online from home
  2. You will follow the courses at PSB from May 11th to July 17th (Courses in English; no extra charge; 30 ECTS; face-to-face or distance learning depending on the evolution of the situation).

NB: Degree or certificate seekers will have to follow the instructions of the university if they still wish to claim the partner's diploma. PSB will provide the courses and exams to move on to the next year but will not be able to deliver the partner's diploma or certificate. 

We do not have answers at this time concerning the organization of exams, we are discussing this topic with our partners. Be assured that an alternative solution will be proposed should it be not possible to travel back.

We would like to remind you that everyone should adopt a responsible attitude in case of symptoms (mainly fever, cough) and to adopt barrier gestures, and in particular:

  • Wash your hands very regularly with soap and water or hydro alcoholic gel.
  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow.
  • Greeting without shaking hands, avoiding hugs.
  • Use disposable tissues.

It is also necessary that all students inform their international presence on the government website: https://pastel.diplomatie.gouv.fr/fildariane/dyn/public/login.html.

Here is the link to the government where you can find the country files to consult: https://www.diplomatie.gouv.fr/fr/ 

We are aware that this situation is complex and delicate and that the situation is evolving from day to day. Therefore, we thank you for your patience with the information we are providing and consult this webpage regularly.

Message from Monday, 30th March

Dear students,

We are at the beginning of a third week of confinement, and as we must continue to spare no efforts regarding health safety and vigilance, I also felt it was important to share with you some news about the school.

I would first like to thank PSB teams of teachers, members of the administration and the technical staff, who have been working tirelessly since March 16th to allow us to carry on our educational program. To this day, and since the beginning of the confinement, nearly 97% of classes have switched to be taught 100% online. Some would argue that this is not much compared to the medical front line. But this is the battle we are in a position to fight - and we intend to do so without compromise, because there is no unnecessary or superfluous battle in such a war.

My thoughts are with the international teams who support the 516 PSB students that are abroad every day (to this date, 326 of them have come back to France). The level of anxiety of these students who chose to stay in their country of education and are therefore away from their family is potentially and naturally a source of additional strain.

My thoughts are with the international students officially registered at Paris School of Business who have come to live an experience in France, more than half of whom have been forced to shorten their stay in order to go back to their home country, to their families.

My thoughts are with the students who started the year in October and who, after a first semester disrupted by strikes and the yellow jackets movement, promised themselves to commit during the second semester in order to make up for their missing credits.

My thoughts are with the students who started the school year at PSB in January and who could not get the chance to meet their schoolmates, teachers and the members of the office staff, and who might be worried about how this unprecedented and disturbing year will develop.

My thoughts are with the students who chose a work/study training program, and whose experience is now limited to shifting from one platform to another.

My thoughts are with the students who have embarked months ago on the BDE (Students’ Office) and the BDS (Sports Office) campaigns and whose field actions have been cancelled or postponed indefinitely. We have organized so that the votes can still take place this week, online.

My thoughts are with those who despite a complex and sometimes health endangering environment, do their utmost to stay on course as far as possible, and who demonstrate a powerful resilience, every day, as to powerfully make light of the true threats of a yet terrible plague.

To all these students resisting, fighting and keeping on living, I say that the entire community of PSB is with you. That we are committed to maintain our scholarly and operational excellence using the strength of Galileo, our group, and despite such an environment, so that tomorrow, you can still benefit from the value of your training in order to bounce back quickly and integrate the world of work.

To those who might feel rightfully shaken by these exceptional circumstances, a psychology unit will be put together within the next few hours, the contact details of which will be available on the Covid-19 newsfeed on PSB website.

I wish insistently to remind that though scholarly excellence remains of the essence, it comes with the deployment of new adapted assessment methods, particularly for exams, the ways and means of which are available on the link below. In any case, support and benevolence are and will remain our prime motivation. None of you will be prejudiced more than they already have been by this pandemic in terms of stress, constraints and sometimes sadly, pain.

Once again, nobody chose to impose these circumstances on us all. As we do not even consider that this lethal virus, which already disadvantages us, might become the instrument of an unacceptable handicap in your training, we will demonstrate an even greater resilience, without any compromise.

I have a final thought: it seems that the difficult times we are facing, in this war against the invisible, are about to last a few more weeks. We must not lower our guard. It would be like finding in favor of this dreadful virus. You can write your own future using the ink that is your personal resilience. Together, let’s write these next pages, focusing on what comes next, with strength and determination. Then, we will feel useful. Then, we will continue to make progress. Then, we will become stronger.

A wonderful week to you all.

Armand DERHY, Ph.D
Dean of Paris School of Business

Message from Monday, 23th March

Dear students,

No need to dwell on the current national and international health situation you are already aware of. That this emerging crisis taking with it all in its path adds up to everyone’s anxiety, the reasoning behind which sometimes escapes us. But the one thing we can do is refuse to suffer it, hold our head high and act in order to grow up and make progress. It was important to me to speak directly to each and every one of you to let you know that we are mobilizing completely. To confirm that these exceptional and unprecedented circumstances that we are facing right now, as serious as they may be, should not, in any case, diminish our will to be at your side, nor should they handicap your training in any way!

Yes, we do have to adjust, and for as long as required by the sanitary conditions. During the quarantine period, we will continue to work, individually and collectively mobilized in order to do what we do best: understand. Understand in order to rise. Understand in order to be better. Understand in order to make progress. In such an environment, Albert Einstein and his ever-incisive thoughts appear once again very lucid to me: “Any fool can know. The point is to understand.”

Since Monday 16th, we decided to teach 100% of the classes remotely. Our online courses are available via Blackboard, one of the best Learning Management Systems (LMS) in the world. This way, every piece of information is centralized through this LMS which allows us to continue our activities.

There might be failures, beam interruptions, bandwidth throttling, in short, technical issues that will probably happen… This is only normal when Paris School of Business is not the only school switching to an online mode therefore congesting the traffic. And that does not include the companies that are more and more remote working as well, as far as may be possible. These are just material epiphenomena that can be overcome compared to you being, I hope, safe in the comfort of your home and away from any potentially detrimental contacts. For over a week now, our entire staff has been mobilized with only one goal: helping us fulfill our mission which is helping you pursue yours.

Therefore, among the 516 students on a program abroad (for a year or one semester), about half of them came back to France. PSB is also adjusting on this matter. The International Relations office is still mobilized in order to answer each of your questions online, in accordance with the regulations set by the Ministry of Higher Education and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. At the same time, our teams are guiding half of the international students enrolled at PSB who chose to go back to their home countries and therefore follow 100% of the courses online. We also make sure that these students can carry on their training in an asynchronous way in order to take the time difference into account.

Last week, already 97% of our classes were taught online. We even succeeded in carrying out the Business Forum, Masterclasses, leadership seminars and online Business Games. The feedback from your professors regarding your good morale and your enthusiasm are proof that our actions make sense and that we must expand them.

To answer any legitimate question you may have regarding the Mid Term evaluations procedures or the final exams, we dedicated a new web page we recommend you visit regularly. We also communicate regularly through social networks in order to give you live information about the school.

Of course, there are still some questions that remain unanswered. Our teams have not been able to answer every question you had these last few days, but we are working on finding solutions and we will. Such is the case, for instance, of students associations and of the BDE (Students’ Office) and the BDS (Sports Office) campaigns and other events run by associations that had to be postponed, as it is also the case of the musical.

The BDS board elections will be organized as a final oral exam in front of a jury. Questions also remain about humanitarian trips to Madagascar, India and Senegal during the Summer. Certain actions, such as the blood donation operation carried out by GduCoeur have been taken over from. All these events are at the heart of the social skills advocated at PSB. A heart that shall not stop beating. We also intend to answer these questions with palliative solutions and constructive propositions.

Once again, no one chose to impose these circumstances on us. And as we do not even think about this lethal virus, which already disadvantages us, becoming the instrument of an unacceptable handicap in your training, we will demonstrate an even greater resilience.

As written by one of PSB professors to his students: “Please be even more thorough and hard-working than usual, if it can be done. Diligently follow the courses online by being punctual and assiduous. Learn the lessons as you go along and don’t let things become too easy. Take advantage of a “lightened” work schedule. Discover, read, UNDERSTAND, make progress and move on. All these recommendations/actions may seem unimportant today. But they will represent personal victories over this epidemic and its constraints tomorrow. In this time of “war”, there is no small victory, only victories, which one after the other, make you stronger.”

For everybody, there will be a before and an after to the Covid-19, and it is only up to us to build this after, to build it and make it happen through our actions.

To end on a good note, allow me to quote an unknown author: “Happy the student who, like the river, follows his course without leaving the bed.” I chose lighter words for this conclusion, but I especially chose an unknown author on purpose. Because at the end of the day, unknown, we all are. But we are also driven by the same resilience and we will know how to make our ideals, the strength of our determination and the success of our actions known.

I wish you all a wonderful week. See you soon on the campus or online.

Armand DERHY, Ph.D
Dean of Paris School of Business

In this particular context, I would like to inform you of the arrangements made by the admissions department of Paris School of Business.

At this key period of the academic year, and faced with this situation that concerns us all, we have a policy of continuing to support you.

Our teams are teleworking; your usual contacts are available and available to you by phone, email or videoconference during normal business hours. Do not hesitate to contact us.

International Admission to all Paris School of Business’ programs:

All applications are processed on a rolling basis as usual. Individual interviews will still be done by distance managed by your admission coordinator. Feel free to contact your admission manager should you have any questions.

Let us remain mobilized, together, to overcome this difficult period.

Sunday, March 15th - 4.00 P.M

Dear all,

This email is to inform you of several elements related to the intervention of the Prime Minister last night, Saturday 14 March, announcing the closure of public places "not essential to the life of the country" and the passage to stage 3 of the epidemic.

In this context :

  • Fragile people must keep their homes as of Monday 16 March. By fragile people: those with chronic diseases, diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular diseases, disabled people, pregnant women...and also people living with fragile people.
  • The switchover to teleworking for all employees whose functions allow it must be done during the week. In such a context, the probability of the campus being closed to staff in the coming days is increasing. Please make arrangements to retrieve any items you may need in the coming weeks.
  • Reminders regarding online courses via BBC :
    • Please do not modify the virtual classes created upstream by PSB and whose links have been passed on to your students. A virtual class modification would no longer allow your students to connect and join you.
    • A training on the BBC replay tool is still available at the following link : click here
    • 44 new live formations are planned at the following address : https://eu.bbcollab.com/guest/8add30436d9b4c85b10884f92e8f3f87 : Monday 16/03 – 9am + Monday 16/03 – 1pm + Tuesday 17/03 – 9am + Tuesday 17/03 – 1pm
  • Although the instruction has been sent to them, please ask your students to log in with their first and last names, otherwise we will not be able to justify their presence. We will then retrieve the login reports.
  • Please make a systematic recording of your sessions in BBC – you should inform your students in advance that the session is being recorded. These recordings could be re-used for students who might not have been able to attend the course for reasons you can imagine. The session will automatically be recorded in your account once you have finished recording.
  • As a reminder, a support team is available to assist you in case of technical problems:
    In the morning:
    • Julie TAISSON 01 53 36 44 48
    • Dwenaël NICOISE 06 20 09 66 34
    • Jamail : 07 66 65 01 85

      In the afternoon :

    • Julien MIN : 07 50 13 60 85
    • Léo CORMIER : 06 81 63 87 03
    • Florian BISSCHOP : 06 65 21 90 46
  • Some modest advice for your distance learning courses: Don't hesitate to sequence your lessons, to imagine small activities that will "relaunch" the course and allow you to breathe: practical cases, exercises, case studies, analyses of current events related to your subject... 3 hours of class does not mean 3 hours of non-stop debit from you, I am at your disposal if you wish to exchange on this subject and to consider together alternatives.

Thank you all for your help!

Take good care of yourself and your loved ones.

Héger.

MONDAY, MARCH 16th - 4.00 P.M

Dear Partners

Our country, among many others, has entered a new phase in the management of the COVID-19 virus. In this context, the management of Paris School of Business is getting organized, and anticipates in order to face the situation. Following President Macron's speech last night announcing the closure of universities as of Monday, our school, as an institution of higher education, will close its doors to its students as of Monday 16 March, for an indefinite period.

From that date onwards, courses will be held in distance learning. No students are allowed to visit the Campus from Monday. Students will receive web links to attend courses.

In order to monitor as closely as possible the situation of Exchange / visiting students, your students will be sent a questionnaire later today in order to know if they returned home or take on-line courses from Paris. We will check with you their answers.

Be assured that an alternative solution will be proposed so that students will be able to take the exam in their home country. The well-being of our students, as well as your academic year is of the utmost importance.
