The School


Our Philosophy

Over the last 25 years and more, the ESC Troyes Group has developed around 3 founding values: entrepreneurial innovation, cross-sectoral activity and corporate social responsibility.
Developing our institution through experimentation and innovation has given us recognition in the following areas of expertise: management, tourism, design, paramedical, social, innovation and entrepreneurship.
In 2018, the ESC Troyes Group became Y SCHOOLS.


The School of Tourism belongs to Y SCHOOLS, a member of the Conférence des Grandes Écoles (CGE), and benefits from a varied educational ecosystem, thanks to the many courses on offer. This represents real added value for students who, coming from different backgrounds and careers, work together in groups, share and discuss ideas through joint teaching or cross-disciplinary projects.
The school therefore awards a Bachelor in Tourism Management (3-year degree) and a Mastere in Tourism Management (5 years’ higher education), focusing on 3 areas of expertise: Business development and digital strategy, Hospitality and experiential strategies & Entrepreneurship and innovation in tourism


“An international, professional school that meets the tourism challenges of the future.”

Unique courses

The School of Tourism offers unique courses, as part of a large, multidisciplinary management school: the Y SCHOOLS ecosystem. We are a pioneering school that has been built in collaboration with sector professionals. Educational innovation is an ongoing process here.

Aware that with a generation used to new technologies, the traditional teaching methods are out of date, we focus on Learning by Doing. By developing e-learning courses, original exams (24-hour or 11-hour consecutive role plays), case studies, design thinking seminars and personal development linked to other programmes, we make our students aware of the benefits of cross-sectoral methods and sharing of experiences. This is an additional asset giving you the ability to work in any company in the tourism sector, with colleagues from highly diverse backgrounds.


Continuous work-study programmes

Throughout the program (Bachelor and Mastere), our students complete between 13 and 20 months of internship. These internships, which can be carried out in France or abroad, are part of the international approach of our programs since all our students spend at least 6 months abroad in a partner university.
