Educational Technology: teaching and training technologies

Where Information and Communication Technologies in Education (ICTE) cover the digital tools and products that can be used for education and training, EdTech technology refers to all of the start-ups, companies and organisations possessing innovative technological expertise focused on knowledge, its learning and transmission.


Our pedagogic approach consists in implementing these new technologies through a clear perspective on the value found in using each one. We develop an innovative pedagogy in order to do things differently and prepare our students for today’s world.

To do this, we have adopted a “test and learn” approach where we first identify promising technology so we can then bring it into the classroom to accurately assess its impact on learning.

As a pioneer in the use of Immersive Virtual Reality as an innovative pedagogic tool, NEOMA BS has positioned itself as a continually recognised player in EdTech, one that contributes to the advances in the use of new technologies in higher education.

  • In mid-April, the school won one of the 11 awards given out at the 2020 Trophées du Digital Learning Awards for its immersive virtual reality case study of Drive E.Leclerc in St-Brice Courcelles.

  • Through this partnership which now unites the School and the network of actors of the French EdTech ecosystem, NEOMA Business School reinforces its commitment to education and training technologies and will put its dynamism and vision at the service of the network. This alliance also allows it to take a further step in the realization of its strategic orientations, which include pedagogical innovation.
  • The ExE project, Experiential Education, at NEOMA Business School was presented in San Francisco on 29 and 30 November, at the global conference Reimagine Education, organised by QS (Quacquarelli Symonds), a well-known leading global higher education company and the Learning Lab of Wharton School, widely regarded as one of the world's top institutions for business education.
  • The 6netic marketing case study, developed by NEOMA Business School, has been filed with the Centrale des Cas et de Médias Pédagogiques (CCMP) (= Educational Case Study and Media Centre).
  • Each year, the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD) organises its annual conference. This year, the event was held on June 7-8 in Copenhagen. The main theme for this edition was “Education 4.0: New employment, new skills, new education.”
  • The prestigious American organisation that places innovation at the heart of its accreditation procedure has attributed a prize to NEOMA BS, confirming the school’s place amongst the top 30 institutions worldwide in terms of innovation and leadership!
  • On October 9, 2017, NEOMA Business School signed a partnership with E. Leclerc Drive for a new case study in immersive virtual reality.
    Whether you’re involved in education or the professional world, we are all affected by the shifts in business and technology that, at one time transitional, have now become permanent. NEOMA BS and E. Leclerc Drive in Saint Brice Courcelles, the first in France, have developed a project together that will benefit both students and employees: learning about the operations of a “drive” store through immersive virtual reality, from merchandise reception and storage facilities to order deliveries in the customer’s car.
  • On 20 March 2017, during IT Night, the 7th such event for digital Companies held at the Madeleine Theatre in Paris, NEOMA Business School was awarded a gold award in the human management and collaborative work category.

  • On 7 February, NEOMA BS took part in Think Education 2017, an event organised by News Tank to discuss innovation and debate the challenges faced by the higher education and research sector today: adapting to the transformations generated by digitisation, to new societal and economic needs, etc.

  • NEOMA Business School, recognised by other management schools for the quality of its innovative pedagogic methods, has made another significant step forward today in its strategy by including immersive virtual reality in its programmes relating to teaching materials.
