Business Fundamentals



Development & Production


This initial offering includes a one-time mentorship from Jean Noël Kapferer, teacher, author and speaker. Students will have the opportunity to work directly with him, towards their diploma.

A basic, evolutionary programme

By combining the Brevet Fédéral of Communication Specialist with the best content from CREA’s programme curricula, the Communication & Digital Strategist + BF qualification allows you to gain training in all aspects of multichannel communication, with a 360° vision, in order to enhance your online and offline skills.
This dual programme to obtain the Brevet Fédéral allows you to master communication basics and gives you the necessary knowledge to create and optimise strategies for digital communication.

A tailored course

The course includes 400 hours of lessons and is designed in order to fit around a full timetable. The lessons take place Monday and Wednesday evenings (6–9.30pm) and two Saturdays per month, from January 2022 to April 2023. The lecturers, all experts and professionals in their own fields, will support the students, combining theory and practical experience, which is always relevant to the professional world.

Learning 7, continue learning at home

Each course participant will receive 6 months free access to the online learning platform LEARNING7 and the course: “Marketing in a Digital World”. As well as allowing you to revise the ideas presented in the course, these online lessons are tailored to your pace and result in additional certification.
