Program IBBA Ferrières 2024-2025

Preparatory Business 

At the end of two years of the Ferrières Business Preparatory Cycle, students who continue their studies through the IBBA benefit from an exceptional program taught entirely in English. These two years allow them to become autonomous and adaptable to a multicultural context and to develop their skills in the specialization of their choice. 

Internationalization and entrepreneurial project in the 3rd year 

The third year is divided into two parts: a semester in Barcelona on the Ferrières Campus, then in January, a return to Ferrières for an entrepreneurial project in H-Tech Valley, GA Education’s innovation center. 

Specialization and work experience in the 4th year 

Ferrières values professional experience and offers its students the opportunity to benefit from it during the fourth year, the year of specialization. Based on a rhythm that alternates between school and work, this format can allow them to fully finance two semesters of study. It is also in the fourth year that students choose one of the IBBA’s specializations. 


  • Hospitality: Luxury & Lifestyle
  • Events: Design & Operations
  • Catering: Gastronomy & Events 
  • Revenue Management: Operations & Distribution
  • Hospitality Talent Development 
  • Digital Marketing: Hospitality & Innovation


The Ferrières Training Experience combines 4 main teaching methods:

  • PROFESSIONALISING EDUCATION, which allows students to acquire technological, scientific and technical knowledge taught during the course to reach a given level of expertise through interactive courses.
  • APPLIED EDUCATION (also known as P.A.P. for the Program for Professional Acceleration) which allows students to put the knowledge they’ve acquired into practice and to understand the professional challenges facing companies in the hospitality sector. This approach also contributes to personal development both in terms of maturity and in terms of professional orientation (fields of specialization, companies, professions, geographical regions, etc.).
  • INDUCTIVE TEACHING through participation in regular and one-time events (trade fairs, networking events, masterclasses, competitions, visits, internships, etc.).
  • INDIVIDUALISED SUPPORT for students in terms of personal development, further studies, professional goals, and employability.


Each course is assessed both by Continuous Assessment (CA) and by a Final Examination (FE). All the assessments for each course lead to a CA mark which counts for 60% and an FE mark which counts for 40%.

  • Continuous assessment work varies depending on the course, examples include: participation scores, multiple choice quizzes, individual or group presentations, etc.
  • Final exams may include: a practical test in a professional environment, case studies, projects, and writing and defending dissertations.

RNCP level 6 title (equivalent to a Bac + 3). Responsible for international hotels and restaurants.

This certification is composed of 4 blocks of skills. Students must complete the related courses or equivalents within the VAE (validation of acquired competencies) framework.

To receive the certification, each student must therefore acquire all the skills that make up each block of skills.
