The Aflokkat campus: a new higher education offer for students in Corsica with the ECMA, EMMA and ESIA schools

Aflokkat, a major island player in training for more than 12 years, is opening 3 new schools in Ajaccio and Bastia. It is based on its proximity to the local economic fabric and its knowledge of business needs that Aflokkat initiated the creation of its campus.

Under the Campus Aflokkat banner are grouped the 3 schools that will welcome post-baccalaureate students at the start of the 2023 academic year: ECMA (School of Commerce and Management), EMMA (School of Medico-Social Professions) and ESIA (School of Computer Science). ) will offer state diplomas and Bachelors and Masters courses to meet the needs of students in the fields of business management, IT and medico-social.

Benjamin Pereney, the director of the Campus sums up his vision in a few words: “We designed these new schools to contribute to the economic development of Corsica and the professional success of its students.”

Digital at the center of the professions of the future

Digital professions are increasingly present in our daily lives and have a growing impact on the economy. They relate to areas as varied as software development, cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, robotics, virtual and augmented reality, etc.

Job opportunities in the digital sector are numerous and constantly evolving. According to a study by the European Union, the digital job market is expected to increase by 12% by 2030, with strong demand for profiles such as developers, cybersecurity experts, data scientists, experts in artificial intelligence and web design.

Digital jobs are also very profitable. According to Apec, salaries in digital professions are on average 20% higher than those in other sectors. In addition to these attractive salaries, they offer significant job opportunities on the regional, national and international job market.

In Corsica, the tech ecosystem is experiencing sustained growth, but local companies are also struggling to recruit digital experts, with around 450 positions to be filled by 2030.

ESIA offers, in Ajaccio and Bastia, Bachelor and Masters courses in fields such as programming, web development, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, data analysis, big data, virtual reality, objects connected, web design and information and communication technologies (ICT). Students will be able to develop their skills in these areas, while benefiting from strong partnerships with national and international companies to facilitate their professional integration.

ESIA is a dynamic place of learning, with an educational team made up of teacher-researchers and experienced professionals, state-of-the-art facilities and a community of passionate students. The training offered by ESIA allows you to become familiar with the latest technologies and tools used by companies to be operational from the start of your career.

ECMA, a business school that puts environmental issues at the center of its concerns

Commerce and management are at the heart of the modern economy, and their importance continues to grow. According to a study by the World Trade Organization (WTO), international trade increased by 3.5% in 2022, despite the many shocks encountered over the period. This means businesses need qualified professionals to handle business relationships, marketing strategies, finance, human resources and project management.

Increasingly, companies are taking environmental and social issues into account in their economic activity. According to a study by the French Development Agency (AFD), companies that integrate sustainability criteria into their strategy have a higher growth rate than those that do not. Employers are therefore looking for professionals capable of managing environmental and social risks, promoting sustainable innovation and developing partnerships with local actors.

Trades and management are essential for future professionals wishing to work in a sector that is constantly changing and offers high salary prospects. According to a study by Apec, wages for these trades are on average 15% higher than those in other sectors.

This is why ECMA, the School of Business and Management, emphasizes sustainability and ethics in its training programs. It integrates Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to train students aware of ethical and ecological issues and enable them to integrate sustainable practices into companies.

ECMA has also set up partnerships with companies committed to sustainable practices to allow students to familiarize themselves with best practices in CSR. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in sustainable development and social responsibility projects with partner companies.

These professions offer employment opportunities in a constantly evolving sector.

ECMA allows students to differentiate themselves on the job market by having skills that are both technical and responsible.

The medico-social sector, a direct route to employment

Medico-social professionals are dedicated to taking care of vulnerable people, whether they are the elderly, children in difficulty, people with disabilities or people in precarious situations. The medico-social sector is constantly changing, with a strong growth in home care needs for the elderly and people with disabilities.

This observation is all the more true on our territory since Corsica shows a marked aging of its population.

According to Metiers2030, nearly 400,000 jobs should be created in the medico-social sector by 2030. This growth is particularly marked in the social work and education sectors, which are increasingly called upon to take supports people in difficulty and people with loss of autonomy.

EMMA, the school of medico-social professions, trains quality professionals to meet the growing needs of the sector. The school offers state diplomas on a work-study basis to allow students to put their knowledge into practice on a daily basis at a work station and in a real situation. Students can thus specialize in areas such as social work, education and support for people with loss of autonomy.

EMMA students are trained in the latest technologies in supporting people with loss of autonomy. For example, they learn to use tools such as motion sensors to detect falls, geolocation systems to facilitate safe travel, virtual assistants to facilitate communications. This awareness of technologies allows students to develop innovative approaches to improve the care and support of dependent people.

The school benefits from the many partnerships forged by the Aflokkat group with recognized structures in the sector to allow optimal employability for its students.
