For the module that is dedicated to coding and data, the Academic Council of Honoris has selected Le Wagon, a coding school that offers short and intensive coding bootcamps.

A unique program combining the best soft skills and digital skills

The program consists of four 25-hour modules that cover personal, social, digital and entrepreneurial skills, and will be fully integrated into the curriculum of Honoris member institutions. A badge is earned at the end of each module, and a certificate of completion is awarded at the end of each course.
