Founded in November 2018 by Cyril Pierre de Geyer, this institution focuses on training talents between the ages of 20 and 50, with a primary emphasis on their personality and non-technical skills.
Having already established its presence in Paris, Lyon, Marseille, Bordeaux, Nantes, Lille, and Le Havre, Rocket School will welcome a new cohort of 30 students from Nice starting from October 30th.
Applications will soon be open for those aspiring to become the Business Developers of tomorrow. Selected candidates will be evaluated based on their personality through an online test and an in-person interview as part of the school’s integration process.
Afterwards, students will undergo a three-month intensive training program as Digital Business Developers, during a bootcamp designed to make them operationally ready. They will then continue their journey with a one-year apprenticeship within one of the top startups in the region.
Furthermore, Rocket School plans to offer new training programs focused on digital marketing, community management, and customer relations shortly after its opening in Nice.
