Pedagogical approach

Novethic trainers and experts use a variety of teaching methods and favor interactivity: quizzes, surveys, interactive games, demonstrations, experiments (case studies, simulations, etc.).

Novethic training combines theoretical teaching and analysis of current events.

Educational means

In personthe room is equipped with a video projector or a giant screen, whiteboards or paperboards, as well as electrical outlets for connecting computers and telephones.

From a distance, the training is done by Teams. The exercises and moments of interactivity are provided through dedicated tools (Klaxoon, Menti, etc.) via the creation of sub-rooms or screen sharing. The PDF support is sent after the training.

Assessment methods

The knowledge of the learner is evaluated in the form of a quiz at the end of each training.



This training is intended for financial market players (managers, analysts, investor relations, ESG manager, marketing manager, financial advisers), but also for professionals within companies in any sector (general management, CSR manager, communication manager, investor relations, innovation department) and consulting firms.


No prerequisites are necessary.
