Meet Sandrine Malozon, member of the managerial team at the Ecole des sciences et techniques commerciales (ESTC) in Marseille.
What did you study?
I have a PhD in sociology (with a focus on education) from the Université Marc Bloch in Strasbourg (2014). I also have a DEA from the Université d’Aix-en-Provence. My research focuses on inequality in what and where people choose to study.
What have been the highlights of your career?
I’ve always taught. Following my DEA I taught French at a college in Strasbourg. Later, from 2010-2016, I was lecturer and researcher at the Ecole Supérieure de Commerce d’Amiens, where I headed a department researching workplace behaviour.
What is your current job role?
I’m Education and Quality Manager. My role can involve anything from designing programmes, providing student support, and liaising with parents and administrative staff. My work is exciting but very hectic – at the ESTC we have 400 students (that includes 230 taking face-to-face courses, 110 studying remotely and 60 applying for validation of previous experience). Our students are enrolled in BTS (post-secondary), bachelor’s and master’s programmes in communications, marketing and human resources. As a FEDE member since 2005, the ESTC is keen to collaborate with the FEDE Doctoral School – we have several PhDs who would love to get involved.
