Visuel MSc 1

Building a basic foundation in the field of management

During their MSc 1 year, students will reinforce or acquire basic knowledge of management and build a tailor-made program according to the specialization they plan to pursue in MSc 2. They have access to support and tutorial resources to help them to build their profile.

They also benefit from a distance learning platform with more than 300 modules in French and English.



Students are given the opportunity to work in a professional situation through long-term internships and sandwich course placement contracts. These are facilitated by company events organized by the school (apprenticeship meetings, internship/employment forum, and career days).
