The Master in Management programme consists of four semesters with a total of 120 ECTS credits. These semesters can be completed at our five European campuses (Paris, London, Berlin, Madrid, Torino) or at one of our 70 partner universities both within Europe and beyond.

The first year is focused on advanced learning within the different fields of management through core modules and a selection of electives (15-hour or 30-hour formats). Through these electives the students can explore one or two specific areas of interest in more detail.

The second year can be used to concentrate on one of several possible specialisations, and is also used for the writing of a Master thesis on a topic of the student’s choice. Further to this, students can choose from a rich catalogue of electives (15-hour or 30-hour formats) to further customise their learning experience and plan their professional career paths. In addition, language courses are part of the Master in Management programme.

Beside the academic courses two mandatory internships are part of the Master in Management programme. Students can do these internships either in their countries of study or in a third country.

Alongside the core courses, electives and specialisations, all students will participate in four seminars (one per semester). These are key elements in the Master in Management programme, with all current students coming together to benefit from the internationality of the courses and the participants.

During the first seminar, ‘Start@Europe’ (video of the 2012 edition below), more than 700 students gather at the European Parliament in Strasbourg to immerse themselves in the complexity of European decision-making.

The second seminar consists of a three-day simulation game wherein students learn to combine the different business areas and experience the links between them.

The third seminar prepares students for the writing of their Master thesis.

Finally, the closing seminar, ‘Business in Europe’, consists of a series of plenary sessions and discussions with notable guest speakers from a variety of companies and international institutions.

Pre-Master Year

The Pre-Master Year is designed for students having completed at least two years of university-level education at undergraduate programmes worldwide as well as for students coming from the well-known French Classes Préparatoires.

The Pre-Master Year, totalling 60 ECTS points, is devoted to gaining insight into the fundamentals of management, including introductory and advanced concepts to foster the understanding of the world of business.

There are also courses in social sciences, law, economics and foreign languages. The Pre-Master Year combines requisite courses, interdisciplinary projects and an internship. Students can spend the Pre-Master Year in Paris, studying in French or in Torino, studying in Italian.

Successful Pre-Master students automatically join the Master in Management programme without having to go through any further admission procedures.
